    Cool Hello!

    I've had a 20g nano reef running for about two and a half years now, but just purchased a 35g cube to upgrade to. It's been a bit overwhelming, as the previous owner used it as FOWLR and made a lot of personal mods to it so now I'm trying to figure out how to tweak things like the lighting, but in the end I think it's going to be really great.

    In the 20g I've got various softies, LPSes, and an RBTA. A skunk cleaner shrimp rules the rocks, a peppermint shrimp rules the shadows, and a six-line wrasse rules the alleys alongside a CUC of various hermits and snails. The tank is pretty understocked, but to be honest I've been trying to save up to upgrade to something larger instead of looking for new additions.

    Welcome to ORCA forums !!!

    Upgrades are always good, in no time you'll see your new bigger cube to be small again



    We all love pictures.
    Good Luck,

    Sounds like you well on your way to a another happy reef. keep your eyes out for a great buy on craigs list.. tanks go thru there often as complete setups for 1000$ in the 100-175 gallon range which is more than enough to sustain a long term happy reef to a dedicated reefer such as your self.

    Welcome to ORCA
    Four individual systems Right now.
    Modified Red sea 250 with attached 20 gal frag system XR15 pro light on FRAG tank, combo t5 reef bright led on main tank, now @100 gal total mostly sps tank, auto WC, Custom life reef filtration system Fuge and skimmer. KALK ATO chiller mp10's.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 quarantine set up.
    375 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 9 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 48" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, I am expanding into this one ATM bit by bit,

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties and a FRAG saw will be in my future I think. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    THANKS ORCA!!!!
