Hey all! So about 5 years ago, I was really active on Nano-Reef with my 40 Breeder chugging along. Then BAM! I got orders to Guam. Well, decided to sell everything but the tank and stand. Fast Forward to 2018 and I return the states. I started with a Fusion 20, knowing that I was going to be moving and wanted to wait. It was killing me. Bought a house in 2019, cracked the IM20 built a 20L AIO and ran that while I rebuilt the 40B! This reboot has proven to be much better with age! Anyhow, on to the good stuff. Equipment List: -Petco $1 a gallon 40 Breeder (bought in New Orleans while I was deployed for the BP oil spill!) -20L sump ($1 a gallon sale, late 2019 purchase) w/ Jax Racks Sump Kit -Glass-Holes 700 GPH overflow kit -Jebao DCT-4000 Return Pump -Jager 150W heater. -Eshopps Axiom x-120 skimmer -Vortech MP-40W (white box) -36" Aquaticlife Hybrid with 3 AI Primes (one non HD). 80/20 built light hanger. -Marco Rocks Sand. -35 lbs Dry shelf base rock - Apex Lite w/ one EB8 pH and Temp. - Tunze ATO - Self Built Stand. Planning an electronics cabinet.... as you can see, I need it. Tank got wet Feb 7, 2020. Just finished cycling.
Hello fine folks of the internet. Here I am yet again with ANOTHER build. I rashly decided to sell my 78g and 65g and upgrade to something 120g and up. I ended up buying a 150g blah blah blah long story short, I messed up. Rushed things, ended up tankless. After my fish sat in rubbermaid totes for about 3 months, something happened. I did a large water change and overnight ALL my fish died. This was a nightmare, I was distraught. I did realize the next day that my large Clarkii clownfish Big Mama survived. After debating on selling her for a while I decided to get her a home. That brings us to where we are now. A 40 gallon breeder. As some of you may now my last 40B won TOTM last October. I loved that tank and everything about it. That's how I landed back into a 40B. Things will be a bit different this time. I am taking my sweet sweet time setting it up and buying equipment that will last. Equipment List: Lighting: 2x Ecotech Radion XR30W Pro Flow: Sicce Syncra 3.0 Return and Ecotech MP10 Heater: 200w Jaeger Controller: Neptune Apex EL Skimmer: Nyos Quantum Overflow: Eshopps Eclipse Sump: Acrylic Sump ATO: Tunze Osmolator Rock/Sand: Caribsea LifeRock and Aragonite Livestock Plans: Other than Big Mama and her carpet anemone. I plan on stocking this tank solely with Montipora. No softies, no lps. ONLY Montipora. As far as fish go, I want a blue spot jawfish, something to sift the sand, and a bunch of damsels that can stand up to big mama. Ill attach some pictures today. I still have a lot of the equipment to buy. I plan on having water in the tank within the next 4-6 weeks. Happy Reefing, thanks for looking..
Hey guys has been awhile since I've posted any pics. The tank got wiped out last year when the hurricane came thru and we had no power for 11 days....this year...I have a generator! We will be upgrading to a larger tank this year, as everything is growing like a weed. My tank has no sump, just a hang on back protein skimmer. I do weekly water changes of 10 gallons with Fritz Reef Pro Mix. I dose once a week with Brightwell aquatics two part. That is it. My lights...cheap $99 black box LEDs from Amazon that I mostly balance towards the higher under of the spectrum ( 12-14k range)...and run more of the fuller spectrum only a few hours a week or if I take photos to balance out the light. Here are a few photos...sorry for the quality. Tomorrow is water change and maintenance day...and photos are from my cellphone
