The humble start of the tank and my mixed reef experince. Some of the livestock most of the rock are still present in today’s setup. Not much else is left from the original setup.
It was a 30 breeder with a 20 gal sump, a RIO 2100 return and a noisy elbow for an overflow. It had a 150Watt MH and a small skimmer. My first upgrades were to a 30 sump, dual quiet overflows, mag7 return, mag5 skimmer feed to AquaC ev-180 skimmer. I then upgraded to a 250w MH with supplemental T8s. Finally after enough experience with a small system it was transferred in to the 110gal featured on the other pages.
Here are some photos from late June 2010.
