I've been postponing creating this thread for a while lol. So here is my newest tank, running since July 2019. It’s my third tank in 11 years of this hobby.

Starting with the specs!

Tank: Red Sea Reefer 250 (v3)
Lighting: Maxspect Recurve 90 240w
Skimmer: Bubble Magus Curve A8
Return: Reef Octopus Varios-4
Circulation: Icecap Gyre 1k + Vortech MP10w QD
Refugium lighting: Tunze Ecochic
Chiller: Boyu 1/6hp, which is mostly unused, as I run an AC unit for most of the day
Controller: Apex Classic, which I'm currently only using to monitor stuff, not to control anything (yet)
Whenever I see dinos starting to appear, I run a 36w UV until it clears up

Additives:
DIY All-for-reef (65ml per day currently, which is a lot, corals are growing fast!)
Aquaforest's Energy, Vitality and Aminomix daily
Reef-Chilli every 2 days
Polyp Booster + Reef Roids (a small amount) weekly

Target parameters (I try to stay in this range):
Calcium: 400ppm +-20ppm, tested every month
Alkalinity 8.4Kh +-1Kh, tested once or twice per week
Magnesium: 1400ppm, very rarely test it nowadays
Phosphate: 0.03~0.07ppm, tested weekly. It mostly hovers around 0.00, unfortunately
Nitrate: 0~5ppm, tested every month

I'll post more pictures later, but here's one I just shot:
