    DML08 115g V2

    So, after a 3 year hiatus Im back!! I kept most of my stuff after the last tank crash, just wanted to start a new thread.
    looking to go back to a whole lot SPS. now the good stuff.. anybody that whats to go through my last thread, here is the LINK

    Tank:LeeMar 48x30x18 Euro Braced tank, Center overflow.
    Sump: 40gB and a DIY ATS
    AC JR for control ( need to upgrade to Apex, but this will do for now)
    Lighting: ATI powermodule 8x54w T5
    Flow: 2- MP40w ES ( need to add 4 more)
    Skimmer: BubbleMagus 180CS (aquabee pump)
    Cal/Alk/Mag: 3 part dosed by Profilux SA Doser

    like I said, this will be a SPS dom tank, as for fish list we are still kicking some ideas around but I'll be looking to add quite a few angles this time around.
    good to be back Reef peeps!!

    Yay. Happy to see this tank thread.

    What return pump will be used on the tank?

    Also what sort of rocks? There are good artificial rocks available now. I used Real Reef Rocks on my new 48x24x18 and it looks good. No algae or pest issues.

    High Sahin! return pump is MJ utility 1385l/h pump, I will use this for tank cycling then switch to a Eheim 1262, which i have to order this weekend.
    as for the rocks I have Marco rocks that used last time, after my tank tear down I cooked the rock and threw them in a bin, i'm going to cook the rock again this weekend and get them ready to go back in..

    John ! whats up man!


    I got off a bit early today, headed over to neptunes and picked up new bulkheads, cleaning the inside/outside of my overflow box as we speak, gotta give the tank a good clean too, quite a bit of dust has built up on the bottom..

    Spent yesterday cleaning inside/outside of the over floor box and the tank, still have to clean the glass on the inside of the tank but I'm going to let it dry and clean it with a razor tomorrow so I don't scratch it (still a few grains of sand) .. Here is a quick pic(cell phone) , sorry for the crappy glare..

    Quick update of the last couple of days.. Since I have the next couple of weeks off I wanted to the time and get everything ready..
    Please excuse the cell phone pics, guess I should get used to using my Nikon..

    Yesterday I hooked up my RODI unit and started making some water.


    With some water made I went ahead and cooked my rock.



    Finished rock drying.


    And a couple of dead coral that I found in my rock bin..

    Finally got myself into our attic and put some blocking so I can hang this fixture.
    I also got the plumbing done and did a leak test.. All good to go, just waiting on my sand to get here.. In the meantime as she sits..

    3 week FTS, started with Dr. Tim's last week, just Dosed my 2nd round of ammonium chloride. I had a small diatom outbreak that lasted about a week, it's almost gone. Haven't cleaned the glass since Wednesday but not much algae grows there yet... Sorry for the cell phone pic.
