That is great setup, what are the dimensions of the tank?
Can you share any details about your QT setup? I will be setting up large tank in a few months, so I am interested in what you plan to run long term for QT or grow out?

Thanks so much

So now that you've been out of the reef for a while and into a beautiful FW planted tank, are you glad you made the switch? Is your direct involvement and maintenance with the tank less compared to the reef? I think it looks amazing and you've done a quality reinvention with this tank.

Well tank is 265 gal with 120gal sump.
Tank is 84" L x 30" wide x 24" tall. Sump is 4x2x2'

Ive been using two 40B gal tanks and another 26gal bow front tank for qt tanks.
U can see thr set pic in this earlier post in this thread.
Mainly sponge filter and heater with almost daily 80% wc.
I got my first discus in may and yesterday was when qt is finished cuz i bought couple to several at a time. Total of 5 groups.
Im so glad its over cuz while they were in qt, that was way too much work.
Right now, i dont plan to breed so no plan for grow out but who knows whats in store for the future.

Im glad i switched over for sure. Reef was just too much work for me. Altho qt of discus wasnt easy, now that they are all in, maintenance should be easy with just large weekly wc or possibly no manual wc with daily automated wc system.
Ive kept every kind of tank before(all top quality setup and fish) and this one is my favorite.
Thanks.
