Total took me around 2weeks to get everything remove..and not to mention the amount of water used!!

Chorine powder run for 7 days, drain all water out.. and fill in FW and run for 2 days..drain everything out and fill in FW again this time with anti chorine and run for 3 days to remove the chorine..

After that drain out 50% and total up with FW and salt.. to get it running..

This time round I'm running on LED..

After reading v gd review and see others reefers getting gd results with radion G4, decided to take the plunge ..

Got 2 X xr15 and 2 X xr30 for the main tank. Also using 2xt5 to shine down on the side.. which have shadow.. Sump tank using 4 blocks of marine pure and alot of  mixture of bacterial kings media and marine pure balls..

Also going for bare bottom this time round, for easy maintenance..

Some update of the corals after using Red sea abcd for around 4 months.. I was pleased with the colours and growth rate.. and was away for 2mths and all corals doing gd with no casualties... And thanks to my 2 buddies for going me clear off the algea that was growing too long on the tank..
