Just picked up a 40 nuvo a week or so ago. Just picking up a couple final equipment pieces and I can get started. Super inspired by your build

Wow! That means a ton to me, truly! 

 

What pieces do you need? I guess I'll check your journal out!

Nope. I would never. I don't trust myself enough with sticks. The most expensive stick I bought was $75 and it made me sooooo nervous. Still does... 

 

Let's just say imma name it King Midas...

haven't started a journal yet. Im still deciding on a heater (cobalt neotherms have a bad rep, and are hard to find, but people are hating on eheim jaegers as well. Heaters are lose loser it seems.) and whether or not i need a icecap 1k gyre, and thats about it.

I don't like the gyres. They'resuch a large piece of equipment to have in the DT and I hear they need regular cleaning. I highly recommend the Nero and I've owned jaebo, mp40s, Tunze, current USA you name the powerhead. Nero is by far my favorite. 

 

As for heaters I just picked a big external controlled one on Amazon with good reviews. Heaters are heaters. The technology behind them is old and standard so you can't really mess up with a heater haha.

Honestly this is sort of a poopy pic.

 

I rescaped and remounted King Midas so when he's less pissed off and the tank fixes itself I will get some MUCH better pics.

Really excited about my rescape. I'll hopefully get pics tonight. 

 

This is by far my best attempt at keeping coral and healthy fish. Been doing saltwater since I was 10 and never had it quite right until now so I'm stoked!

 

Especially since I'm in a part of my life I can splurge on coral it's been fun 😊

 

Updates to come!

Loving it! I am using two Actinic bulbs so not much growth expected but I LOVE the POP it gives for the coral. I rely on the 4x pucks for the main lighting. My Royal Blues are at like 89%, Cyan at 30%, Violate at 55%, and White at like 8% lol.
