This will be my build thread for my 36 bowfront. The tank was about two months old. I got lots of cyano, dinos, and diatoms. I also had a velvet outbreak and lost all but two fish. I am not happy with the aquascape and felt as though I need to re do it as I was rushed the first time through. I didn't want to wait while being fallow also. So here it goes.

Light: Marineland Reef capable led light. (does good job growing my organ pipe coral. But am going to upgrade eventually.)
Filter: Penguin biowheel 100&150 HOB
Stocking: after fish loss I have a B&W Clownfish and a PJ cardinal left.
Inverts: skunk shrimp and 4 hermit crabs.
Coral: two large Organ pipe corals (green)

Pics will be posted as I move along.

Awesome! I love build threads! Following!

(And we can move the thread to member tanks if that's what the OP wants.)

if you want to you can to bleach or vinegar baths. BRS has good videos on how to cure live rock. To take it to lvl 1 and back to mature will take months.
It’s not live rock, it’s my rock that was dry in my tank but then my tank was infected with velvet so I need to kill anything that’s in my rock would vinegar work?

what are you going to do differently this time around? the best way to not lose fish to disease is to have good live rock, feed good healthy food, and add fish slowly
all fish will be QT first of all lol, Also taking it slow, adding only a fish a month until i'm stocked. my fish are already fed pretty good food. But yes, im doing it differently
 

Where do you go in case of a real reef tank emergency?
