I have once again been captivated by this hobby. I once had a reef 10 years ago lit by power compacts holding only softies, rocks, and fish. Due to some life situations and a budget, I had to shut it down and move on.

Now, life is settled, the kids are older and an old buddy that donated me her old marineland 75g . This was enough to suck me in again. The acquisition of knowledge and the neverending challenges are what drives me (and likely most of us) in this hobby.

I am somewhat of a tinkerer, and I refuse (and can't) overpay for something I can get for cheaper or build myself.

My tank is 5~ months old at this point,

Parameters:
Phosphates: 0.03 (Dosing to avoid Zero)
Nitrate: 15~ (Rgg)
ALK: 9 dKH
Ca: 450
Mag: 1400
Temp: 78~
