Hi,I'm Setting up a new system a 65g Tank with sump and upflow scrubber Santa monica hog 3
My last system was a 120g tank with Deep Sand bed,seagras,razorfish and porites corals,it was a very simple system with skimmer,sump and kalkwasser dosing.
My new setup will have a shallow sandbed and the light is more in the blue spectrum.the Display light is 4x54w t5 and 3x75w led and the seagrass tank had a lumenbright reflector with 600w hqi/MH bulb sunmaster cooldeluxe,this bulb had a very nice light too my eye,about 8000kelvin.That tank was acrylic my new one is with Low iron glas.
we got a new house and it was not possible moving the old system with me.
Greetings from Germany...

Hi there and thanks:)
Yes,thats the plan and no seagrass in this one it is hard to get Here in germany,So I'm thinkin anojt sps corals like montipora,seriatopora and stylophora,no acropora;)
SM please tell me more about the liquid dosing you did on your tank,how did you do it?what Kind of food etc..

That tank had a peristaltic "enteral" medical pump that fed a few milliliters of blended food each hour. The hard part is keeping the food cold so it does not spoil. I used a wine cooler, but a bigger solution is a mini refrigerator with the food inside, and the tubing running through it. You can find examples of this by googling "NPS refrigerator feeding" or "non-photo coral liquid food refrigerator".

Post what you build here :)
