Hi all, I thought it was finally time to make a build thread for my current tank. I’ve had quite a few tanks over the years but have never made an official build thread for any of them. This tank started as a Fluval Evo 13.5 which ran for about 1.5 years before everything was transferred into the current tank. This tank has been running as is since summer 2022. At this point it is pretty packed with corals I’m just letting everything grow out. I’ve included all of the mods I did for anyone else who has this tank and is interested. I would definitely recommend the refugium and return pump/return line upgrades.

Equipment List:
Aquatop Recife Eco 24g
AI Prime w/ Flex Arm
2x Hygger Mini Wavemakers
Eheim Compact ON 1000 Return Pump
Jager 75W Heater
Innovatie Marine Helio Heater Controller
