Hi guys!

Time to get a new thread going for the upcoming tank! Im really excited about it and im going to do my best to create an awsome reef out of it. Im mainly an SPS guy and will carry on in this direction. Hopefully with more success than my previous 2 tanks!

Some info regarding the build

Tank and stand: Red sea reefer 425XL
Light: 2x Radion XR30W pro (might get another gen 4 at some point)
Streamers: 2x MP40QD. Thinking of placing them on the backside and getting a FX150 on one of the shortsides.
Skimmer: Deltec SC1456
Heaters: 2x Eheim Jäger 150w each
Controller: Apex 2016 and Ecotech Reeflink
Dosing: ATi DP-6
Returnpump: Jebao DCT-6000 (at some point it will get replaced with a Vectra L1)

Livestock:

1x Zebrasoma flavescens
1x Paracanthurus hepatus
1x Ctenochaetus strigosus (blue eyed)
4x Anthias squamipinnis
2x Amphiprion ocellaris
1x Pseudocheilinus hexataenia
1x Oxycirrhites typus
1x Salarias ramosus

Plans:

* Purchase a calcium reactor. Might get me one of these soon enough. Nothing set in stone.
* Full Aquaforest Probiotic program for SPS (ULNS).
* Semi minimalistic scape filled with SPS and a selected few SPS (acans and fugia mainly)
* Hardplumb the return on the exsisting reefer plumbing and adding a fragtank (fragtankg wont be added from start)

Cant really think about anything else to mention atm. Feel free to ask questions! Build will start on february first since thats when we're moving into our new home! :)

Nice!! Sounds like a fantastic build! Welcome to R2R!

What part of Sweden? Do you know who Lasse is?

Thank you! I hope that all my wrongs in the past have taught me something. Time will tell I guess.

Welcome to reef 2 reef. The GREATEST online saltwater forum! I like the XL series red sea offers. I've also been thinking about setting up a flow pattern like you mentioned, gyre on the side and other flow in the back. Again. Welcome.

First off the build wont start until february when we move to our new apartment so the thread will be at still pretty much.

Regarding picutes there's not much to show atm. The tank is boxed and at my LFS, will be delivered feb 1.

Happy reefing!

It would be good if you could make it easy to raise and lower the main two supports so you could get in and work in the tank easily.
