Hello Nano Reefers, been in the hobby off and on since 2004...but due to military service I haven't been able to keep a reef going for more than a few years at a time. On a positive note, this has allowed me to start up several tanks and learn as much as possible, especially from my mistakes. Throughout the years I've browsed several the of reefing community sites, but never created a profile or interacted with folks. I decided it was time to finally create a profile and start this journal in an effort to document my tank's progress over the next couple of years. I'll be able to retire in about 18 months and would like to eventually start a large reef in the 200 gallon range. My desire to start this current tank was to begin building my coral collection in order to transfer them to the larger system upon retirement. My plan was to keep it as simple as possible, reuse the equipment I had on hand and see if I could successfully grow SPS corals in this "smaller" system. Got the tank wet and started the cycle in January 2018. * Upgraded to a Red Sea Reefer XL425 - Sep 2019 Parameters: Temp: 77.8 Salinity: 1.025 Calcium: 395 - 415 Alkalinity: 7.5 - 8.0 Magnesium: 1260 Nitrate: 20 ppm Phosphate: .03 Equipment: Aquarium - Red Sea Reefer XL425 Return Pump - Simplicity 120DC Flow - 2x Nero 5, 2x Icecap Gyre 4K Lights - 3x Radion XR15 w/ diffusers & Aquatic Life T5 w/ 2x blue plus & 2x coral plus bulbs Dosing Pump - ATI 6 channel Skimmer - Simplicity 240DC Heater - Eheim Jager 250w x2 Controller - Neptune Apex EL Filtration: Skimmer Filter Socks Carbon (occasionally) GFO (sparingly) 85 lbs Marco & Reef Cleaners Rock Dosing: ESV Calcium and Alkalinity Brightwell Magnesium Acropower Stability (on occasion) Livestock: Fish: Wyoming White Clownfish Six Line Wrasse Falco Hawkfish Scribbled Rabbitfish Captive Bred Yellow Tang Captive Bred Rolland's Damsel x3 Corals: Jack O Lantern Leptosaris Green Leptosaris Mr. Freeze Leptosaris Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Burning Banana Stylocoenela LA Lakers Scroll Coral ORA Purple Stylophora Green Stylophora Birds of Paradise Seriatopora Sunset Montipora Slow Burn Montipora Red Montipora Cap Seasons Greetings Montipora Cap Rainbow Montipora Mystic Sunset Montipora Orange Montipora Digitata Green Montipora Digitata German Blue Polyp Montipora Digitata Jedi Mindtrick Montipora Tubb's Stellata Montipora Green Goblin Anacropora JF TNT Anacropora Cali Tort Acro GARF Bonsai Acro ORA Frogskin Acro ORA Pearlberry Acro Bali Green Slimer Acro Miyagi Tort Acro ORA Red Planet Acro JF Coolers Champagne Acro JF Fox Flame Acro Pink Lemonade Acro ASL Red Robin Acro JRC Great Unknown Acro JRC Oscar the Grouch Acro JKR Apocalypse Now Acro FHC Kryptonic Acro Blueberry Limeade Tenuis Acro RRC Pink Cadillac Acro TCK Orange Milli Acro TCK Pikachu Acro TCK Rainbow Acro TCK Molten Core Acro TCK Pink Bear Acro Sanjay's Leprechaun Beard Acro ARC Fireworks Acro CC Firewalker Milli Acro WWC Lil' Red Ferrari Acro WWC Yellow Tips Acro Katropora - Acropora Subulata Thanks for looking, Andre Nuvo 30l - 2018 Red Sea Reefer XL425 - 2020
