Ok so fast forward again to January 12 of this year. I added a little more rock changed some power heads around and I believe the canister filter has been long gone by now and I’m just running the 10g sump.

Then we fast forward some more to July of this year. This time I changed the lights to ocean revives and added more rock again. Added more coral and also more fish. Was fights a low nutrient issue for a long time so I was trying to bring them up.

Also wouldn’t to share a pictures of the same clowns I’ve had from the beginning!

So having the Ocean revive lights on the tank for a total of about 3 months I didn’t really like them. They grew coral but not really what I was looking for. So in August I bought Radion G4 pros. This is where it starts to get exciting!! And stressful at the same time ha and you’ll see why. But here is a top down picture with the Radions and how I hung them from the ceiling!

Well actually I can’t upload the top down shot because it says it’s to large of a photo. Which sucks!!

So after I get my lights in and hung my wife tells me our daughter needs her own room now and it has to be my office :oops:! So now I had to plan on moving the tank from the far back bedroom to the dining room which was really the only location I have and it would look really nice in there. Oh and it had to be done that weekend. Unfortunately I did take any pictures of the move but I did after I set it up.

So now I have the urge to redo the sump because these stands don’t like to have anything underneath them so I have to custom build a sump to retro fit underneath the stand!! I should have done this when I drilled and plumbed it but I’m still not sure why I did!

Want to share this as well! With the tank moved and settled in the corals seemed to respond nicely. I guess is was just like a big water change for them!!

With the final update this is the way the tank is right now at its current state! This photo has been taken today. So from December until now this tank has went through a lot and now it’s thriving better than ever!!! Also I’ll update what is running it.
2-Radion G4 Pros
1- 200w Eheim heater
1-Ecotech S1
1-MP 40
1-Jebao RW8
No skimmer
I haven’t had a skimmer on this tank since I moved from the office to the dining room. But I have a decent size refugium with chaeto that I trim back every week. I would give the chaeto away but it has bristle worms and I know some people doesn’t like those guys!! So here is the tank as it sits right now!
