    54 rr corner reef

    Been out of the hobby for a few years while moving around. Finally have a chance to get back at it!

    Ordered a rr54g corner tank
    Built a custome sump/ fudge out of acrylic to maximize water volume with the limited corner stand space.

    Will be running a reef octopus classic 150 int protein skimmer
    Marine dct-4000 return pump
    Hydra 26hd led lights

    Have a 600gph koralia power head to start with
    And a rodi system

    pictures coming !!

    Crazy how much has changed in the few years I've been away from the hobby. It's almost like relearning everything !

    Deep sand bed in my diy sump. Fiji sand and a small bag of "live sand" from pet smart in the dt
    About 40 lbs of dry rock in the tank. Saturday heading to the lfs for a few chunks of lr and rubble lr for the sump get the cycle under way.

    3 days in and the fun starts discovering aiptasia. boiled up some water eating for it to cool a tad and dipping the corners of the rock in hopefully kill them off. can't wait to add peppermint shrimp once cycle is complete.

    Added a aqua medic ato. Epic fail. Already overfilling to the back up shut off switch. Should have paid the extra and got a tunze

    Make sure you aren't getting a siphon on the ATO line before writing it off.

    the feed line is at the rim of the sump and pours in, so no siphon.
