So after 4 years with the JBJ45 gallon AIO and all the rookie mistakes I made on it, I have decided to start fresh with a Reefer 350. I got a great deal on this used Reefer 350 tank that the previous owner was using for fresh water fish for some reason. Because he didn't need a sump, it didn't come with the plumbing or sump itself but was in great shape and at a great price.

Because I wanted to go Triton, I had a custom sump made by Advanced Acrylics in Anaheim

Completed the aquascaping with CaribSea LifeRock Shapes (20 lbs) and CaribSea LifeRock (35 lbs). Used E-Marco-400 Aquascaping Mortar to hold everything together.

Added two bags of 20 lb. CaribSea Fiji Pink Arag-Alive! Reef Sand. Tank is currently cycling with Dr. Tim's OaO along with BicroBacter7. Hoping it is complete by end of this week.

Nice aquascape! Looks like it will be a great tank! Don't rush the cycling. Nothing good ever comes from that. I cycled for just under 4 months, and as a result have never had any issues with GHA, diatoms, cyano, etc. SLOW is the only way to really make things easier on you in the long run. Looking forward to progress reports.
