The Tank is a 2007 went through a bunch of mods first time around pump nano tuners compact fluorescent light kit and so on ! And here we are today after a ten-year break ! On February 1 2021 I upgraded the lights again to Steve’s LED with the iridescent boosters and hurricane X controller !
For the new tank equipment maxi jet 600 pump
Tunze skimmer 9001
In tank media basket
Hydor nano circulation pump 425 Gph
Tunze nano 3152 ATO
Live rock and live sand 20 pounds live rock not sure how much sand is left but it was two bags of Carib Sea I believe
I purchased the rock and the sand in 2007 when I set my tank up the first time around !
I can’t believe I actually kept water in the tank and took the time to top off the tank with rodi during my ten year break
From reef keeping however I did know that I would be back eventually . But now with the kids out of the house no more race cars and the youngest is in his third year of college I figured this was the time or it was time to pack it in for good !
