Ok guys I’m upgrading my SCA120 to a Reefer 625xxl (not a big upgrade) this will be my 3rd tank upgrade and I’m hoping to get it half way right this time my SCA tank is not bad but There are just something I know I can do a lot better, Not only will this be a upgrade but I will be moving all my livestock over to the new tank which is 45min-1hr way (wish me luck), new house so I thought an upgrade was appropriate, tank will be here Friday.
tank move plans
setup new tank with fresh dry sand add 20-30lb of cured live rock, do the zeovit 14 day cycle, move stuff over to New tank, I hope it goes this smoothly

Below is a list of what I have and use. I update this list regularly.
Tank
Reefer 625xxl
Lights 1 radion xr30 pro G4 with RMS mount
2 radion xr15 pro G4 with RMS mounts
i hope this is enough light for an SPS tank
Flow 4 MP40QD eventually
Return pump Various-6 DC return pump
Filtration SKIMZ ZAR-157 zeovit reactor (I’m doing zeovit 14 day cycle)

The 11th day of zeovit, diatom bloom still in place, I put in 2 tangs (powder blue & lemon tang) and some CUC 8 snails everything seems to be on track with what the 14 day cycle said I’m going to put a branching monti in this weekend

New update I’m on week 4 I did my first water change (10g) everything has been cleared up now for a week or so, I added a few frags last week monti caps easy stuff they seem to be doing fine so a added a few more :) my thoughts on the 14 day zeovit cycle if you know a little bit about reefing you can hit the ground jogging:)
