Introduction

Started my 57 gal Rimless adventure about 6 years ago. This after going through countless years of frustration with a 75 gallon and no position to buy what I needed for years! A move to a different state and sold the 75 gallon. Trials and tribulations and kids have gotten the best of my tank. Competitive cheer is no joke, lots of traveling. Well that's done and now I get to focus on my hobby. Here it is and hope you enjoy.,

Also added Lifereef Bio-Reactor and 2 media reactors today. Not online yet, but will be. Need to get a pump and media already ordered. Things are definitely coming along!
It's been 21 days since the install of my Lifereef Sump/Refugium/Skimmer and I couldn't be happier. Tank is coming around. Added a new Radion Gen4 Pro. Got some LPS from a local, they are doing well.
Final stages happening. Adding Radion Gen 4 and some tonga branch rock.
Restarted 11/2 due to sump change, massive water change, update to light program, etc. It's a new beginning.
