Well here I go again
it's true what they say this is a real addiction.

So it's been a year or so since I shut down my sps dominant tank and now im starting to get the itch again(thanks to one sponser that keeps posting some mouth watering sps you know who you are).

Most of this is gonna be a DIY project.
STAND
All of the lumber was salvaged at a job site(with permission of the G.C) that I'm currently painting in swift current. See attachment
LIGHT HANGER
these are also from the job site,they are 1/2" electrical conduit that sparky bent for me out of scrap pieces. See attachment
SUMP
This was also a previous diy project. This was more stressfull to build then the first time I drilled a tank,but it held
TANK
This new tank is a hagen marina 30gallon not drilled.
So this time I decided to go with a herbie style overflow at the end of the tank,hope this makes scence,if not I have a attachment of the planning stage befor drilling. The return will also be behind the overflow wall.
I will be drilling the tank hopefully next week end as it was impossible to find a 1" bulkhead in regina lots of 3/4 and 1.5 but not 1".

So the good thing is that I kept all my equipment.
Lighting gonna be provided by A.I Sol controlled by D.A controller
Skimmer: SWC 120 cone
Return pump: Quiet one 3500
Water circulation MP10
Controller RKL

Also have but not sure if im gonna use:
Zeovit reactor
tree head doser (bubble magnus)

I'm gonna try to keep this updated as much as possible but since I work out of town 90% of the time.

Getting my overflow wall built by jtcustomacrylic should be sweet
