Other question do you still have the 3 smaller 20g tanks for sale? You had them on a post earlier as - clean out time?

It has been a slow and steady process, but today with parameters in check, we finally begin to rebuild.  The first new stock has been added to the aquarium.

Additional rock work added. and the new stock:
(x2) Ocellaris clowns
(x1) Yellow Tang
(x1) Sailfin Tang
(x1) Cleaner wrasse
(x1) Melanurus wrasse

and the indestructible yellow watchman is still lord over the tank.  ;D

What an interesting week!

Big shout out to Reeferntraining.  I caught up with him to pick up the laser, to address a few apistasia growths, and he set me up with a hand full of frags to populate the new display.

Scrambled eggs, fire and ice, WWC Bizzaro Cyphestrea, and some BamBams.


Then turned around and answered a call form a friend, of a friend, of a friend, of a fried to rescue a 75g reef setup.  Now this thing went three years with little more than a water top-off and the occasional feeding. Was filled with all I can describe as an apistasia forest (seriously, they are 3-4" tall and 1-2" heads), but i have now brought in a 3-stripe damsel and a hand full of corals currently sitting in quarantine.  not to mention the tank, lights, and random equipment.


I just couldn't see this guy waste aways in a basement...

Well she still needs a little cleaning up, but we are all installed and running. I even found a new use for that samsung tablet that Verizon suckered me into buying years ago!

Another quick DIY project in an effort to get the DOS up and running.  I was not a fan of the relatively small volume that the retail reservoirs offered, so opted to utilize the wasted space under the sump stand.

The base containers are 14 liter steralite containers from the dollar store. I added in a 1/4" push connector for the feed line and a 1/4" grommet for an vacuum release. After that, I added a shelf with a 5 degree angle underneath the sump stand and all was good to go.  The angled shelf is to combat that large surface area and allow the reservoir to run as close to empty as possible.  I may add in a couple of apex optic sensors later down the line to let me know when the reservoirs are getting low. I figured $50 for a pair of optics later on is better than $200 for the shiny Neptune acrylic DDR and a measly 4 liter capacity.
