Finnex 30...running an aqua c remora nano, a chaeto fuge, an MP10, and a BRS GFO reactor..
Thanks for all the assistance and advice....especially Phixion, Ken at Oceanreeflections...and thanks to BigByrd for his amazing tank, which inspired the rockwork and idea for a 30g finnex.
EDIT: Tank has been taken down...Starting a super slow build, softie-centric Reefer 170 w/ Nanobox Duo M in early 2017.
Lessons learned from this tank: Buy a refractometer. Low to medium flow. Really watch and lock down alkalinity. Not appreciating alkalinity swings bit me in the rear. I watched Alk, but was content to let it swing...didn't understand how that could impact LPS.
Other lessons: No coraline algae on back walls. Be very paranoid about scratching your glass. No acans, no scolys, no open brain corals...others have luck, I don't. No ugly plain palys that overgrow everything. Know when to stop adding corals. Don't use salt with a low alk. Dip all corals. Too much flow with LPS is bad. If at all possible, have a sump vs an AIO. Austin Aqua Farms and Bulk Reef Supply are the best things going...
