Some of you guys may recognize my old build thread, and remember that I was contemplating changing my system to a Reefer 170. I ended up going a different route, settling on a Ultum Nature Systems 60U. I've spent the past few weeks assembling a stand, building a new sump (with a frag compartment), and figuring out how to incorporate a doser system into my tank. I unfortunately suffered some coral STN/die-off after a huge bacterial bloom halfway into working on my new stand, but fortunately the bloom resolved and the corals are slowly recovering. Accidentally broke Mame, picked up ELOS MIDI as current tank. Stand: (45Lx24Wx30H) Assembled from 2x Ikea SEKTION Cabinets (Veddinge White) with Birch-White Washed Butcher Block Tank: Ultum Nature System 60U (~24x14x14) with frosted background ELOS MIDI Flow: -2 MP10s on Long Pulse Mode Sump: Repurposed Mr. Aqua 11.4G -Ice-Cap K250 -Sicce 2.0 Return Pump -Innovative Marine Desktop Reactor (80ml Carbon) -Tunze Nano ATO Frag Tank: De-rimmed 6Gallon Fluval Edge -El cheapo return pump and powerhead Lighting: -ATI 4x24W Powermodule: 2C+, 1B+, 1 Giesemann Super Purple -Nanobox Duo for Frag Tank (100% Blue, 33% White) -Nanobox Mini for Chaeto/Refugium (100% Blue, 30% White) Dosing: -Marine Magic Doser CoralBox Wifi Doser with Aquaforest Component 1, 2, 3 Tank: Reefer 170 Sump: Reefer 170 Sump Flow: 4 MP10s Filtration: Ice-Cap K250 Skimmer: Only on 8 hours a day Skimz Chaeto Reactor MBR127: 12 hour photoperiod Purigen Bag - Passive Filtration Live Rock Seachem Matrix Rubble Lighting: Nanobox-ATI Hybrid. 4x T5 bulbs and 4x NBR Arrays Doser: Coralbox Wifi 4 Headed Doser with the following liquids dosed throughout the day ATI Essentials Pro 1 & 2 EasyBooster Phyto NYOS Goldpods and NYOS Chromys Maintenance: Thanks to the NYOS Goldpods and NYOS Chromys, I no longer manually feed my tank. I've been autofeeding the tank with calanus and mysis for the past 3 months without issue. My main maintenance is to clean off the glass (every 1-2 days), empty the skimmer cup (every 1-2 weeks) and trim chaeto (every month or so). Otherwise, I just have to refill the ATO and replace the dosing solutions when they get low. The system is super low maintenance. Without further ado, here are the pictures: 5/11/2019 3/13/2018 1/21/2018 11/25/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 11/8/2017 10/29/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 10/24/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 10/15/2017 IMG_1284 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr IMG_1283 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr IMG_1288 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr
