Hey everyone!
I decided to get back into reefing after a 10yr hiatus after my brother started one up again. I found a 20G Tall on the internet and gathered all my old equipment to start it up. It was the best decision I've made in a long time!

Born January 1st, 2021. My 20G Tall has a CPR2 Backpack Skimmer, Aqueon Internal Hang-on Filter, JVP-102 (5,000 L/hr) Powerhead, Submersible Heater, and a 50W Nicrew Hyper Reef LED Light mounted on the back. I have around 40lbs of live rock and crushed coral substrate.

Current Inhabitants are:
2 Green Star Polyps Colonies
1 Montipora (Mystic Sunrise)
1 Psammocora (Kelly Green)
1 Ricordea Florida Rock (Green Bumpy)
1 Stylophora (Sour Apple)
1 Leptosera (orange)
3 Toadstool Leathers (1green, 2reg)
1 Kupas Damsel
1 Emerald Crab
1 Albino Hermit Crab
2 Blue Hermit Crabs
3 Red Hermit Crabs
1 Fighting Tiger Florida Conch Snail
3 Astrea Snails
2 Nassarius Snails
6 Nerite Snails

Here are some current photos! Everything has gone very well this time.
Water Parameters Perfect:
-0 Nitrates/Phosphates
-8.3 PH
-8.2 DKH
-430 Calcium
-1320 Magnesium
Everything Is Happy, Especially Me!
