36 Bowfront upgrading to a 75

Users who are viewing this thread

The 36 Bowfront with HOB stuff needs to go. I have started a 75 gallon build. So far I have the stand almost done, most of the equipment is in house or on the way.

Now I need to figure out lighting!!!!! I totally thought this would be easier, as I was entertaining the idea of a Kessil AP9X or AP700 because they claim to cover a 4 foot tank. I can't hang anything from the ceiling, so not sure how to go. I absolutely hate EcoTech and AI for making their "mounting options" 3 separate piece purchases which costs about the same as the damn light. I am at a loss...

I would go with the AP9x. I ran ap700 for couple years, it sucked..supposedly the AP9x is better

I am starting to get anxious. I want to hurry up and get this thing going, but at the same time dreading doing all of this essentially by myself. I did my 50 all by myself, but it was a new system not a transfer. Plus the 50 and the stand were easy for me to move by myself. I can move the stand by myself, though it's a pain, I know I can't move the tank by myself. I plan on draining the 36 down and moving it over to the wall on the other side of the hallway so I can have the room to start getting the 75 setup which will also make transferring everything a lot easier.

No local reef club in your area? I know here on the panhandle we have a large FB group, and people are always willing to help one another with plumbing, move tanks, etc.
