    After a long hiatus from reef tanks I just purchased a new(to me) setup. Hopefully after cooking the live rock I will be up and running in the next 6 weeks or so. I will be posting pictures after everything is ready, but in the interest of checking all my boxes here is what I'm working with.

    120g deep blue aquarium
    Stand
    2x ai hydra 52hd
    Eshoppes s series skimmer
    Jebao dct12k return pump
    Professionally built sump/refuge
    Lighting for refuge
    Glass lids for aquarium
    Extra powerheads
    Wave/pump controller
    300w eheim heater
    120lbs of top shelf Fuji and Tonga rock
    20lbs of base/rubble live rock
    3 bags of argonite live sand
    Along with various test kits, additives(kalk, etc)

    I dont plan on adding livestock until the aquarium is running for 90 days or more, just want to make sure I'm not missing anything essential that I over looked. Plan on using esv salt.
