06/27/2017, 02:03 PM
Hello fellow reefer's. To introduce myself, I am Dev. I am not new to fish keeping. But I'm new to saltwater setup. Looking at all the videos from fellow reefers I got inspired to start this reef tank. Thanks to BRS, Marine depot, King of DIY, and C.J's aquarium.

Why JBJ 45 & AIO?? Well, I had JBJ rimless setup's before this 1 piece glass is awesome. But most importantly, space and location.

Anyway, here is the list of equipment i'd like to use in this setup and go from FOWLR to Mixed Reef as i progress in the build. I plan to do fish-less cycling.

a. JBJ 45
b. Aquamaxx HOB 1.5
c. Tunze Osmolator 3155
d. Innovative Marine-Random Flow spin stream
e. Innovative Marine: MiniMax All-In-One Media Reactor - Mid Size
g. Cobalt Aquatics Neo Therm 200W
g. BRS 4 stage RODI unit

To be purchased:
h. Kessil 360W: Tuna Blue
i. Mp10 or Maxspec 230
j. InTank Media basket

Upgrades for later
k. Algae scrubber or Refugium
l. Apex controller
m. Dosing pumps

Pics will be posted all along and I will do my best to update every week.

Still to order rock, lights and wave makers. Thinking of Pukani dry rock for fishless cycling. In the mean time I am open to suggestions on Mp10 vs. Gyre for this size tank. Please suggest.
