Hi everyone!
It’s been a crazy busy time here and had a lot going on. Been off the forum for a while and ready to come back strong. So between multiple job changes and a move comIng up in the next week or so, thought I’d share what’s new.
I’ve taken my 80 shallow apart and moved everything into a 40 breeder. What a chore that was. This will allow me to get the 80 set back up in the new place in the coming weeks. I have also been selling off most of my Coral recently and getting ready to start a new. What’s the plan you ask? Well, kicking the 20 Long sump to the curb and going with the 40 breeder converted to a sump. All new aquascape with larger rocks rather than piled rubble. And finally, switching out the SB 32” timer for an 8 bulb high output t5 fixture. I opted for the sunblaze 48” fixture. My reasons are light spread and shading from led alone. Looking forward to what the results will be soon after. I’m doing a single ati Coral + and seven ati blue +. It’s an 80 shallow so I can only assume I should be able to grow whatever I want wherever I want. Lol. Well, for now, here’s a few shots of what my 40 breeder has been cooking. Will update as the move begins and changes are made. Happy reefing everyone!

Nice corals.

Congrats on the new improvements. I am sure you'll enjoy the new lighting lay out.

That Blasto is the bomb!

Build update:
Did a single baffle in a 40 breeder to create the sump. Rescaled and Added a nice chunk o rock to the center of scape.
So far I’m LOVING it!

Were you at Reef Dreams? Charleston Reefers group on facebook? I'm about 2 hours from Charleston, in Lugoff... probably never heard of it.

Yessir I was! Great show! I am on the forum as well! Small world. Definitely heard of Lugoff. (Blind Fury is from there lol) But seriously, know of it, just don’t know much about it. Lol. Born and raised here.

I hear the snap seed app helps with the blue. My S8 does a pretty good job filtering it out all but the heaviest blues.
