      Freshsalth2os 400g+ build

      Its not the beginning, but heres my restart to the dormant 200 gallon. First, let me start by saying Ive had this tank for many years. A little bit about the tank. The tank itself is a eurobraced 1 starfire tank. For flow I chose 2 mp40 to upgrade the old non working jebaos. Lighting.. tossed the exotica cannons and got a hybrid t5 fixture with three xr15 g5 and (4)60 t5 blue plus. Return needed upgrading so in goes Varios 8. As for filtration and water clarity. I had a Your Choice DC-5 skimmer (luck I had a new impeller). A 40w uv sterilizer and a rowaphos reactor all scored from a fellow reefers sale I got the varios 4 pump on the uv sterilizer and dual 300w heaters and an apex controller. All thats dialed in now. Ish. Heres a pic of it getting wet in 2017


      Heres a picture right before for I started updating equipment and redoing aquascape. oct 2022



      Story time.

      So the tanks been running in the garage for the last four years with a ton of live rock, a refugium an eel and a mono. No heater and topping off with tap. So skip the cycle do 2 50% water changes and start the aquascape. Heres what I have so far for the middle of the scape I will update more as I go.






      Ill be working on updating my sump system as its pretty old method huge fuge and cryptic zone Very dirty still..




      For corals Ive added a bunch since the restart already heres a few pictures of the first additions.

      Are you going to keep the invicible eel and his side kick the Mono? Its going to be nice once you have dialed it all in.. Can't wait to see the final version.

      unfortunately the eels gotta go and the mono too probably trade them for coral or pif
