    Hello everyone,


    I hope everyone is enjoying their tanks and having lots of success. As some of you have already known, I recently had a tank crash. Long story short, I went overseas for burial of a relative and came back to a tank which the sump ran out of water causing my return pump to burn up. From their everything went south. More details here. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/when-disaster-strikes-it-strikes.296162/


    This has set me back big time but also gave me the opportunity to restart and fix some things I always wanted to. The few changes are in terms of equipment upgrades. I wanted to replace the stand but that would be starting all over from scratch. I have implemented a couple of fail safe such as having my skimmer shut off once the waste collector is full.

    Equipment:
    · Return Pump: Vectra M1

    · Plumbing: Chiller feeding from Vectra

    · Control: switch Ecotech Radions and Vortech Pumps to Reeflink

    · Flow: upgraded existing MP40 to QD

    · Dosing: GHL Doser 2.1 ( replaced old Dosing Pumps)

    · Skim Waste Collector: Avast Davy Jones’ Skimmate Locker with Apex digital switch


    I decided to stick with a Soft coral or easy coral dominated tank instead of going for the more expensive route of SPS corals. I will slowly restock the tank as some of the corals I thought were dead are making a comeback.


    Livestock:

    · 3 Anthias

    · 1 Melanurus Wrasse

    · 2 Clowns

    · 1 Flame Angel

    · 1 Green Chromis

    · 1 Flame Hawkfish


    Quarantine| Frag Tank


    Since I never really quarantine neither fishes or corals I decided to make things right this time (I think). I plan to keep frags in this tank since I will only add two more fish to the main display, I will keep a low Bio load this time. I will eventually convert the QT tank to Frag tank after I make my mind up.

    Since I will be leaving once again (praying nothing happens) for four days when I return I will decide what livestock I will add to the QT 1st. I always wanted a Purple Tang or Power Blue. The tank is already cycled and ready as the water and filter comes from the main display. I need to replace my plumbing as well as do proper cable management.
    Setup:


    · 20 Gallon Aqueon Aquarium

    · Cheap knock down stand

    · Light: Kessil A160W LED Tuna Blue

    · Flow: Ecotech MP10W (old pump)

    · Heater: Aqueon Heater

    · Filter Aqueon Power Filter ( Old)

    · ATO: Old JBJ ATO
