Hi everyone! I'm Chris and I'm new to the forum. Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.

150g - Oceanic (SPS tank, started 10/14)
30g - Sump

I have some pics but I can't find the damn wire to my camera so I can't upload them. I will do as soon as I can.

Looking forward to participating here!

Regards,
Chris

Welcome to MR. looking forward to seeing some pics. Can you tell us a little more about your tank till you find the wire.
Sure. It's been running for almost two months now. I'm still fighting diatoms at the moment, but hopefully they'll begin disappearing within the coming weeks.

I'm running Current USA Outer Orbit lighting.

3 X 250W Ushio 10k
8 X 39W T5 Actinics

T5's run for 10 hours
HQI's run for 5.5 hours

Temp is managed through a pinpoint temperature controller running both a heater & chiller. I maintain 79* +/- 1* in either direction.

Skimmer is a SRO-3000SSS. It's only been in the tank for 2 weeks now and it's finally beginning to break in. I think this is why the dino's are still hanging around.

I also run GFO in a TLF550 reactor. Ca/Alk maintained via B-ionic 2 part, currently 60ml/day.

pH - 8.05 - 8.15
Nitrate - 0
Nitrite - 0
Amm - 0
PO4 - Salifert says 0 but I disagree based on current algae in tank.
SG - 1.026
Alk - 8.4
Mg - 1400
Ca - 470 (Been dosing just Alk letting this come down a tad)

Anything else?

So here's a couple pictures of my first tank inhabitants. So far, just about evrything is doing really well. I'm pretty happy considering I only started the tank up on 10/14. 2 corals are suffering from light shock, my Red Planet & an encrusting Monti (not sure which one yet as it came with a coral frag pack from aquatic connections). I'll have to wait for it to color back up before I can make an ID.

Let me know what you think.

Orange Monti:



Unknown Acro (picked this up at Manhattan Aqauriums on 37th) but it's growing like crazy!

Enjoy!
