This was a tank that I had planned for a long time now but the setup was delayed by a long time :(finally got to actually setting it up recently! :)

The tank arrived at my house pre-winter 2020 lol
Couldn't figure out how to lift it at first and was busy so I kinda just forgot about it :(

but anyways here we are!

Equipment list
- 3 XR15 pros (might get a 4th later on)
- 2 M2 for returns (currently only have one for now)
- 2 MP40s
- RSK-900 skimmer (on its way!)

- I really hope to get an apex soon =)
- Also really want a fleece roller but plumbing it might pose a challenge since the socks diameters aren't standard sized and it doesn't look easy to remove :(
(^^^ suggestions for this greatly appreciated :D)
- as for dosing and such, if I get an Apex I'll go with the DOS
- reactors? uh not sure yet! (suggestions appreciated)

Stocking
Planning to go pred
- Lionfish : P. Antennata
- Eel : E. nebulosa or E. Xanthospilos
- maybe a scorpion
- definitely some sort of Zebrasoma tang (yellow or purple)

- any other suggestions also would be great :)

yes I did a terrible job of applying the reef cement :(
hopefully it won't look as bad after a while
might add more rock to the scape later

picked up some more equipment from my lfs
- rsk900 skimmer
- a 4th radion
- a 2nd M2 pump
- an apex :D
- a lifegard media reactor
- the diy lid from red sea (just in case ;) )

bad news: was filling up the tank the other day when I tugged on the tubing a bit too hard and it fell right on the inlet tubing connector which cracked it :(
(Yes I know, shouldve secured it :rolleyes: ,)

Either gonna try to glue it or get a replacement part hopefully soon so I can finish filling the tank :p
