Basic full overview of the system
I've been working on this project for around a month. The planning has been going on for more than a year. With that being said, i'm a newb when it comes to this.
For many years, I have kept freshwater tanks. After a recent move, I got rid of everything except the tank itself, and I decided to change over to a saltwater tank. I sure that I am ready for the challenge and am interested in learning the new techniques for this new part of the hobby.
Heres the area before. unfortunately

life has kept me busy but ive had a lil time to build my g/f Emily a new nano setup. this will be her new zoa garden. tank is a marine land 27g cube 20x18x20, filter is a cpr aquafuge, tunze nano top off and a reef keeper lite. vortech mp-10 and a ecotech radion gen 1. stand was hand built by slef and a kreg jig(awesome).
stand is made of 3/4 oak plywoood, fron door comes off completly and drawer has a quiet close slide.

So to add to the video update, some verbal updates:
- The hood is pretty and all (To me) but it is a pain to remove and put back on. I don't plan on getting a new one anytime soon, especially since everything fits so nicely in there: The pendant, feeder, filtration is well hidden, etc.
- I've started testing more often just to know where my params are at, out of curiosity. Cal seems to
After 6 + years of keeping an SPS dominated tank I have been forced to start over due to a slow and painful tank crash. I'm not quite sure what to attribute the crash to whether it was old tank syndrome (if that is even a real thing), two hurricanes and prolonged power outages with no generator, sheer size of my SPS colonies and my not being able to keep up with my ca2 or dkh demand are all viable possibilities etc etc.
Anyway, after deducing that at least one problem was likely that

Since October, my last update, I've been pretty busy...and I'm only going to get busier because the tank is wet! We're at the end of the cycle now, just letting things flow as we're not on any particular schedule here. Although amusingly enough Tibet is quieter then our grow out tank. I attribute it to the wide overflow, and the sump design.
I have a skimmer on order, an RLSS r10, which I'm dying to get my hands on. So far the tank has run completely skimmerless since it was filled.
