  1. My First Reef

    I finally have my first reef running like I want. I’m considering this the official start because I had to take everything out and reseal the tank. While I had it out in the garage I decided to leave the sand out and black out the back and part of each side to match the overflow weir. I got the tank second hand already running and the water parameters were in bad shape. I now have the parameters in check but have to get hair algae under control. I am running a 6 bulb t5 fixture. May current stock in the tank is as follows: fish/inverts -ocellaris clown -Bangai cardinal -pinkbar goby -arc eye hawkfish -skunk cleaner shrimp corals -Indo blue disco mushroom -neon green rhodactis mushroom -sunny d zoas -arctic ice zoas -candy cane coral -pulsing Xenia - green star polyp I’ve been thinking about a tuxedo urchin and some more hermits for additional cuc. I’m open to suggestions and recommendations for my next additions for fish and corals
  2. My LED light is going out. Looking to replace it but budget is a concern. It's a very basic 45 gallon tank with easy, beginner level zoas, soft corals, mushrooms. One clown fish, clean up crew, about 60lbs of live rock and reef octopus skimmer. Any suggestions?
