Hahaha yeah guys. Since I opted out using a cr and implement a dosing system instead, wanted to get as much space as I can for sump. Hopefully my plan to corporate the dosing pump from the bomb shelter just behind the tank works well. If not, 5l containers it is.

Yeah. Hopefully can just make a hole big enough for 3 dosing tubes lor. If not, guessing a side cabinet. Oh well.

Finally have some time to head out and get some fishes. Tank was cycling for about 2 months.

Finally put the lights on, collected my frags from my previous tank, that was kept by a friend when I shifted.

Now can see a bit of colors and fish swimming.
Gonna do a slow one on stocking up this tank. Still need to hook up the dosing system 88b959db590080febee9ce20d8d05f3c.jpg

Had a restart to the tank due to a leak in plumbing and a velvet breakout as well..lost all fish except one. Sighs.


Anyway, tank is back up again and cycling.
Cycling process using dr Tim's ammonium chloride for fish less cycling. 2dadc16db51fba82a70266886628a5b3.jpg

Made some changes to some equipment.

Currently

Lighting
Aquatic life 4feet+2 hydras NON hd

Return pump
Maxaspect turbine duo 12k at 60%

Wavemaker
Xf350 combo, 1 per side, running ltc at 50%

Deltec sc2060 skimmer
Deltec reactor running AF carbon+po4 minus

American pinpoint PH monitor

Hs 90a for chiller, fed with a 1800l/hr, kept at 26 deg.

Fuge running chaeto 12 hours a day opposite light cycle of display.

Big3 are added via bubble magus bm t01 dosing pump, using AF balling method.

Never had any long term success with pure sps reef due to either tank disasters or albeit, personal ones. Hehe

Any inputs/recommendations for changes/scrutinizes are welcome for me to tinker on. a1d6b13baa5c8ffc30888406c1185d31.jpg

oh no, so sorry for the loss of your fishes and the leak.

would the 1/2 hp chiller be sufficient for a tank of that size ?

Takes about 40mins to chill. Off for about 2.5 hours.
Calculated the costs before using those digital timer plugs. Costs comes to about $35/mth. Something that I gotta live with as I dont want to do hacking if I 2wanna install a compressor.
