    It's been awhile since I last posted, but I wanted to give keeping a tank journal a try again. I broke down my 60G Mixed Media build awhile ago after struggling a bit with algae problems and a hood that I couldn't get good circulation in. Instead of giving up completely I decide that I wanted to get back to my nano roots where I've had my most success.

    Since I've had my eye on the new Red Sea Reefer series I thought that their "nano" size would be perfect for my reboot.

    Here's a basic rundown of my setup:

    Red Sea Reefer Nano (21G)
    Radion XR15W
    Vortech MP10w ES
    Waveline DC-2500HP
    Simplicity 120DC Protein Skimmer
    2 BRS 1.1ml Dosers
    Apex Controlled

    It's been up for just about 3 months and seems to be doing pretty well. Corals are still settling in, but so far so good. Here is a FTS from the other day...

    Why do you call this your last resort?

    Because I almost decided to breakdown and sell everything. Couldn't do it since I've grown quite attached to my fishes (and still love coral which I think is obvious from the number of pieces in my tank :p)

    Thanks guys!

    Ender, appreciate the offer, but I think after my frags from WWC live sale come in combined with my Battlecorals order this little cube is going to be packed to the gills (no pun intended).
