Heresie 2

Timeline

Introduction

2018-06-11 : This tank is runned with tap water (no RO unit), no protein skimmer, hence the name heresy (it could be an heresy for certain aquarios). Even the sump i did stop using it, it is too large, not convenient to use and maintain at the moment. However i keep no fishes, population and pollution is low, only snails and will add shrimps later, that's all.
Corals are mainly soft easy corals, although i have 2 LPS & 1 SPS.

2018-05-19 : Tank moved to new home, sump will not be used anymore, at the moment at least.

Purchased for 300$, this tank with stand and a 30G sump.
