@acanman It's great to see a fellow reefer with a Red Sea 250. I've got one too check out my build thread. These are great reef systems and a lot of fun!! Take it slow and you'll have a lot of success. Following.

One thing I did a little different on my sump department I switched the skimmer and fuge spots so my fuel could be bigger and my skimmer fit in the smaller spot, I've already got some live rock in it, gonna wait till the cycle is totally finished to pick up some seed algae.

Picked up a bonded pair of Picasso perks from SA aquatics there local to me and have amazing deals on clowns. Also picked up one of there captive bred Mandarinfish. And scored a ton of florida ricordia's for 20 a frag and half the frags had multiple shrooms on it.
