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
