Dual stage media reactor (running GFO & Carbon)
Wave makers (2 koralia on a hydor wave controller)
Kalkwasser dosed ATO

Sump with refugium packed with baby stars, spaghetti worms, amphipods, copepods, and other beneficial microfauna and macro algae
**2 year old tank (live rock came out of older well established tank)

As far as livestock goes;
Over flow has a pretty good sized orange/red monti cap on it. There some pretty good sized zoa colonies, mushroom colonies, mushroom colonies, green star colonies, Xenia colonies, leathers, hammer, frogspawn, anthelia, ricordea, and a pretty big Hollywood stunner piece.

Random clean up crew, snails, crabs, fighting conch...

Not many fish left. I have 3” vlamingi tang a domino damsel and a two strip damsel

I’d rather not part this out. I’ve drained the tank and everything is in holding tanks so this will be the easiest tank move ever. I have new live sand if you want it I tossed the old stuff out when I drained the tank.

phosphates are slowing going down after cleaning out the filters.  It is down to 0.33 now.   I guess I need to clean them more often.

I use an apex dos for the water changes. I change about 2gal per day which equates to 60 gal per month. I have a 180 gallon tank. I do have a fish room behind my tank which has a 60 gallon storage container and a drain so that makes it even easier. I refill the mixing tank about once per month. The dos spreads out the water changes so I think it runs once per hour. throughout the day.

This is great, thanks. I guess I wasn't sure if Fritz (for example) said "here's ten bucks" or if they said "here's a thousand to cover airfare and hotel."
Also, if Driftwood is sponsoring Callahan, can they get him to autograph the inside of a cabinet door (Or something)?

Cool sponsors, thanks for the update.

With your auto water changes, how often do they run, how many gallons are you changing per month, and how large is your tank setup (sump + tank) in gallons?

Well here is a little bit of background and info on the sponsorships:
Driftwood Aquarium Furniture - is currently the clubs highest contributing sponsor for this year. They have donated furniture (and aquariums) to events, have directly paid for speaker fees, and sponsored upgrades to Paid member events going on this year. Their donations have allowed us to have great prizes for contests, more enjoyable events and more events by allowing us to stretch our club dollars.
Reef On - Is one of our active local store sponsors and has really been an active participant with helping bring some great benefits to the club. They have made donations to our meeting drawings, helped cover costs of bringing in our event speaker, facilitated receipt of product donations and simplified the handling of those donations and pickup by drawing winners. They were a participant in our Spring Fragstock and hope to see them back for the fall Fragstock as well.
Fritz Aquatics - Is a new sponsor for this year and has donated their product for use in our club drawings to help improve product offerings in the drawings and bring in additional funds from ticket sales to further offset the costs of bringing Mark Callahan to our club meeting to speak. They have been easy to work with and we would love to see more involvement from them going forward.
Hopefully that gives a little look into some of the behind the scenes help that our sponsors provide and the impact it has on the ability of the club to offer such great events to our members. So next time you see those drawing tickets for sale at the meetings just remember that these sponsors are making those items available and by doing so allowing us to bring improved events to all of our members!
We couldn't make all of these events happen for the club without our sponsors and we fail at talking about them enough so reach out to them and thank them for their support of the club and you, its memebers!

 I also set up auto water changes. I hated doing them before. Now I just mix salt about 1 per month. Whenever I have stopped doing them I end up having issues. One time I had a massive algae outbreak with green hair algae everywhere. I was determined to conquer it and it took a lot of time. A lot of picking algae off of the rock and doing 10% water changes 3 times per week. I feel like I could have avoided that whole catastrophe had I just kept up on the water changes. Instead of creating a nightmare for myself I just automated the process and it has done well for me. 
As a person who always struggled doing water changes before I automated them, I will say that the best my tank ever looked when I was slacking on maintenance was when I was running bio pellets. But a large refugium with a very good light is looking promising too as that is what Triton commends.

I had a 90 gallon that was scratched up, I actually sold it off as is and bought a brand new replacement.  Here is how bad the tank was:

I do water changes weekly on my 90 gallon.  I know there are some fancy methods some folks use for going without, but they often end up being more work than the water change itself.
