    Hi everyone,

    I've been in this hobby for a small while. I restarted my tank about 2 weeks ago.

    The tank is setup as follows:
    Capacity: 415L DT, 90L sump (the tank is a prebuilt AquaH2O)
    Lighting: One T5 quad and One 150w Metal Halide
    Protien Skimmer: newly added reef octopus 200xs (in sump)
    Flow rate from DT to sump: 2500L/H
    Circulation: 3 power heads
    Live rock: 2.7kg tonga, 1.7 kenya (soon to have new 2-5kg fiji)
    Base rock: many kg's off fiji (yes fiji, i left the rock in a dry container for +-8 months, very sad about that...)
    Sand: 1.5"-2" sand bed
    Heater is rated for 800L-1000L
    Salt: Tropic marine pro-reef

    I currently have spaghetti algae in the sump as well as 3-5kg crushed coral and 2kg lava rock.

    CUC: 3 Snails, 2 Hermit crabs and one anemone crab
    Coral: 1 Zoa piece

    Thanks in advanced

    Perhaps I should, thanks :thumbup:

    I "took" a break because I caused a "mini-cycle" that wasn't so "mini" and it ended up wiping all my corals and fish out (still makes me sad till today).
    I'm glad to be back, thanks :thumbup:

    Always sad to read / hear about losses. The important thing was the lessons learned from the ordeal, and getting back into it, avoiding the same mistakes.

    Hope to meet you in person at the next Pta Reef meet! ;)
