Hi everyone, tanks roughly 4 months old now.
20 long diy sump
Jeboa 4k pump
2 460ghp powerheads
Split line lock return
3/4 drains and 1/2 return
I'm upgrading to 1in drains pretty soon
Milwaukee ph monitor
Diy mesh lid
Viparspectra 300w, 150w black box, 4lamp t5 HO. Currently using black box because LPS dominant.
2 old heaters
Been running for about 4/5 months and been doing pretty good but found my t5s not enough power (24in over a 36in) then got the Viparspectra 300w which was great but found that it is too much power and no low par areas in my tank unless under a rock. Got a few freebies from Hayes and the blk box and Milwaukee was one of many.i did spend $200 on cleaning out his hammers and other shut down corals.so I'm running that for now.i have it plugged into 2 different smart plugs for timing schedule. Blues all day and white lights as a spike from 1pm to 3pm. I also have a uv light I took off my green machine and just mounted it in sump its working great.i need a skimmer next.or ill be upgrading bigger either a 75 or 125. Still checking my options and seeing alot of used stuff just havent pulled trigger yet.i got into the hobby because I used to spend every other day on the ocean when I lived in Socal,but been living here in Vancouver for the past 4yrs so I brought the ocean to me instead .I have my breeder and 2 nanos.
2 reg clowns,scopas tang,6line,cleaner shrimp,2 peppermints. Random snails lost count.i try to buy snails everytime I buy fish or corals to make up for a CUC for what I've gotten currently making phytoplankton also to cover some of the costs and feed my stock. I love SPS but I need to upgrade equipment like a doser,skimmer,socks to help with stability. Manually keeping it stable is pretty hard by hand without spikes.also need to setup a auto top off. Well thats about everything. My nanos are kinda species specific, 1 is my nem tank and overflow corals, 2 clowns,3 nems rainbow blk widow morph,rainbow purple tip,and a rainbow pink tip.all bubble up.and the other nano has 2 blue damsels,and a bunch of random zoas.thx for your time ,here's some pictures...
