I went ahead and decided to take advantage of Marine depot’s JBJ chiller sale abs bought a 1/4 hp chiller. This will allow me to turn off the AC in my apt when I’m not there, hopefully saving me money over time

I thought I would give an update. 
 

I am pretty disappointed in the quality control and order fulfillment at Fijicube. The tank is beautiful and the stand (if I were able to finish building it) also looks good, but they sent the stand (flat pack) out with the wrong hardware kit (I’m 8 post and locks short), as well as with no Instructions. 
 

they also failed to send out the plumbing kit that I ordered. 
 

hopefully they can resolve these issues quickly…

The missing supplies arrived Saturday. I got the stand complete (minus doors) and the hard plumbing planned out. Now I just need to glue the plumbing….

I really like that they went with the floss tray design, having dealt with socks for the first time in my decade of reefing, what a PITA.

I need to update the steps, but the move is done, I still need to review  the bttm and set up the ancillary stuff, but everything is moved over. I also need to out the doors on it. I also ordered another Reefi Uno, as my partner thought having a Reefi duo extreme in the middle would be ugly
