3 months in this is what my reefer is looking like. All fish are in qt and tank has been running fallow for 5 weeks. Getting anxious to put some of my fish (back) in there.

If you can see in the back left corner my lta isn't doing great after I messed with my light settings. Waiting and hoping he bounces back.

Also, not sure if this is how I start a build thread but I think so?

Swapping to a 100 IM ext! Here's pictures

So showing the plumbing here mostly. First try and used black and purple pvc. 1" drains and 3/4" returns. Hard plumbed a media reactor into the return and uv is going in/out from within the sump. Not really any leaks which I was happy with, only exception being 1 or 2 bulkheads needed tightening. I also wrapped the underneath in waterproof led's.

I added about 2 and half gallons of my pod cultures for my mandarin. My fish selection has enjoyed eating sps and some lps so will be changing my coral livestock to mostly softies.
