Nanoreefer22's 35g Cube Build

Hi all,

And I'm back with yet another tank, nano sized!

Specs:
Tank: 35g Deep Blue Cube (20")
Scape: All Tonga branch pieces together for many smaller pieces
Substrate: Bare bottom
Lights: 2 x AI Vega mounted to electrical conduit and controlled by AI controller
Flow: 2 x Gyre 250
Ca/Alk/Mg: Reef Octo CaRx - effluent controlled by peristaltic pump with carbon doser regulator
Skimmer: HOB Reef Octo BH2000
Heater: 150W Ehiem
Control: Apex Classic Controller with temp & pH probe
Livestock: 11 clowns bred and raised by me. They've already selected a female and the rest are remaining males. No fighting whatsoever.
Corals: All SPS - Millis and Stags only, been a dream of mine for a very long time. Encrusting montis to cover the bare bottom.

Pics to come soon!

Kris

Should mention the tank was filled yesterday. Since it's all dry rock, not fish for 3 months and corals for 4-5. I'm shooting for pest free in every way possible.

Love the rock work.

I use a slightly modified Saxby schedule, - on AI website you'll find downloads to a few great light schedules.
