My little reefs

    My system is three nano reefs plumbed together. 20"x24"x8" main tank, a 6.8 gallon cube and 10 gallon corner tank. The 10 gallon and 6.8 both drain into a 20 gallon refugium that then drains to the main sump which is a 10 gallon. The main tank drains direct to this sump also.
    I estimate a total water volume of 45gallons and about 60lbs of live rock spread between the tanks and sand in all three displays.

    its the phone camera orientation that does it I believe. The forum sometimes reads them that way as result. You can try flipping it in the phone and reload it

    Looks like you’ve got enough room for another tank.

    10 gallon corner tank. This tank was added to the system in February. Its currently infested with gha. Hoping to put my bta in here if I can figure out the algae issues. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Cute little corner tank. Just keep pulling the gha out and eventually the rocks will burn through the nutrients feeding it. Thus is the issue with starting with dry rock, but it will clear in time. You could also add a bag of gfo in it to help draw out the nutrients too, to speed it up

    I'm running phosguard in my reactor currently. I hope it clears soon my anemone just isn't as cool in a basket.

    Added a bigger sump today. Cut the stand to fit it but that was part of the plan.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Corner tank in its current state. Corner overflow was made by cutting a modurlare marine overflow down to 3/4" profile then cut in half and bonded at a 90° with weldon.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Bigger sump means now there’s enough room for more tanks. ;)

    Picked up a springeri damsel for the corner tank. Amazing blue! Will post pictures when he warms up a bit
