Fast update - i have not taken any pix in the last few days so i will try this week end... the last of the diatoms have gone and the others pests have dies down ... the addition of Cheato and another Macro (i dont recall the name) have really helped a ton!

pods all over the glass last night and the 2 little asternia stars i started with have now turned to 6 or more all crabs are showing good growth and the snails are doing a great job keeping things clean as well...

last night i got the beginning of my fuge and will take step by step pix of it as i figure out the final details and start to build it..

testing yesterday shows a stable 0 on everything PH is 8.4 cal is a steady 450 and all is well... i think keeping things natural and simple has made a huge difference in this tank from the last one and i am super happy with it as things move forward..

always looking forward to pictures.

any ideas on future stocking for fish, coral or inverts? what lighting are you running, t5s? i guess i should ask, what are your short term goals for this? (things to get, do, build, add, ect )

so here is a really nice update....
i have the new pumps in they are 1300GPH each and create a great amount of flow...




i have built the fixture so i can move the lights easier when needed



the refugium is built




and set up , running for 2 days now






all i need to do is take it off line and paint it this week end (i wanted to run it first to be sure it worked the way i wanted it too)
Friday i am getting a pair of Clarkies for this tank and in time a few more corals ... i think i am just about done !!! so very excited

did you design the refugium yourself or is there a DIY article?

Looks nice

i found a thread about some one making one from a battery box and after a failed attempt at that one the wife and i got to brain storming and modified the plan to this one here.. it works great. a few small tweeks to iron out the bubble issue and we are golden.. when i take it off to paint i will add an external dorso type air inlet to the elbows to permit air to escape.. should fix it right up..
