72" x 24" x 36" 270 Gallon in Wall Aquarium
Protien Skimmer - ASM G Series
All skimmers have key features in common: water flows through a chamber and is brought into contact with a column of fine bubbles. The bubbles collect proteins and other substances and carry them to the top of the device where the foam, but not the water, collects in a cup. Here the foam condenses to a liquid, which can then be easily removed from the system. The material that collects in the cup can range from pale greenish-yellow, watery liquid to a thick black tar.
Heater - EVO Dragger 400 watt heater
Pump - Iwaki 1340 gallons per hour water movement MD-40rxt
Sump - Custom made for tank by us
The sump sits below the main tank and is used as a filter, as well as a holding place of unsightly equipment such as heaters and protein skimmers. The main advantage of having a sump plumbed into an aquarium is the increase of water in the system, making it more stable and less prone to fluctuations of pH and salinity
2 - Fans to ventilate lighting and pumps One will be used to move air around the lighting to keep water cool and the other to be placed by the pump so as they will have a longer life span.
2 - Water Alerts (just in case moisture forms around the tank )
Algae Magnets for quick and easy cleaning
The magnet will be on the inside of the aquarium with another on the outside. You will be able to self clean the front of the aquarium if desired. You do not have to put this in it is something I add for all my clients at no charge.
2 - Filter socks
Filter socks are designed to deliver controlled release oxygen into a specific well or treatment area with the purpose of creating a very localized but effective accelerated aerobic biodegradation zone. Upon exhaustion of their oxygen supply (anywhere from 8-12 months) the socks can be removed and replaced.
Lighting - All Lighting from Hamilton
48" Dual Metal Halide lighting
The warranty for a Metal Halide bulb is ONE (1) YEAR PRORATED for the amount of usage from the Date of purchase to the original customer.
2 - 250 Watt Moonlight lighting system ( This will simulate nightime )
1 - 25 Watt UV Sterilizer rated up to 328 Gallons for Saltwater by Auqua UlatrViolet
Ultraviolet disinfection of water consists of a purely physical, chemical-free process. UV-C radiation in particular, with a wavelength in the 240 to 280 nanometers range, attacks the vital DNA of the bacteria directly. The radiation initiates a photochemical reaction that destroys the genetic information contained in the DNA. The bacteria lose their reproductive capability and are destroyed. Even parasites such as Cryptosporidia or Giardia, which are extremely resistant to chemical disinfectants, are efficiently reduced. UV can also be used to remove chlorine and chlormaine species from water ; this process is called photolysis, and requires a higher dose than normal disinfection. The sterilized microorganisms are not removed from the water. UV disinfection does not remove dissolved organics, inorganic compounds or particles in the water. So basically this works hand in hand with the Protien skimmer, as the UV Sterilizer kills the bacteria the Protien Skimmer cleans what is left behind.
Live Rock and Sand so the fish have natural good algaes to feed off of, and an assortment of Sea Fans, Clams, and Polyups. For a NATURAL HABITAT.
Background color is of your chosing. They come in White , Blue, or Black. I recomend going with the Blue background as this will make tank and fish stand out more.
1 Auriga Butterfly -
This is a popular fish, also known as a Treadfin Butterflyfish because, as it gets older, it grows a trailing filament from its posterior dorsal fin, which can get as long as 8 inches. Native to the Indo-Pacific area and the Red Sea, its coloration's will vary depending on the region. In the Indo-Pacific area, the fish is white anteriorly and yellow posteriorly, with a black band across its eye and an eye-spot on the posterior dorsal fin. This eye-spot, or false-eye, is intended to confuse predators; they don't know if the Auriga is coming or going, making it more difficult to catch for dinner. The Red Sea version does not have this eye-spot.
Size: sm. 1 1/2"-2"; med. 2"-3"; lg. 3"-5"; xl. 5"-6" (rare)
Tank: min. 80 gallon
Food: (Omnivore) Needs a varied diet and will eat most anything offered. In the wild they mostly eat coral polyps, crustaceans and algae. Substitutes that can be feed in captivity include frozen and freeze-dried preparations containing algae. Also offer asparagus, broccoli and dried algae. Feed 2 to 3 times a day.
2 Rainford Butterflies ( This is a RARE fish ) -
A rare and wonderful fish with a yellow body, outlined in yellowish-orange, with light grey-blue diagonal lines and tiny spots inside; a yellow eye band outlined in black; a black peduncle spot encircled in white and a dark streak on its tail.

Size: med. 2" to 3"; lg. 3" to 4"
No. in Tank: Usually swim in pairs, can live singularly
Tank: min. 100 gallon
Food: (Corallivore) In the aquarium, this fish has a difficult time adjusting to "captive" food. In the wild, it survives on a strict diet of corals and algae. To induce eating, try coating a coral skeleton with mashed meats. Once adjusted, a varied diet of live brine, mysid shrimp, live black-worms and fresh clams in the shell. Patience is essential with this fish.
1 Majestic Angel ( this fish likes to interact with people but it is a fish that needs care ) Highly Recomend -
Navarchus and Blue-Girdled are other names for this angel. Juveniles have dark blue bodies with light blue stripes and a transparent tail. They morph into their adult colors (dark blue and orange with an orangish-yellow tail), much faster than other juveniles morph into their adult colouration's. These angels are highly curious and like to interact with people who approach the tank. That trait makes these angels very popular. Because they are difficult eaters, this angel is not a good choice for the hobbyist.
Size: sm. 2"-3"; med. 3"-4"; lg. 5"-7"
No. in Tank: More than one, or with other large angels, they must be added together. This fish startles very easily.
Tank: min. 80 gallon
Temperament: Semi-Aggressive. Juveniles are very reclusive and seldom venture out while the adult, while still shy, will when comfortable.
Food: (Omnivore) Needs a diet high in protein and sponges, sponge material. Likes to graze on live micro-algae. Will also feed on large coral polyps, yet needs a lot of algae. This angel will not eat if it doesn't have a lot hiding places.
2 Percula Clownfish ( Nemo ) This is like the fish from the disney movie
Native to the Western Pacific, this fish is very popular, and the most recognized clownfish. It has a bright orange body with three white stripes outlined in black. The orange fins are also outlined in black. This fish is also tank raised (aqua-cultured), and are easier to find than the rare wild fish. This fish lives in small groups composed of one dominate, large female, a smaller sexually active male, and a few small males and juveniles. If the female should be lost or dies, the largest male morphs into a female and takes her place. The next male in the group becomes sexually active and the others move up the "ladder" in the hierarchy of this group.
Size: 1/2" to 1"; can get up to 3 1/2"
No. in Tank: Prefer to live in a group, as long as all are introduced at the same time. Do not mix with other clownfish.
Tank: min. 30 gallon
Food: (Omnivore) Feed a varied diet of both meaty items and plant material. Generally will accept all foods offered.

This silver bodied fish has jet black scale margins on its midsection and orange polka dots on its posterior section. It has a greenish-yellow face and a gorgeous bright purple tail. A good fish for either deep or shallow aquariums, that likes to live in schools. The largest fish is the most dominant and a peeking order continues down to the last fish. While this is a strict hierarchy, there is no aggression inside the group. A good beginner fish.

No. in Tank: Does best in groups of at least five.

Compatibility: Needs peaceful tank-mates. Is an excellent reef system fish; no threat to ornamental crustaceans and other fish.
