What’s up reefers,
Starting my new tank. Had to go bigger this time.
decided to go bare bottom. Running 2 AI 16’s, rs100 sump, Eshopps 120 skimmer, Red Sea 4 head dosing pump and the list goes on.

haven’t thought about exactly what I’d like to do so if you guys have any ideas or opinions I’m open to it all. Even thought about loading it up with frag racks and work on growing a variety of corals.

Anybody have experience with Reef breeders powerheads? For some odd reason my controller is frozen up. Won’t let me reset it or use any different functions other than the one it’s currently running. And yes I’ve unplugged and plugged back in lol

Small update to keep the thread going! Lol

salinity: 1.025
Nitrate: 1
Phosphate: 0.012
Ammonia: 0

she’s coming along. Maybe a little DIY frag rack action coming soon.

started the tank off with some ceramic media from an established tank. Surprised how quick the tank is going through its cycle.

what would you guys like to see in the future with this tank. Spark some ideas. I know patience is key so there’s no rush of course. Open to all ideas
