After being out of the hobby for 8+ years I finally got the itch to get back in. Here is my build!
IM 30L AIO
Reef keeper lite w/ temp probe for temp control
Jebao DCW 2000 return pump
1X AI Prime 16hd (will add another down the road)
1x Dual head cooling fan
1x Marina 100w heater
1x currently running my old wave pump (this is getting replaced thursday with a Nero 3)
1x jebao 2.4 wifi 4 channel doser (for awc and ato)
1x media rack running activated carbon crushed rock and floss other side runs floss and bio balls
4th chamber is going to be a homemade refuge
28lb of dry rock
20lb live sand.
Custom build stand hollow for storage and all controls!

I will be adding a second doser as I add corals that need it !

Light settings attached. If someone can tell me how to filter photos of the tank I can post those as well! Still cycling but fully equipped for my future water critters.

Update on build. Doser is connected auto top off program is running. I have .375 gal broken into ml 1420ml divided by 10 times 142ml every 2 hours 24min. Checked salinity and level after full day both are exactly where I had them when I started the program.

Finally cycled. Ammonia read 0 nitrite 1.0ppm and nitrate 20ppm. Did 50% water change. Added another dose of bacteria directly to the rocks during the water change. Went to local lfs. Added our first critters.
Ball of macro algea for refuge. They did not have cheato so had me use another green algea...

1 royal gamma
2 ninja snails
1 traunceus snail (however you spell it)
1 green candy cane
1 green paloma
1 green polyp and bluish brown skinned ( was told psammacora)
1 blue polyp and bluish brown skin (again was told psammacora)

Dipped corals in coral rx and drip acclimated
Drip acclimated fish and used a 15min parasite 2 part dip. Sure safe or safety dip or something like that.
