1st Ever 90g Mixed Reef

Connecticut
Timeline

Introduction

My first ever reef tank. I had African cichlids before but was always fascinated with a saltwater tank.

Background

I built the custom stand. Bought the reef ready tank used from a reef store for $80 (90g reef ready).I had the reef rock that was bought used from Facebook. Cycled the tank with whatever the rock had.
