    I introduced myself in the Welcome section at the beginning of the year when I restarted my tank. I wanted to share more about my set up which was the same one I had in San Diego.

    I have a red sea E170, all in one without a sump. It is upgradable to add a sump down the road if needed. Red sea sells a kit that makes it easy to do. Stock skimmer is in back along with media basket and return pump.

    It came with a AI Hydra HD plenty of light for my mixed reef.

    MP10 for flow.

    Tunze ATO and 7 gallon reservoir with mix kalk mixed with RO/DI water.

    I run carbon and phosguard, and do a weekly 15% water change.


    LIVESTOCK
    Clownfish pair
    Flame angel
    Starcki damsel
    Pinkbar goby and randall shrimp pair
    2 cleaner shrimp
    Done with adding fish

    Mainly LPS, softies, 2 baby RBTAs, and some beginner SPS.

    As you can see been busy these past 3 months. The best part is I've met many cool and generous members. I definitely plan pay it forward when my tank matures.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks. I will have more room to the right soon. The acan next to red one will be donated to the raffle on Saturday.

    Tank has been doing well except for a couple of things. The clown pair I got at the raffle started fighting but has calmed down in the past few days. I also have been battling cyno for about a month. More water changes and added a reactor for the phosguard. It's much better now I think the worst is over.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
