Started reefing for the first time at 33 years old in Sept 2019, a dream project in the making since 2008.

Hi everyone,

I started my tank back in September 2019 and it's been a heck of a ride. I travel a lot for business so I needed something that could be managed remotely with some redundancy built in.

I had one major event this winter (I'm in Montréal), 31 hours power outage with outside temperatures around -12 celcius. Needless to say I had to run and go buy an inverter generator to get the tank heater running again, Also, I never used my wood stove before but I was really happy to have one then lol...

Anyway, here's a couple pics of my setup, I'm really happy so far but at this moment I have some concerns around my GFO usage, algae management, feeding habits and coral growth. I'm also having difficulty balancing out my two part solutions so that the calcium stop sky rocketing in the 600+ range even with equal part dosing.
