    So I started afew years ago but i wasn't really very serious with the hobby until now The addiction had got me saving up to get a bigger tank, one after another. So this is my current tank
    [​IMG]

    It started from this:
    [​IMG]

    But then I decided to redo and got a 3ft X 1.5 X 1.5ft tank and got artificial rocks instead.
    So this was when I started cycling my tank:[​IMG]

    and started adding life to the tank by trying out anemones (which was a wrong choice)
    [​IMG]

    Here's some vids on the anemone I got:




    So after like a month or so the anemone died. I really miss my magnificent anemone though I like to feed it and watch the clownfishes have a symboitic relationship with it.

    SO......as of 2016, I plan to change in to a bigger tank from a 3ft X 1.5ft X 1.5ft into a 3ft X 3ft X 2.5ft!!!! Almost double the size So I have contacted CR aquariums to help me get it done but the question is.....should I make the new tank into a reef or should I make it into a FOWLR?

    A sps dominated tank bro. Trust me, u wont regret. If u need more poison, let us know. We will sure poison u into reef passion rather than fowlr!!

    3ft cube is really a good dimension.

    So I've made up my mind to set up a ULN SPS dominated tank. I came across this zeovit thread and I just don't understand it. What are the equipments and things I need to get to actually run a ULN tank?

    Many ways to achieve ULN. Just need to understand which does what. Then got to make your decision.

    My way is, AIO (hassle free and easy) + AF pro bio s. With only this 2, i settled my nutrient problems.

    Now daily im feeding like mad with frozens with bo problem

    Glad you chosen sps dominated

    HAHA thanks!!! I think I'll go with your way since it's less complex Btw I've read that you are currently using aquaforest? How is it? If you don't mind me asking.....If I have a Calcium reactor do I need to dose like AF Component 1+ 2+ 3+ . I was currently thinking of replenishing the nutrients economically in the long run

    So far so good.
    Especially very friendly to my wallet as im still schooling with no income .

    Im running a calcium reactor (skimz) too. If running calcium reactor, you do not need 1+, 2+, 3+. But ABC.
    If u like more control of individual color improvement, then it will be fluorine (blue) , kalium (pink, red) , iron (green).
