This will be my build thread for my second reef tank ever. I researched and got most everything I wanted. Maybe a couple sacrifices due to no LFS near by. Tank was built mostly through Amazon and Marine Depot. I'm waiting on my last Amazon order which has my salt, media, test kit, tubing for ATO, chemicals, and food.

The stand was home made with 2x4s and fence pickets. Stand was stained with American early colonial from min wax. It's cheap, rustic, and could hold a truck.

Goal for the tank is 80 plus percent soft coral. Planned livestock is a pair of clowns, lawnmower blenny, and a cleaner shrimp.

Tank : IM nuvo fusion 20 with custom top
Pump: Mighty jet 326
Flow : Jabeo sw4 and spinstream x 2
Light : AI prime HD
ATO : IM hydro fill titanium with IM 5g resovoir
Heater: Ehiem Jagger 100w
Rock: 22 lbs of Life rock
Substrate: Caribsea Fiji pink
Extras: IM media basket, eshopps nano skimmer, and IM media reactor.

Going wet in the next week. Thanks for all the help from everyone thus far.
