Big things coming for the tank. Picked up some stuff got another energy bar and a controller board from adaptive marine. I then bought a sheet of expanded pvc because I'm going to make my own cabinet and put the controller board as the face of the cabinet with a hinge on it. Its going to be similar to the adaptive reef controller cabinet but mine will be taller.

I'm to the point ima have to start dosing alk my tank is loosing .1 to .2 dkh so I got a dos and will be putting a container in the cabinet for alk and calcium. Really like the brightwell products and it's recommended to use on the moonshiner since there are no trace elements in them.

Finally got my cabinet almost done just have to mount the front on a hinge and put a lock on it. Also got some 3d printed parts from printed reef ecotech holder, as ring and tunze holder they are amazing highly recommended. Ended up grabbing a few shots of the coral been looking amazing too!

Finally got my cabinet finished up and controllers mounted. Also my essence skimmer bit the dust so I just purchased the nyos 120 already way happier and the ability to control the air and water separately is awesome! I did get 3 new fish also a tomini tang, lightinging maroon clownfish and a green clown goby. Also got a red serpent starfish. I purchased all these fish already quarinted so I don't have to mess with that. I will be adding led lights on a door switch programed to apex will update when I get that done.

@Skibi wow what an update! What happened to the Essence skimmer? I’ve got one myself but haven’t ran it yet. Nyos gets great reviews. Better watch your Maroon they get nippy, but might just be when paired up. How do you like your Adaptive Reef cabinet? Are you going to put more on it? Printed Reef 3d stuff is great. They’ve done a lot of custom printing for me.

Not sure i just think it got old and the pump gave out on it have never truly been happy with it so wasn't sad to see it go lol. I like the cabinet the only thing thats adaptive reef is the front i made the cabinet part myself to suite my needs better. Ya i wish i would of looked into 3d printing sooner i also got some stuff from harrys aquatics almost have eliminated all my magnets now in my tank.
