Hello Everyone, I have been thinking about doing this for awhile. The reason I haven't done it yet is because I wasn't sure how this tank is going to turn out and how long this tank is going to last. This is my second tank and the first tank failed very bad and very fast. I didn't like how it turned out and it only lasted 6 - 8 months. So, I was worry that this tank might end up in similar situation. Around this time last year, I decided to give it a second shot when I saw someone was selling 55 gallon shallow square tank with equipment. I told my gf that i was gonna build fresh water tank ( Iwagumi ) but I knew it wanted a reef tank ;P. Don't tell her please hehe I am happy with how current tank is maturing but I still have a lot of things to learn/improve in growing coral. My plan is to have SPS dominate tank and hopefully I will get there one day. Before I start, I want to tank everyone from this forum. Joining Bareef is one of the right decision that I made. My current setup 55g shallow tank ( 30x 30x 15 ) 30g refugium/anemone tank 30g sump BRS GFO reactor SWC 160 skimmer Reefbreeders LED changed the layout ( thanks to @Newjack ) Apex This is how I setup my tank last year around this time. I was using Metal Halide and 4 T5 back then. Here are the fish that I started out with. I was lucky that I found Matt who sell fish in San Jose. He QT most of the fish so I don't have to worry about ending up with ich or diseases. Since I live in an apartment, I only have limited amount of space.
