I picked this bad boi up for a whopping $25! Had calcium all over so needed a good scrub. Bought a nice entertainment center, restructured it a little to make sure it can hold weight and custom made light hanger built from local reefer. The Goods: IM Nuvo 40 Stock media basket with filter pads, carbon, Purigen, and a mini refugium with chaeto IM AQUA Gadget 2-1 Chaetomax LED IM MightyJet 538gph w/ 1x Spin Stream IM Medium Size Nuvo Skimmer AI Nero 5 EcoTech MP10 Aquatic Life T5 Hybrid with 4x Nano Box V3 Arrays controlled w/Bluefish w/ 2x Giesemann Super Actinic T5HO Tunze Nano ATO ATO Reservoir 6g Soy Sauce Bucket 300 Watt Ceramic Heater Externally Controlled w/Finnix Thermostat The Wet Goods: Lighting Maroon Clown Pair & Rainbow BTA Yellow Tail Goby & Pistol Tiger Shrimp Pair Flame Angel Purple Dottyback Cleaner Shrimp Peppermint Shrimp Mix Reef (lobos, scolys, acans, favias, zoas, palys, sticks, pavonas, torches, shrooms) CUC (trochus, turbos, nerites, red/blue legged hermits)

Follow the tank on Instagram here! Status: Tank is bought, rock, rubble and bio-brick are cycling in a bin with a mature seed rock. I will be moving to Pittsburgh in mid-August and will get the tank wet right away (and rock being cycled will let me add corals pretty quickly). I started the build thread because I got antsy waiting to start the journal, frankly haha. I guess Nanoreef will get the early content before I start posting to R2R/RC/IG. Feel free to ask questions, talk casually or check out my past/other tanks in the meantime. I'm really excited to have a high-end/serious SPS tank again (after cutting my custom Zeovit tank short to go to college)! Premium Aquatics really hooked me up with nice tonga branches. I think the Tropic Eden rock is well worth the money and likely an underrated product! Inspiring tanks...
The Aqamai I've had for about 4 or 5 months so far doesn't seem to be the best fit for my tank, I love the customizability but the flow is too intense and too-narrow for my tank, it also has an excessive min and max GPH for my setup, I'm really interested in trying out the re-branded coralbox RN-1 (Reefbreeder RP-M) as the less-intense, wider-flow pattern sounds perfect.
So, I acquired this light through a trade. Prior to this light, I've never had something so adjustable, user customizable or powerful. Quiet frankly, it scares me a bit. It has a setting for lps and sps. My concern is, I've never ran a tank that simulates real sunlight or a sunlight schedule. Ive always ran my reefs with 6-8 hours of light. Now with nearly 13 hours of light. I'm concerned about nusance algae issues. Also, I've cut all the settings by 60-70% for acclimation.
