    I'm back in with a Reefer 170. My previous 90 gallon setup was broken down and sold off after we moved. Downsizing for now. Need to keep things simple and easy to maintain.

    The tank and stand were super easy to setup. It feels like cheating! I'm used to DIY for everything. I made a little basket out of egg crate to grow mangroves in. We'll see how it goes.

    Equipment:
    Sicce syncra silent 2.0 return pump
    Bubble magnus curve 5 skimmer
    Ecotech MP40
    AI prime HD
    Apex Jr
    Eheim heaters (2)

    Most of this equipment was pulled over from the previous setup. Everything but the skimmer and return pump. The AI prime came off the 10 gallon cube I had going for the build contest.

    I sold or rehomed some of the livestock from previous tank, but I kept some corals, anemones, and clownfish pair.

    I'll post pics now of starting up the tank and then get some updated photos with livestock posted soon. I moved the livestock in on Sunday. Tank started up with water, sand, rock on 2/22.

    Thanks for looking.
