    Haven't updated in a while! Been busy on vacations etc and haven't really added anything but things are looking good. My JF Raja Rampage is finally showing a little growth and my WWC Hologram has really taken off, along with my UC Fascination Favites. Just iPhone pics today.

    Trying to figure out this Canon... It will definitely take a while but these are better than the iPhone. IMG_9097.JPG IMG_9120.JPG IMG_9122.JPG IMG_9183.JPG

    Beautiful tank.

    That orange Fungia is really really nice.

    Great! Not dosing anything yet. I got the DOS for the apex but I'm waiting for Neptune to fix the bugs on the new system before I buy one and set it all up. For now just changing 15-20 gallons a week and adding BRS 2 part as needed. I do add acropower a couple times a week too. And feed the tank LRS and reef chili daily.

    Here's a video I took. Just uploaded it to YouTube so I hope I'm doing this correctly. Can anyone ID my wrasse that shows up at the end? Can't figure it out.

    Your tank is looking good! Are you liking the reefer 250 so far?

    Thanks!

    I am loving the 250 Reefer, best choice I made. If I had to criticize one thing, it would be the ATO. It only lasts me 4-5 days before I refill. I am looking for alternative options for it.

    I agree on ATO. I have the 350 and had trouble with it getting clogged and not working. Replaced it and haven't had any problems since.

    Took a few new pics on my iPhone. Everything growing great. I can tell a difference since I switched to aqua forest reef salt.

    Also had a pretty great birthday this year.... Can't wait to hook it all up.

    Anybody have any good suggestions on a cabinet or something of the like that is low profile that can house the apex equipment outside of the tank cabinet? I will not be able to fit all of the equipment under the tank, not enough space. Thanks!

    About an hour away, was trying to avoid making the drive if I didn't have to. Also was worried the quality for saltwater wouldn't be great from Ikea. Do you use an Ikea cabinet?

    I think if it will just be housing your ATO it'll be fine
