I stop the hobby about 4 years ago because my busy life and 2nd child is coming.

So now i decided to start over with my dream build.

Go with titanium heater and external controller, then get a used apex and run it off there, dual control is better failsafe. If you ask me the skimmer is the heart of the system but to each their own... is there a chiller for this system or Do you have ac for the house?

Looks great so far!

If you talking about the MDF board.I sealed them using my left over deck waterproof stain wood.then i prime it haha
But not sure if my board are 100% waterproof. Because board edges cant be fully seal. And i notice some bowing when i left my stand outside. When i put it inside the house they turn back to normal.

Yea i am goin to use a chiller. I learned my mistake last 4 years ago. When summer hits. My tank crash loosing 40% of my corals. Thats the day i decided to take a rest reefing lol
And yeah im saving up for apex so i can spend time with my kids rather than my tank haha
