The recovery

Posted 07/18/2010 at 08:22 PM by Mmckibben

It took one year, but i fixed every thing. First i had a huge aiptasia problem, it took me $500. Right after that all my fish suddenly died from velvets. Then over a 30 day period i got RTN, flat worms, and a phosphate buildup. Now after losing all but 5 of my corals, and a new phosphate reactor, every thing is perfect. I have perfect water conditions and tons and tons of coraline algae.

I'm now working on a DIY led system using a 24 volt 4 amp dimming power supply, standard house dimmer, and 21 cree xpgs. The aquarium is 36 gallon with 45 pounds of live rock, and a vortech mp 10. I have it resting on a DIY stand. I have a 20 gallon refugium, protein skimmer, chiller, and phosphate reactor in my closet next door. I plan to add on a fragging aquarium next week. The nice thing is all i have to buy is an aquarium, since i have the lights and pumps.

I'd like to get a six line wrass, orange stripe cardanal fish, 3 blue green reef chromis, and a lemon goby. The aquarium is set up to house hard corals, so i thought this would be a good combination of fish for sps corals. What do you guys think?
