Hey everyone!

I had a 60 gallon breeder as my first tank about 12 years ago. Travelling for work forced me out of the hobby but I'm happy to say I'm getting back into it with a Flex 32.5. See below for build equipment:

-25 lb Carib Sea Ocean Direct Sand
-30 lb dry rock from LFS
-Eheim 150W heater
-Upgraded to Sicce Synchra Silent 1.5
-Upgraded to 2 x Intank Media baskets
-Added 1x OW-2 and 1x OW-10 Jabaeo powerheads

Stocking so far:
-1 x Ocellaris Clownfish
-1 x Royal Dottyback
-1 x Lawnmower Blenny
-1 x Emerald Crab
-2 x Mexican Turbo Snails

Coral:
-1 x Kenya Tree
-1 x Green Star Polyp

Future plans include another clownfish and much more coral. Thanks for looking!

Free is free. I learned why it was free once it was in the tank haha.
Love free..Haha probably want to pull it off the main scape asap unless you want your whole tank to look like an Irish hillside! It’s all good on its own little island or overflow wall but it’s annoying to try and deal with later on.

Yeah I should've made an island. Could glue it to the overflow wall though thanks for the idea!
