    Decided to create another tank thread to document and keep a record of my reef!
    I have since upgraded to a 3"1.5"1.5" tank which was given to me by a very nice bro!
    Tank was set up on the 25th of January, using NSW and cycled filter media.

    Equipment list:

    Return pump: DCT 9000
    Light: 2 x 4tubes DE Light
    Skimmer: Aquapharm AP900
    Overflow box: Skimz OM5000

    Scape

    I don't actually feed my zoas. I try to feed mysis to my lps every 2-3 days and hope that my zoas will benefit as well haha..
    I don't measure my no3 and po4
