Brighton,
I started building the stand and setting this tank up on the 2th of September 2021. It got filled with water on the 5th and the first water test was on the 8th.
The Equipment I am using on this tank consists of :-

Red sea 90 led lights x 2
Red sea reef wave 25 pumps x 2
Red sea 4 pump dosing system
Tunze skimmer
Tunze Osmolator
TMC return pump
Rowaphos
Carbon (for later)
Bubble Magus mini 70 reactor x 2
TMC dosing vessels 1.5 litre x 3
TMC magnetic easi stir slightly modified to fit the cabinet

I used existing rock from my old reef tank which had been sitting around for the last 6 or 7 years dried out so I wasn't exactly sure what was going to happen once the water testing started.
Water parameters to follow along with some photos as I get the time.
Happy reefing everyone.

Andy.

Brighton,
Been away for a couple of days.
Well the latest water test was no surprise really it came out as:-

Temp 24C
S.G 1.024
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 2.8
Nitrate 50
Phosphate 0.2
pH 7.9
dKH 7.28
Calcium 446
Magnesium 1085

These readings are of the 19/09/21
Previous water tests had shown Ammonia, higher Nitrite, Nitrate and Phosphate, lower pH, dKH, Calcium and Magnesium. So everything is heading in the right direction.
