Thank you for the link but I could not find anything in the "weekly random acts of kindness" section. Am I doing something wrong?

when i was doing freshwater tanks i'd jump on reddit.com/r/plantedtank
its a forum much like this one, but worldwide. a lot of the times users will sell plants really cheap, sometimes just covering shipping costs. might want to check it out. i never found a good place to buy a variety of plants locally.

Anything is good, but I'm especially in need of tall or large plants already rooted in the substrate, like Valisnaria, Corkscrew Val, Temple Plant and Amazon Sword. Please text or call 808-345-1049Aloha,Mark

It is indeed a multi-color dwarf angel fish.  I have had one in my reef tank for well over a year and have had absolutely no issues with it.

No coral parasites. I do have valonia in my overflow boxes so it's possible there is some that may hitchhike on live rock.

It looks like a multicolor dwarf angel to me.  Maybe a venustus hybrid?

Tank Threads : speyside's new 90 gallon reef build!

I wasn't familiar with that cartoon but I looked it up - describes my method here to a T! 

I have been to MWRF twice, once in fall 2011 and once in 2013 if my memory serves me right. I do remember there being an aquascaping contest when I talked to you, so that was probably it. Your tank had some hanging rocks like the floating mountains of pandora right?

Anyway, for an update on the tank - I bought a new protein skimmer from another WMAS member, gave it a vinegar bath, and installed it. It is the Bubble Magus Curve 7. I already had an ASM G4, but the G4 doesnt fit in my sump very well and I had heard good things about the bubble magus. I like that it has the pump inside the cylinder so it takes up a lot less space and makes changing filter socks a bit easier.  Its also easier to remove and clean it when needed.  I can't speak to how much skimmate it produces, as I haven't used it yet.  I'm letting the tank get as grimy as possible during the cycling phase before I turn on any equipment (other than the return pump and heaters of course).

The tank is just cycling right now so I've been taking my time and setting up all the equipment. I still have quite a bit left to install.

I ordered two test kits, one to monitor the cycling process and the other to monitor the tank post cycle. I'll have ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, ph, calcium, alkalinity, and phosphate covered.  Those should arrive today or tomorrow I think.  Gotta love amazon prime.

The equipment I have yet to install includes:
two brs dosing pumps
The 2-part dosing containers
A tunze osmilator ATO
Brs dual reactor for gfo and carbon

I also just bought a used apex classic from a WMAS member. I need to calibrate the probes, mount the controller and get my fusion account setup. It came with a ph, temperature, orp probe, as well as the leak detector module with 1 ALD probe and an energy bar 8.

I have a long list of upgrades to buy for the apex but i plan to wait until everything else is hooked up and running before spending more.

I have the controller for all three powerheads and the return pump that need mounting too. 2 of these wont reach my "fish closet" behind the tank due to really short cords.... not sure what to do about that. I'm wondering if i can find some sort of extension cable online for the jabeo pumps.

Basically I have a decent amount of labor ahead of me that I would like to get finished here by the end of the month. The cycle started June 25th, so I imagine I have a good amount of bacteria in there now, but it doesn't hurt at all to wait little longer.

Hoping to get all this equipment installed asap. Ill post some more pictures of the equipment as it goes in so you can see the progress.
