My name is Patrick and I am just returning to the hobby after 5-6+ years out. I have had tanks since I was ten and transitioned from tropical, to deep into African cichlids, and then into salt water tanks before my break in my early to mid twenties. Now that I am married and a father settling into my first home I am very excited to get started back up. I am currently setting up my rodi unit/saltwater mixing station in my basement and just purchased a 90 gallon corner flow that I will be picking up from my LFS this week. I do have a little time as we are waiting for our carpet to get replaced before I fully set up the tank so I would love any tips or advice as it does seem like things have changed a bit over the years. I also still need to purchase some the basics as well as a sump and lighting. Checking out some of my old favorite online stores like Bulk Reef Supply there seems to be a lot to chose from when it comes to sumps so I would love to hear any recommendations as well.
I’m planning a mixed reef tank with fish.

Thanks and nice to meet you!
