    So after a nice long break I got the itch again and I’m jumping back into the reefing game. I have just about everything I need to get going and I started my build last night. This time around I’m going with a 40 breeder dt that I drilled and painted and will install an eshopps eclipse overflow box. For the other equipment I am built a 20 long sump/fuge, reef octopus various 2 return pump, 2-jebao pp4 powerheads, cobalt aquatics 100watt neo-therm heater, simplicity 120 skimmer, 24” reefbreeders photon v2 light, and diy stand once I get motivated enough to start building it, lol.

    I will definitely be posting pics once I get to the point that there is water in it. Right now all I have done is the sump and a drilled and painted tank.

    I don’t have enough room for a bigger stand. That’s why I am running a 40 breeder instead of going back with my old 75.

    Yeah it’s just about done. Working the amount of hours I work really puts a damper on my motivation and energy, lol
