I recently moved. My tank was broken down, and shipped with me. Now that I kind of settle down, I started slowly rebuilding it back, with proper design from the beginning this time. The tank's dimension is 30*18*18.
I'm following BRS/WWC 4 months cycle idea. Not sure if I will actually keep the tank empty for that long, but at least 2+ months. That basically give me time to wait for this year's black friday sale to finish up with rest of the equipment investment.
From my previous build, I'm reusing the tank, stand, main light, refuge light, skimmer, dosers.
Flow wise, I sold the pair of Gyre that were running the tank, because I really got tired of cleaning them. Planning get a pair of AI Nero 5, because their low profile and the app. I used AI prime and really like the user friendliness of their app.
Currently just using an old MP10 for the cycle. It's running pretty loud this time, didn't remember it's that loud before. Not sure if it's just old, like 5+ years old model, or it's the first time I run it near max speed. It will stay quiet if I run it 50% or below.
The main filtration method is skimmer + refugium. With some activated carbon later for water clarity.
