    I started this tank in the beginning of December 2017 after being out of the hobby for about six months. I've been living in a second floor apartment and my landlord said NO WAY! I am now renting the apartment below me also so this means....reef tank! My tank is a deep blue rr50g with a 30 long sump I built for my last tank.
    Equipment is pretty basic.

    Dct-4000 return
    Reef octopus 150int skimmer
    Mp10/40 in my display
    As far as lights I'm running two led black boxes on a simple digital timer.

    My animal list

    Orchid dottyback
    Yellow assessor
    Linespot flasher wrasse
    Starry blenny
    Wheeler's goby
    Strawberry crab and various other snails and crabs.

    Well let's get to some pictures!

    These little gobies are so cool

    My strawberry crab, he's pretty elusive and definitely DOES NOT like to have his picture taken

    Looks great. What are your plans for finishing the stand? Are you planning to wrap it? Since you have a pretty decent edge around the tank I would put some time around it. I know a couple of stands have it and I’ve always liked it. Maybe also put something to hide the pipes. You could do a piece of acrylic with magnets attached to the outside of the tank or maybe some reef artwork. Maybe a sand dollar, dried star fish in frames.
    I’ll try and find some examples for you.
    Keep up the good work

    I'm starting to realize they are my favorite for sure. You can't beat the three viewing sides

    Thanks! I've been thinking either some pine barn board to go with the wall behind the tank or some nice plywood with a cherry or maple top.

    I actually ordered him from live aquaria! It's been in the tank a few weeks now and I really only see him at night.

    Everything seems to be doing well. I got a free sps of some sort from aqua sd. Hopefully it colors up!
