I have finally made up my mind to start the process of upgrading my reef tank from cheap $55 petco non drilled tank because of the money pit that it has been with minimal success because of limitations of this tank. ive added all kinds of extra equipment to make up the differnce but this setup has been fighting me night and day! lol As a added push to build new tank and setup was how unprofessional looking the tank was with hangon overflow and tons of cables running into my tank and being that it is a office tank there needed to be a change! The biggest part was my smart idea of putting the 55G tank on an office desk! 500Pounds and 5Months later just before closing my office i hear the legs on the desk buckling underneath itself! i run to the tank as if i was going to catch it :| Which i kinda did and luckly had my phone on me, called my LFS & they sent someone over ASAP and helped me brace the tank until i was able to find a basic 55G stand. Thanks Carlos! Since this ive set up the tank in the next room in my office to keep everyone alive in the 55G and now that the office desk is gone im building this Red sea Reefer 525XL in that spot! Soooo long winded into over! on to the good stuff! So far i have my LFS putting together a huge assortment of equipment to make this tank somewhat easier on me to maintain and enjoy to its fullest potential as a reef. Would love some feedback from the community of R2R of any of the equipment/ setup that im planning on running to have the most successful reef i can manage. Heres what i have down so far! Red Sea Reefer 525XL. Ecotech L1 Return pump. Center light for SPS Ecotech Radion gen 4 XR30 PRO. Each side left and right Ecotech Radion Gen 4 XR15 PRO for LPS. Apex Gold Wifi controller. Apex dosing pump and reservoirs. Bubble magnus D8 protein skimmer. 300Watt heater. 2 Apex WAV pumps (rated up 4000GPH each) 120Pounds of FIJI pink Live sand. Thinking Minimalist on rock for lots of swimming room for fish and sand dwellers but enough to place a good amount of coral on. thinkning 75-80Pounds of rock in DT. Marine pure Block 8"x8"x4" in sump. Needing help on deciding on how to do refugium in skimmer section of sump and also deciding what light to run over it. (also run miracle mud? sand? BB fuge?) what type of reactors to plump into return pump via gate valve? carbon/biopellets/GFO etc... Should i run a chiller or should i spend that money on getting AC dialed in at work...? lol AC at work just has huge fluctuation in temperature throughout the day and night. (bad insulation and old AC units) Appreciate any comments, suggestions or just your 2cents on things to do or better not to do! I really want to do everything right the first time and have a thriving reef for many many years to come! Thanks!!!!
