I’m in the process of cycling a 90 gallon aquarium with a 25 gallon sump, it’s week 3 of cycling
I began the cycle with 50+ pounds of caribe sea Arag alive reef sand 40 pounds of special grade and the rest Fiji pink
Lots of dry rock( I didn’t weigh and can’t begin to guess the amount I used)
I have a gen 2 and gen 3 eco tech radion XR30, a hygger DC pump, red octopus 110 int protein skimmer, and a do aqua auto top off.
I’ll be upgrading from a 28 gallon cube, I’ve never had a tank larger than a 30 gallon or with a sump so I’m excited to start adding my fish and corals to my new tank.
I plan on starting a refugium with chaeto once the aquarium is up and going as well as adding additional equipment, I’m planning on adding 2 MP40’s into my main tank and a refugium light and small nano powerhead in the sump.
I’ve moved some inverts into the 90 gallon and hope to move the fish in the next week or so.

Coming along well. Loving the two island aquascape. Can't wait to see your build progress.
I want the fish to have lots of places to hide and still be able to see them as well, I tried to “fix” my initial aquascape which I liked better and nothing would go back the way it was so I ended up with the current aquascape and vowed to quit trying to make it better, lol

Put the link to your build thread in the spot that is circled.
If this is your build thread this would be the link.
