So, I wanted to start a thread on NR about my first ever plunge into saltwater reefing. Like many others before me, I thought this would be a good way to maintain the quality of my tank since I'll have an endless supply of suggestions and critiques on here; plus, the motiviation to keep it looking presentable (haha). I've got a 29g standard display tank with a 10g sump/refuge on a homemade 4x4 stand (it's overkill, but I don't trust physics ) that has been running since 3/31/12.
Firefish - "Sparticus"
Emerald Crab- "Murphy"
Florida Cerith Snails
Dwarf Cerith Snails
Equipment (This is with an "intern's salary" ):
-29g standard Petco tank (Display)
-10g standard Petco tank (Sump/Refugium)
-DIY overflow box (Inspired by melcolm's "Cheap Overflow")
-2x Marineland 400 pumps (For flow)
-Rio 2100+ return pump
-Aqueon Pro (or Elite, whatever) 100w Heater (Propably isn't going to be used untill it gets cold again)

-35lbs Dry Rock
-20lbs Dry Sand (Nature's Ocean)
-10lbs Live Rock from LFS
-What seems like a small fortune of the nitty gritty stuff
FTS - 4/7/2012
Sump - 4/7/2012
Yes, I know that cheap filter sock isn't going to do much, but it is catching all the dang down feathers from my bed untill I come up with a better solution!
