I am starting my build very soon the tank and stand comes Tuesday. The bulk of the equipment gets delivered tomorrow. I will post a bunch of pictures. The tank is going in my home office and will house mostly Zoas and Ricordia. As well as a clown. I am not sure if I can do a pair.

Everything is here minus some short right angle extension cords. I am mounting 3/8 over inside the stand prior to assembly. I am using some 3mm t nuts for 8020 to hold the pvc.

Tank is up and running!!!

I am using Red Sea blue salt. I mixed my own. I bought a full suite of Hanna testing gear. As stated above I mounted everything prior to assembling the stand. I even added motion sensor strip lights that are connected to a 24v outlet on the Apex.

I am going with a 5 liter dos container for my ATO.

The 5 liter container barely fits in the cabinet. I drilled a couple holes in the top for the pump and the optical water sensor.

Changed the light to a AI Bade coral grow. I like it a lot. I had to modify the stand a bit. It would be nice if AI allowed the horizontal metal arm to move inside the acrylic but I am sure this is only a small tank issue.

Added an Aquatop nano UV sterilizer and the HMS mount for the blade. Excuse the tank. I went a little overboard at Reef A Palooza this last weekend and have some frags to mount.

Nice! I'll follow along as I get ready to redo my IM 10.

How is that fleece roller working for you so far?

Love the shape of that rock. Is that one piece, or did you glue several pieces together?

6 month update. I added a fan as my office runs warm. It’s great it hookups to the apex 24v so no power adapter require. The Zoas are starting to grow reef a palooza Orlando.
