    The 10 gallon brute cans fit like a glove. Waiting on my uniseals and pump, then we plumb! #reeftank #saltwatermixingstation #rubbermaidbrute #darkhorsereef

    Well it’s safe to say that Red Sea has noticed the Darkhorse Reef and wants to help us keep it well stocked on testing and supplement supplies. Thanks to @redsea.aquatics for the opportunity! #redseafish #redsea #supplies #elements #reeftank #aquariumsupplies #darkhorsereef

    She lives!! The chaeto reactor is installed and running. Let’s see how she does. #reeftank #reefbuild #chaetoreactor #chaetomorpha #polyplab #darkhorsereef

    No filter, no jokes, no messing around. Finally this algae is going away. Added a GFO/Carbon reactor, Chaeto to my fuge, lighten my feedings, more frequent sock changes, less intense light schedule, consistent weekly water changes. #reeftank #algaecontrol #maintenance #consistencyiskey #darkhorsereef

    From day 1 to 5 months! How far I’ve come. Started with a 29 gallon tank from @petsmart and a @fluvalaquatics Aquaclear 110 HOB. Now I’m running a full sump/refugium with reactors! Truly blessed and stoked! #reeftank #reeftankbuild #allmymoneygoestocorals #polyplab #eshopps #sump #bulkreefsupply #marinedepot #timelapse #darkhorsereef

    Another upgrade to add to the Darkhorse Reef. The Bulk Reef Supply dual reactor. Little overkill for a 29dt, but gives me some growing room. I’ll be running 3/4 cup GFO and a 1/2 cup carbon. Well check back in a week to see how the algae holds up. #reeftank #reeftankbuild #bulkreefsupply #reactor #gfo #carbon #darkhorsereef

    Sometimes, simple is what works. Need to clean up some more wires and such and wait for my new skimmer. #reeftank #reeftankbuild #sump #starfire #customplumbing #bulkreefsupply #marinedepot #darkhorsereef

    Mocking up the drain line, used unistrut to attach pipe since my cabinet is not traditional. Spears gate valve on both drain and return. Now figure out the manifold for GFO, carbon, and a future use. Thanks to @bulkreefsupply and @MarineDepot for the fast shipping!#reeftank #plumbing #mockingup #unistrut #spearsplumbing #darkhorsereef

    So the sump conversion has begun! First things first, since this sump is all glass I took some precautions as to make sure it’s a 100 percent level. I did that by first checking the bottom shelf for level and trueness. That being done I used Innovative Marine’s DIY Aquarium Leveling Mat. This material is self leveling and removes all pressure points that can lead to tank failure. It’s self adhesive and custom cut, so that makes it easy and fast! I recommend this on all sumps and display tanks. Available @bulkreefsupply and @MarineDepot. Next is the plumbing, waiting on some parts from a number of places. #reeftank #reeftankbuild #innovativemarine #bulkreefsupply #marinedepot #level #sump #upgrade #allmymoneygoestocoral #darkhorsereef
