<re-posting to create a BUILD thread> Sorry for the duplicate
Hi friends! Creating a build thread. I currently have a 9 month Reefer G1 9 month old RedSea. It's on our middle floor and somehow talked the wife into an upgrade. Bought a WB 180.5 and will be going into the basement. Overall, I had one brown jelly episode with this tank for letting my params get out of wack, it was my fault. But it's been overall really well taken with algae in the display tank. I run an AI Fuge in the sump and does a good job with nuisance algae.
The plan is to close this tank down 2 months after I get sand in the new tank going. The live rock transfer in this should be more than enough to jump start and avoid a full cycle plan.
CaribSea liverock (dry) about 60 lbs worth
RedSea skimmer 300
Filter socks x 2
RedSea wavemaker 25 (enough flow for this tank)
1x Anthias Lyretail
1x Blue Hippo
2 x clown
1 x six line wrasse
1 x pintail wrasse
1 x scopas tang
All get along great thankfully
Things I want in the new tank - RedSea Reefmat 1200 to avoid sock changes on the 3/4th day all the time. Add another Wavemaker but larger version.
I have 6 weeks until I want sand in the new tank, so I'm going aquascape the new area and keep existing layout when I transfer. That'll be good for avoiding a cycle. That way, I'll cure and cycle the new scaped rock in a bin for a month just to kickstart bacteria biome ahead of time.
Here we go!!
