Hello all,

Here is my 3 month update on my Redsea E-260 softie reef tank. Tank is doing well all in all. Basic stats:

Redsea Max E-260
Aquafuge 2 HOB fuge

Total 72 gallons

Dual returns with 8 different outflows via locline powered by 2 sicce 750gph pumps

Stock Redsea S600 skimmer on timer goes on for 30 min periods 8 times daily

Media rack has 2 6 oz. packs of GAC and an 11 oz. pack of Chemipure Blue

Refugium has 1lb reefrock fragments and chaeto lit via tunze refugium led light

1 redsea reefwave gyre

Redsea Reef 90 LED's with controller

Have a 10G ATO tank under stand with Duetto ATO system. Above tank in corner I have a 3G tank filled with Kalkwasser continuously dripped into display.

Tunze Aquawind installed on side of tank to cool tank as well as increase evaporation to counter the continuous Kalkwasser drip.

On side of tank I have 5 different monitors with probes. All are American Marine digital monitors for PH, Salinity, Alkalinity, Calcium, and Nitrates. (Considering on soon getting that Seneye Reef system with wifi to monitor all perameters when away from home)

I have finnex universal controller with 2 100W finnex heaters connected. The unit has its own temp probe with hi/lo temp alarms and auto shutoff if temp reaches the high limit you set.

Tank perameters:

PH - 8.1-8.3
Alk - 10-11
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 1-3
Phosphate - <1ppm
Calcium 350-400ppm

Livestock -

8 Month update. Not many new changes. Lots of bio-diversity happening. Different algae, snails, tube worms, baby stars all reproducing. Added 1 clown and a few toadstool and some sinulara. Rocks aren't bare anymore. Coralline growing along with some form of algae that grows in vine like structure around rockwork. Lots of different tube worms as well.
