It took a long time to cycle and get all the equipment but I finally have my reef almost ready for coral. Got a dc pump for a 50 gal diy sump when that’s done I just gotta add some more dry rock to the left side of the tank to build a slanting reef the other side will stay open for negative space. Looks cluttered atm but it’s coming along. Open to any advice/stocking suggestions I’ve only been Reef keeping for 8 years and I’ve only ever had small tanks before. I’ve also only kept softies and basic fish like a lawnmower blenny. I’d love to find a species of tang that’s well suited to a 6 foot long 36 inch tall tank the sump will have a chaeto area a protein skimmer a Brightwell Aquatics bio block plastic bioballs and a bunch of filter floss. I’m going with the plastic storage tower wet dry filter to maximize space

Still dealing with managing wires but im almost ready for a full tank shot i wouldnt be ashamed of. I have an odd seaweed that looks like long strands of eel grass growing 14+ inches long but better than hair algae!

Thanks! Its still a really messy set up but its getting there. Been 8 months now going kind of slow my last tank cracked and I lost alot of livestock. I made alot of rookie mistakes so this time I'm spending alot more on filtration and dosing.
