I started my Cube in the begininning of this year. It has the stock lighting with the led bars added. (all blue) I bought it used so I put new pcf lights in it. I added an aquatic life 115 skimmer, and a jebao rw-4 pump. 150 watt neo therm heater. I added about 25 lbs of live rock and a 20 lb bag of live sand. Filled it with a mix of Nutri seawater and rodi water with salt added. Watched my levels rise and fall then after I added the cleanup crew (got it Bklyn Zoo) (red and blue leg hermits) and snails and having the lights on for about 8 hrs a day I noticed my temps hovering around 82 degrees and purchased a chill solutions csxc-1 chiller with solved that problem. Added my shrimp (Bklyn Zoo)( 2 cleaner and one fire). waited another week and all my water parameters were still good so i added a few small coral frags (POP)( 3 types of zoas -- eagle eyes, utter chaos, and a purple one??) and one head of candy cane. Also added a (Bklyn Zoo)Coral Beauty Angel. Waited another week and everyone looks happy and healthy and my parameters were all still great so i got a bunch of nicer corals for free from a coral shop by me. (POP)( 2 zoas-- utter chaos/ sunny d combo frag, and a unstoppable gobstopper with about 8 polyps & 2 Acan frags with two heads each) and another dwarf angel -- (POP)Eibli ( i know the angels are iffy at best but i Love them so I'm taking the chance.) I've been off the last few days and my tank is in my office so I'm hoping everyone is happy alive and healthy when i get back. Yesterday i was at another shop by my house and they were having a 1/2 off sale on all corals so i picked up a few more frags (Pets Aquatic)( I Know I'm rushing it but they were nice pieces for 1/2 off !!!! couldn't resist) 1 mushroom, 2 chalice, and one nuclear green gonipora. I pick them up tomorrow on my way to work. Ill be doing a water change this week and watching my numbers. I run carbon and GFO in my rack filter in the rear compartment of the tank. Ill post pictures and water parameters tomorrow.

The first pic is the new 1/2 price frags. the second is the 1/2&1/2 frag of utter chaos and sunny d's, the third pic is the 8 polyps of gobstoppers?? (thats what a online guy said his best guess from the picture which i know is blurry) and the last 2 are the rock in my tank. Everything is under the 10k and actinic lights. I have a bunch of pics under just the actinic where some stuff really pops ill try to post from my phone.
