Afternoon to all of you reefers out there! I am excited to announce a new build in the works!Tthe plan has been modified and tinkered with in the past couple months, but some pieces are finally coming together to form what I am hoping to create which will be called "The Macro Shoreline"

The scape will be littered with real live rock and macro algae to create a representation of a more natural environment.

I show off the tank and light for this weeks upload on my YouTube channel and wanted to share it here for the documentation of my build thread! Feel free to join in on my adventure in a new style of reefing and exciting new natural build for my place!


Tank: UNS 5N
Light: Twinstar II 300 E

Can’t wait to see this tank finished! Gonna be a hot thread :)
Appreciate you! I am excited to get it started! Anyone ever get orders from KP Aquatics live rock before and/or anyone have suggestions for macros to add to the system?
