So for the last year I have been building up and relearning everything in preps for our last tank build. So here goes. Currently I have a 75 gal reef. Unknown sump brand, 30 yr old pro clear skimmer, and simplicity pump. Livestock includes snowflake clown, ocellaris clown, sailfin, yellow tang and coral beauty. 25ish assorted zoas (mostly rehome and rescues). My profile pic is my current set up if ur interested in seeing it.

Now I hate it when folks in our hobby give up and get out. That being said, I'm always looking for a good deal.
New tank:120 gal tank and stand & canopy
Simplicity 240dc skimmer
Simplicity pump
Reef synergy over
Ruby red 36 gal 2nd gen
5 stage RO/DI
Viparspectra lights x2
Current ramp timer pro light
Icecaps water gyre
Jaebo8 pwr heads x2
70 lbs pukani 40 lbs live rock
3 hanna meters
Digital refractometer
Api master test kit

It will be getting set up next summer after our military move. But its getting cleaned and the aquascape will be getting done soon. I'll be reaching out for tips for aquascape soon.

So after going to 3 different stores, Nobody in charleston has the 3/4" bulkhead slip x threaded that I need. So I had to break down and order from brs, no big deal, just having to wait to finish up the build sucks. Any who, the sand arrives tomorrow. Will get the sand, rocks in, & power heads and get water moving in the tank. Then when the bulk head gets in, I'll connect them and complete the circuit. Thanks for viewing my process. Will post pics once things progress

Rock and water in. I like the scape. Lots of nooks and crannies and a couple of caves. Tons of space for corals. Stocking list tomini & scopa tang, coral beauty, lemon angel, pajama cardinals, plus who knows what else. Thanks for viewing.

Thanks. All cleared up today. Still no bulkhead, so sitting a little low. It gets here 2mrw. Then plumbing will get glued in and start circulating. Thanks for viewing.

Been a minute since my last post. Got a new addition, Singapore angel. Had to completely redo entire scape due to aggression with coral beauty. Hope this works. Lost all my coral but saved 4 of my fish. Dialing my water back in before restarting the coral farm. Hope all is well in your own world, have a great day and thanks for viewing!

Been a minute since my last post, everything is going good. Added up sterilizer & BRS dual reactor for GFO and carbon. No new fish additions. I did add green acopora, 2gsp islands, large Eagle eye zoo colony, cyphastrea.
One of my viparspectra lights burned out, luckily I had a spare light. Hopefully just a fuse or transformer in the power supply. Happy reefing to you all and thanks for viewing.

Still here, just a monthly update. Hope everyone is doing well. Recently had a jaebo burn out and Burnt LED took out 1 viparspectra. Threw in a back up light changed settings on wave maker. Still all good in the hood!
Hope all is well with y’all’s reef!
Thanks for viewing
