It is just a 2 gallon I had for just incase. I added the extra piece of Marine Pure from my sump, a piece of polyfilter, some pvc pieces, heater, air line and thermometer. I do about a 25% water change everyday. After I get the corals moved from the 14 gallon biocube it will become the new QT once all emptied and cleaned.
Got some more equipment installed today. Got the dosers mounted in the stand, got my kalkwasser reactor/stirrer up and running and installed my PM1 module and hooked up and calibrated a second ph probe for the kalk reactor . Time to start adding corals soon!
Lol I will try to get some tonight. I moved over 7 of them. They were a little pissed off after acclimation and coral bath so they were closed up last night. Some were halfway to fully open this morning so should be able to get some shots

It is just a small piece of a marine pure block I trimmed off the big pieces for my sump. I keep it in my sump to keep the bacteria populated in case I need to throw it in a small tank for some biological filtration. Also keep a bag of seachem matrix too for the same purpose.
January Update:Added Snowflake Eel – Doing well and eating 1-2 silverside every other day. Getting along well with everyone, although the damsels do not like him when he is in their territory and smack him in the face when he comes around, they are not very friendly neighbors LOL.

February Update:Upgraded my return pump to the Octo Varios8 Pump and connected it to my APEX to one of the variable speed ports. With a little programming help from some members it is working great and have soft start up after feed modes. Love this variable speed pump.View attachment 1200Later added the new corals to the main display. Starting to brighten up when the blues come on now February FTS.View attachment 1201
March Update: Upgraded my powerheads from (four) Hydor Koralias to (two) Gryre XF 230. Only connected controller to APEX power since the controller that comes with it has so many mode options. So far loving the new random flows. Corals are happy too! View attachment 1202Also got one of the Fire Tablets and made it a display for the APEX Fusion site so I can control all the tanks in the house from one place Also got some custom Melev’s Reef stands made from Marc for the two new display/controllers to complete my power station.View attachment 1203Picked up some more corals from a member. I wanted to add some purple color so got some purple acros, digis, and milka sylo. Also grabbed some ribbon coral, not sure of actual name?View attachment 1204It also appears that I have a mated pair of damsels because they laid eggs this month. The male protects and fans them all day, finally got a shot with him away during feeding. Tons of eggs under one of my monti frags. Guess the fish and coral will be getting a snack when they hatch. View attachment 1205My method of planning where the new corals will be placed on the reef so I can just grab and glue!View attachment 1206
