I like it (I have no other choice really). It's doing what it's designed to do. I'm running seachem's seagel. But thinking about adding PO4X4 to the mix. And also adding another reactor for bio pellets...

lol I took another FTS earlier today but haven't had a chance to upload it. I don't recommend getting another tank dude. Unless you decide to only put simple corals in one and focus more on another. Either way it'll be hard to maintain both equally unless they were connected to one main sump :)

How did I miss this?! Looks great!

 

How do you like your doser, by the way? Worth the extra cost over a Bubble Magus one?

The 16 would be for my sons room and would be all easy to maintain stuff. No light upgrades or anything. My wife said she would be willing to maintain a tank in his room, she used to have her own tank but since he was born she hasn't been very involved and I think she misses it. I totally agree though, the 30 is my main focus.

It was buried. Lol THANKS! :)

 

I love the vertex doser. I've got the stepper motors so I can super fine tune the dosings. The setup menu is easy and intuitive. As with most equiptment in this hobby, you get what you pay for :)

Then can I suggest a ricordea garden with one or three fishes? I just pictured a single rock in the middle with a garden of rics around it. Simple and very low maintenance!

-Ecoxotic Panorama pro x2

-Aqua C Remora

-JbJ ATO

-Vertex Doser (x2 Vertex Container)

-Apex brain

 

Just going to stick everything from the 5 gallon in except replace the substrate with special grade sand to handle the high flow required for sps.

 

I wish I could get my DREAM TANK right away but this is better than letting my anthias suffer in a TINY tank.
