I did and used the same screws for the plywood false wall and the IKEA cabinet. Just need be vary careful when screwing into the IKEA cabinet its thin and hollow. Its not hard hard to do
I forgot to update you that I finished my cabinet a while ago

Thank you :) thanks to you and Reef2reef community really for the inspiration and ideas. Yes I am proud of it. There is always room for improvement of course.
I agree we are always looking to improve things. While my cable management is OK it could be better. I am a little OCD :rolleyes:

what levels do you keep your water parameter at? Nice pics! FTS maybe?
Hey there... I really don't have a good FTS but will post an old one. The tank is mainly full of frags and frag racks but are growing great. I have listed my water param below . I am following a process by @PSXerholic Andre Muller. By follow his process you does elements per ICP test. Been follow it for about 4 months now my tank is really starting to take off. By this time next year the frags should really start to full in the tank

Po4 - .04
No3 - 6.0

Look at that coraline algae? That all happened in a year only?? Did you dose anything to grow the coraline? How did you do it?

I am running 8 dkh Alk in my tank. After I watched the BRS master video tonight, I think I am going to raise it to 9. Is it okay to raise 1 dkh in one dose?

I would not raise you Alk more .50 in a day. Just to be safe.. Its more about stability for alk then a particular number. If you are running lower nutrients I would not got to high on alk or will impact your coral color. That coraline algae is only 7-8 months work of growth. I added 2 bottles of this from Alage Barn. Got to maintain proper Alk, Mag and Cal. You have to follow the instructions to the letter for it take off

I see at least 10Gs in your set up lol I was gonna say that reefing today is a whole lot different than 15 years ago but after looking at your equipment you got me beat lol

I work in IT so the tech stuff I love. I wanted my tank automated as much as possible cuz of work travel but hell don't have to worry about travel with the Rona.. I don't have kids so got little extra $ to use up.. You don't need all of the gear to have a super tank
