This year has been brutal on a lot of us. I was in the process of taking down my 180 because of wife having no work and my work cut in half and also being hurt for the first few months of the year. Sold all my coral , fish , lights , skimmer. I was getting ready to start draining the tank when some good news came. Wife going back to work , I survived 2 rounds of layoffs and picked up some extra work. So I decided to leave the tank running and am happy to say I’m able to rebuild but slowly. Ordered the Gen 5 light ( had Gen 4 Pros ). I have my first new fish in qt. Gonna be fun to rebuild all over again

The more I think about this new build thread it seems more like a tank journal. I run a simple system with nothing more than a protein skimmer. It’s always worked for me so why change what isn’t broken. Picked up 3 small yellow tangs and 2 potters wrasses. I haven’t had much luck with these wrasses so we’ll see. A few nice Acros from a local coral friend ( Randy C ). He’s always got really nice corals

That's what a build thread is Bob, a blog of your reef. The "building" part doesn't usually last long. Glad to see you didn't give up. Keep the dream alive!

tank is doing well. Need to update with some pics but corals and fish are happy
Yes, definitely update with some photos. Sorry you and your family had to go thru some hard times, but thankfully it looks like its heading back in the right direction, forward that is. :)

Glad you were able to start again. Any decent fish stores in Hayward? Loved Aquarium Concepts but they had a fire and never reopened.
