I'm excited to announce my upgrade from a Biocube 16 gallon to the Nuvo EXT Lagoon 50 gallon. Tank:. Innovative Marine Nuvo EXT 50 Lagoon Sump: Trigger Saphire 26 Saltmix: Tropic Marin Pro @ 1.026 S.G. Aquascape:. CaribSea Liferock Sand: TropicEden Miniflakes Lighting:. Noopsyche K7 Pro II x 2 Powerheads: Coralbox RN-1 x 2 Heater: Finnex Titanium 300 Watt with ITC 306-A Controller Skimmer: Reef Octopus Classic 150SSS INT Return Pump: Sicce Syncra Silent 3.0 ATO: XP Aqua Duetto with Eshopps 5 gallon reservoir Chemical Filtration: Matrix Carbon Mechanical Filtration: Poly Filter The current plans for the tank include continuing the mixed reef theme from the Biocube and expanding on that theme in a larger body of water. It'll open up possibilities for additional fish and corals that I couldn't add to a smaller tank. This will be my tank of firsts. First sump, first ato, first large tank, first skimmer, first tank move, first time plumbing, etc. It's going to be a journey and I have a lot of new exciting stuff to learn along the way. I will document my journey so that hopefully others may learn from the countless mistakes that I'm about to make.

Hey everyone! My name is Matt, I live in beautiful Charleston, SC. This is my third build and the largest tank I’ve owned to date. I’ve been a fan of this forum since I started in this hobby in 2015 and felt like it was the best place to document my new build! So here we go. Picked up a rimless 50g SCA in August from a friend who was upsizing and finally got it up and running on 8/25/18. Wanted to go for a minimalist scape with some decent negative space for the corals to eventually grow into. I plan on doing a mixed reef with a decent amount of SPS and since I’m totally mesmerized by movement I’ll be loading up on Euphyllia. I feel like torches and hammers bring drama to an aquascape but also really like the contrast of encrusting corals like cyphastra and of course the colorful Acros branching all over.. With any luck and probably a ton of help from the NR community I’m hoping to make that vision a reality.
