I really appreciate the kind words AiKkz. I just checked out your build, not too shabby yourself, nice work! I will definitely try to keep the updates coming more frequently since the tank is moving away from the rocks and water stage

very nice build you have. Being a tech person I rally like all the components of this system.

Thank you strange33w, Ya the gear is almost as fun as the fish and corals, especially when things are working as intended.

Thanks AiKkz, I am really liking the flat rock as well. Stuff in my frag system always seemed to do better than in my old display, and I think that was partially due to the consistent light on the flat frag racks.

So my fiance and I are looking to buy a new shared camera. She is a marine biologist and wants to use it for whales and such on these multi-week whale/bird cruises she goes on into Mexico and Ill use it for the tank and such.

We want a Canon due to the lenses etc, and are trying to decide between the Canon EOS R, which is mirrorless and the EOS 7D Mark II. She will be doing a mix of photos and video so I think we are leaning toward the EOS R. Does anybody have any experience with these cameras that can add some insight?

Thanks

Awesome build! What is lighting up your rodi and mixed salt bins? Looks cool

Hi, thanks. I cut a hole below each container and stuck these LED discs underneath. Then they are activated by a motion detector when I walk into the garage. Looks like the exact ones I bought aren’t available anymore on amazon.

Very nice build- looking forward to seeing it mature! I am envious of being able to put tanks in the garage, just no easy way to control the heat in FL and a chiller would probably break me in electricity. Keep the pics coming!
Much appreciated jaxredsoxfan, I look forward to it maturing too. The tank in the garage is nice, especially a frag tank where water is always spilling on the floor. Winter is the biggest challenge for me, since I don’t have any insulation in garage and things do get chilly(ish) even in Southern California, but I have 1,500 watts of heaters which do the trick for that system.

I did a water change today and took a quick video of my frag tank. If anyone is local to Southern California (Ventura area) hit me up, I have some nice vivid confetti frags that are all healed up and ready to go. I have several other frags as well.
