Coming along nicely.

Very fast progress, it's amazing how quickly one can cycle a tank and get it filled with corals and fish nowadays.

Thanks it has been nonstop work...

I used Dr. Tims bacteria and half of the rock is 4 year old rock, so that quickly got things running.

Tanks is doing good. This is definitely my favorite tank out of all the setups I have had in the past 12 years.

Always looking for more corals to stock this reef, if you have anything nice in the Inland empire let me know .

Thanks for checking out my reef, happy reefing !

Looking good! The stand appears to be vastly improved over the original designs.

Thanks !

Yeah I have zero concerns with the way this stand is built. Anything can happen but It looks like a slim chance with the way they build the stand with bracing and a metal top sheet to support the glass.

Dang! Your tank is looking nice and filled already. And awesome tangs! You definitely put in some work to get it this well dialed in. It's awesome when you can start a tank and have no issues like dinos or nuisance algae. I think that established live rock was the key.

Haha, man, I'm starting to realize how slow I am at getting frags in my tank. Definitely post some photos when you get them in.
Maybe I am just impatient. Lol

I started with some frags from local reefers and they are all laying a base, branching small numbs and keeping color. I figured it was time to get a nice order of sps now.

Of side note, I might trade these Kessil 500s for radion XR 30s if anyone is interested…?
I like the color and shimmer but I cannot get them to link to my internet and over hand turning Color and power inputs .

Tank is on cruise control for now .

I am getting married in Oahu in two weeks then going to Bali for 8 days . We will see how the tank is doing after that trip. I am very nervous to leave the tank but hope for the best .

Any things to check/consider before leaving ?

You don't have anyone to check on the tank while you are out? If you have a trusted reefer nearby, might want to get their info and ask if they can help.

Might want to install a camera to keep any eye out on your tank. I'm considering getting one when I have to travel in the summer. Definitely, empty your skimmer/skimmate locker. Refill everything (ATO, cal/alk, etc.).

Have fun in Hawaii and Bali! And congrats on the wedding.

I suggest any or all of the following for a prolonged absence:
  • Make sure your ATO reservoir and dosing containers are topped up and running correctly;
  • If feasible, have a trusted reefer check on it a couple times (and teed up to address emergencies) - otherwise, have a neighbor check on it daily and feed the fish;
  • If you don't have redundant heaters, circulation pumps and/or return pumps in place, consider putting them in place before departing so you can toggle on a replacement if needed (assuming you have remote control);
  • If you have a home camera, train one on the tank so you can check in on it visually from time to time.
Have a good time in Hawaii and Bali, that's awesome! Congrats!

Tank did well during my vacation. Lost 3 sps frags , likely due to a nem walking across the tank. They normally stay put but I guess that’s the risk you take with nems.

The reefs in Bali got me pumped to continue to build this tank. I picked up a lot of corals at todays show . Things are settling in nicely .
