    Rebuilding my reef starting with a 40 gallon Zero Edge

    Reefing has been tough for me this year. I have lost 3/4 of all my corals. Sadly, mostly colonies of some beautiful and colorful SPS's. The result was due to my lack of maintenance and for not being available to correct the parameters when there is an Alk and/or PH spike. Life just got in the way of reefing. During this period, I graduated, found a job, bought a house, packed and moved, got married and went on our honeymoon, so wasn't a complete lost

    I managed to set up the Zero Edge i got from BRudy just in time to save some corals. This is the tank that I absolutely love and saw it passed around the club a couple times before I get the chance to own it.

    I wanted to set up this system independent from the 300DD with basement build that is in the work, so the set up is very simple. The filtration system includes a sump, a skimmer, and a home-made algae scrubber. A Reefkeeper Lite is used to control two Ocean Revive LED lights, and two BRS dosing pumps for Alk and Cal (currently not hook up yet). Also, if i can convince Mr. @Hooked to build me a nice ATO container, then i'll hook up the Tunze Nano ATO to somewhat automated this system.

    The tank will mainly be stocked with LPS, but will also be my SPS quarantine tank. This tank will kick start my new reefing journey, and I will try to get a tank build thread for my 300DD going soon.
