    Hi I am new to this online posting thing
    And still new to reefing
    This post is going to be a king one
    I tried starting a 75 gallon last year around this time and it was THE WIFE who gave the go ahead
    This is personal but I was diagnosed will cancer so I stopped
    I went though 4 surgery,2 months of radiation and 6 months total of chemotherapy and now here I am
    But all this is related because what got me though all that mess was coming on here reading people’s
    Posts and giving me ideas on how to do my tank
    So for the first 2 months of chemo and radiation no surgery yet this is how far I got

    Eshopps I think it’s a rs300 sump bubble magnus
    Curve 5, eheim heater and skimz dc return pump

    In February I had to sell the system to fund for the 4 surgery I had to go though

    Fast forward 6 months later I finally felt better to start a tank again but with limited fund don’t know when I am going to finish it but here it is

    I keep my old skimmer and pump from my old system

    Hope your health is on the incline and sorry to hear that. Glad you found a passion that may have given something else to think about. Great looking tank and that floating canopy is really sleek!

    Welcome to Reef2Reef
    Reefing and watching the tank is one thing that makes me forget all the other trouble and mess that life can be.
    You have a great system and are off with a good start.
