Currently filled and running! Im mixing the salt in the tank which is why you see some sitting there. Now its time to get it cycled. Next up is hanging the lights!
Nice! Actually once the salt is mix in well enough. U could just start to put in frag/coral. Setting up a tank just for coral doesn’t need to be cycled. If you’re gonna put in fishers then u will have to.

I know they would survive but i would still like to establish a healthy biome first. Less chance of getting dinos and other pest algaes. There will be some utilitarian fish but thats about it.

Built the light stand last night. Wanted it to be easy to move if i ever decide to take the whole setup to a frag swap. It can come apart into 3 sections by removing a couple screws. Tank is cycled and the first fish and frags will be moved in soon!

Sixline wrasse, flounder for cleaning the sandbed, some zoas and procillapora added. Diatom bloom has started. Few more weeks and itll be time to put the rest of the coral in.
