Introduction

This is my upgrade tank, had a 29 gal bio-cube that was very successful that I had up and running for 3 years. I'll be transferring most of the nicer corals over as well as the fish. Hopefully not the bryopsis which was a total PITA from the 29.

Filtration

Filtration is from the 60#'s of live rock I added and 45#'s of beautiful Tropic of Eden Reef Flakes. I also plan to add a block of media rock to the sump as I have very limited amount of area to work with.

The skimmer is an Vertex Omega 150

Additives

In this tank I'm going to use the regular Red Sea Salt, not the Red Sea Pro that I used in the 29 for years. The goal, a lower dkh. That said, I will dose BRS 2 part via a pair of 1.1 ml/m pumps.

The only other additives used are Red Sea Colors A,B,C, & D and Red Sea Energy A & B.

On average you perform a 8.2% water change every 173 days.

0% total water change in March.
