Tank: Aqueon 40BR
Stand and Canopy: Unknown (I customed the canopy for the LED fixture)
Light: Reeffiltration 120w 18k LED light fixture with custom hanging bracket.
Sand: Reef on the Rocks Aragonite
Rock: Reef on the Rocks Aragolite Box Kit (www.reefontherocks.com)
Water Movement: 2 X Vortech MP10 (One has a custom battery back up) (One on long pulse mode the other on short)
Filtration: Aerofuge (Medium, it has the Aeroforce skimmer included) with custom surface skimmer box.
Temp control: Ranco dual monitor using a heating element and small 6'' verticle Lasko fan.
Fish Feeder: Hydor EKOMIXO plus Tom Aquatics Floating Feeding Station (modded)
ATO: Tunze osmolator pump used in custom set up. (I use Kalkwasser)
Daily: Check the tank, the feeder doles out pellet food for the fish.
Weekly: 5G water-change, mag-float the tank, Iodide (Mainly to help with potential bleaching as the LEDs are brand new), Tech M, Reef Pearls.
Monthly: Check Aerofuge to see if it needs cleaning, Vortech cleaning, scrape tank, check light fixture, frag down over-grown corals like xenia or anthelia.
Some new things starting soon or just completed:
- I am going to start cleaning out the sand bed as I believe my earlier mistakes in feeding, etc has led to it being over saturated with "funk". I've created two tools to help me with this, I'll shoot pictures when I do my first round tomorrow, while kiddo is in school.
- I am pretty sure I am done with the tank for now, in terms of corals. I don't really have space anymore to give, I prefer for the corals to grow out the rest of the space. The last addition to the tank was just a few days ago (Not pictures in the video), supposedly a browned out purple cap I've been looking for. I split it into three pieces in the hopes of doing what I did with the orange cap on the left of the tank. We'll see!
- I am planning on getting Neptune's Aquacontroller Apex Jr. soon. It would literally cut out a ton of my equipment, but more importantly, it has the ability to alert me when something is wrong via text or email. I love that idea!
My reef nook is literally on the other side of the wall from the reef tank. Inside the cabinet sits my controls, and behind the curtain all my other reef stuff.:

Hope you enjoy!
