    Looking great, Mac!

    Did/do you have to cure your rock? I was fortunate enough to get live rock from my local reef shop so I didn't have to wait for the tank to cycle. I was going back and forth with Spardas on the phone during the course of planning and setting up the tank. Following his guidance I had hermits and snails by day 2 and started adding small coral frags one or two at a time by the 2nd or 3rd week. Never had any issues with the tank.

    But if you had to cure the rock and wait for the cycle to establish that will delay things a bit for you.

    A fair bit of tge rock has been curing in aerated ocean water for about a month.

    Now in the tank. On the whole though its going to take some time.

    The skimmer is flat out pulling rubbish out..
    To be honest sw makes fresh water so dull.

    I can see the fish room once we get the ideal house being a a high amount of sw.

    It sure does. I still care for my FW tanks but I honestly wouldn't mind trading all the freshwater out if it meant I could have a big reef tank. SW is great for people like me who like to constantly be tinkering with a tank. My planted tanks are set-and-forget. Aside from the occasional trim and water changes, they don't keep me engaged as much as I'd like. That's why I am also setting up new tanks and scapes. It gives me something to do. SW isn't more difficult than fresh, per say, but it definitely keeps you busy with the testing and adjustments and maintenance. I really like it.

    Plus the animals are just incredibly exotic and colorful.

    See breeding for me keeps me engaged for fw.

    But the sw side coral growing is what i want. The color.

    First lot of tests done for the new reef tank. Note this is pure ocean watwr from off our beach in the south pacific nz run through sediment filter sock then coffee filter for fine particles. Tests done with red sea kit.
    Ph 8.2
    Alk 8
    No4 between 0.0 and 0.2.
    No3 5.0
    No2 0.0

    Salinity through the refractometer
    1.027.
    Need to get confirmation on my celebration.
    Missing phosphate test kit and calcium.
    Cost thus far.
    $157 zetlight wifi
    $85 aliexpress skimmer (excuse the lack of name. Chinese isn't one thing i can read well.)
    $150.00 ac50 hob
    $100.00 jebao wave maker.
    $250.00 aprox for red sea test kit. Some still arriving.
    $450.00 for 50kg dry rock. Not all in this tank.
    $25.00 heater.

    So all these prices are rounded up nz currancy.
    As the dry rock i have heaps left for when i start up the 130g reef tank in the future.

    Ideally this costs around the same as any other of my none air fed tanks to set up for fw.

    One of my favorites with a nice color scheme, and a very hardy fish (I still have the royal gramma that I acquired in 2006).
    African cichlid and saltwater aquariums
