First setting up:





First time ever going bare bottom. Sb extreme led lighting, Jeabo 1600 dc pump and 2 mp40s to start it off.




Every tank I had owned was mixed reef with 2” sand bed. They had always cycled fast and never had an issues. I wanted to try bare bottom this time. I like the look and really had planned on heavy flow so that I can really grow some bigger sps colonies this time.
