    I bought a pile of gear. Unfortunately, I didn't know about the kickbacks from Marine Depot to Buckeye Reef when I placed my orders. I'll definitely use the link from now on though! I picked up 3 Noopsyche K7 Pro II LED fixtures off of R2R. I had just read a well-written and thorough review on R2R about them when they popped up. Just so happens it was @crimsonvice who wrote it! Thanks for being so thorough! I was lucky enough to snag them for $325 shipped. I bought the arms for them from The Coral Reef TN for $36/pc. https://www.ebay.com/usr/thecoralreeftn. Other gear: - Reef Octopus Varios 6 (probably too much pump, but I'm making a manifold) - Reef Octopus Classic 150-INT - (2x) VorTech MP10 - Marine Depot KleanWater 4-Stage Economy RO/DI System - 100 GPD - HMO 200 Watt Titanium Heater with Digital Controller - Finnex - Tunze Osmolator Universal 3155 ATO - AquaMaxx Fluidized GFO and Carbon Filter Media Reactor - XS - Titanium Ground Probe I bought a Seneye that I'll probably return. I told myself I didn't need an Apex, but then I talked myself into it. So I'll probably send the Seneye back. So now I have: - Seneye Reef Monitor - API Saltwater Liquid Master Test Kit - API Reef Master Test Kit - Neptune Systems APEX Wi-Fi Controller System - Neptune Systems Magnetic Probe Rack (MPR) - Neptune Systems DOS (for auto water change)

    For sure! I'm thinking we get with them and schedule a group meet or something. Maybe in a month or two, to give them some time to settle in.

    For those of you that don’t know what FTS Friday is. This is a weekly thread meant for everyone to share a “Full Tank Shot” of your aquarium.   Don’t be shy. We love to see photos of everyone’s tank or tanks.

    Well, I've paid my deposit to the reef gods and they provided much gear. This thread will chronicle my first tank in 12 years. Things have come a long way since then! Current FTS (leak test): I picked up a Red Sea Reefer 250 on eBay for $500. I had to drive a couple hours to pick it up, but no biggie. It's kiddo approved! Both of my kids are super excited to start a tank after a recent trip to Mote Marine over Spring Break. All the stuff is there. The plumbing is in good shape, and everything is super clean. The cabinet has some screw holes, but no biggie. This thing is a beast compared to any tank I've had. My last reef tank was a 20L with no sump. I've had freshwater aquariums in the past, but nothing over 30 gallons. I've also never had a rimless aquarium. It was one of the must-haves when I was obsessing over which tank to buy. The stand tore down easily for transport, and somehow I squeezed everything into my Subaru Impreza! It's going to be awhile before I actually get saltwater, rock, and sand in it, but there's still plenty to do in the meantime.

    not trying to get off topic but installing a gate valve on your drain would help

    Overflow

    Great question. Will be following along. I have the durso and get some gurgling. Nothing crazy, except when bedroom is 10 feet away and all is quite.

    Overflow

    probably the shadow overflow. decent reviews, very low profile. A little expensive but seems pretty solid. I prefer the in tank overflows that are drilled on the bottom but thats just my preference. seems like you cant go wrong with the fiji cube overflow as well. aesthetics are good as well

    And that brings us current! Updates might be a bit slow for the next few weeks. I emptied the tank in preparation for some other projects going on in that room. We're going to build some built-in bookshelves on either side of the aquarium and that will require us using a paint sprayer. I want to get that all taken care of before getting it wet with saltwater. I also ordered 80 pounds of dry rock from https://floridadryrock.com . Can't beat the price, and a few people highly recommended it. I just got confirmation that it's shipping today (super fast turnaround). I also purchased 40lbs of live AragAlive sand over the weekend. I'll update once the rock comes in and I start playing around with 'scape ideas

    Dry fit the plumbing for the manifold which will serve the Aquamax reactor and the ATO which I will be turning into a mini-refugium. I might stub out one more valve for a future addition. I would love to get a bigger sump with a proper refugium, but this will have to do for now. Hard-plumbing the return pump was way more of a pain than expected. I'll be changing the last few inches out for a flexible tube.

    Got the lights installed. The arms are good quality and they adjust easily to different heights or horizontal extensions. I am a tinkerer who loves to take things apart. I really wanted to see what the drivers and circuitry looked like to see if there was any chance of modifying them to take 1-10v. I'll figure that out later, but here are some pics of the internals: And the LED array up close

    yes, they stress much easier. however, being tank raised and grown would help alleviate that. Most tangs that are small are pale. when they are born they are translucent (i think)

    curious if anyone knows

    well....i guess the answer is no lol. i looked it up and algae spores are 25-100x smaller than bacteria. ranging from .004 microns to .10. oops read it wrong that is for viruses lol. i just read that alot of algae can be filtered out by 10 micron filtration

    The stupid thing is opening.... and never "fully" closed even when transferring..... but it looks very sad in comparison to the guy's tank I got it from! I am working a 16 hr, but will try to get pics of it when I get home if the lights aren't already off by then.

    Sump

    Bought a Trigger 39. Best compromise I could find in Price/size/features. I really like the removeable silt sock/ foam media thing. makes changing really easy My tank is only 106g so I should have plenty of volume. I will probably spend the saved cash on a used Kessil for a fuge light
