Hi everyone, I’m starting a new build and wanted to use this space to document it. I’ve loved aquariums since I was 7 and still remember the day my dad brought home the first tank. It was fresh water for several years, I moved on the planted and for about 20 years in reefing. I’ve had about 6 tanks- all nanos, so this is my first real reef tank. I acquired the reefer and equipment about a week ago and it is currently cycling with Red Sea reef mature on day 4. My biggest pet peeve is visible equipment in and around the tank and a mess of wires in the sump so i’m Really going for neatness here. I currently have a Red Sea max nano that I will be selling in a month after moving my stuff over to the 250. So here goes... Tank:Red Sea Reefer 250, white stand, non modified sump Control: New Apex Return: Apex COR 15 Skimmer: Nyos 120 Lighting: 2x AI Hydra 26 HD ATO: Apex ATK, 5 gallon reservoir in stand, pmup and Apex water level sensor Dosing: Apex DOS & DDR wavemaker : Apex WAV BRS pump dosing NoPoX controlled by Apex Sand: CaribSea pink Fiji Rocks: CaribSea shapes After 21 days I plan to start bringing over livestock. This will be a mixed reef.
