Red Sea Max 130D - 1st "Proper" Reef

Greetings All.

So a little about me (as per usual) I have been keeping a 2.5G Pico tank on my desk at the Office since 1st April 2019. This is a contest on another forum. However this contest ends at the end of next month so I have been searching and shopping around for the past few months in an attempt to build a bigger tank on a small budget (300 set up cost).

PLEASE NOTE THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE BIOFILTER OR LIVESTOCK - I HAVE A SEPARATE BUDGET FOR THAT

Tank: RSM 130D
Heater: Unbranded 200W Heater
Heater Controller: Inkbird
Lighting: Chinese Black Box 168W
Pump 1: "Stock" 350 Gph
Wavemaker 1: Tunze 6015 Wavemaler
Wavemaker 2: Jebao RW2 Wavemaker
ATO Container: 5.5G Cube
ATO: AutoAqua ATO

So far I have spent a Total of 240.00, I do want to upgrade the return pump
at some point. I also have a Skimmer and other bits and bats that came with the tank in the auction

I have spent the last week or so cleaning out the back sump section as well as cleaning up the stand and buffing out as many scratches as I could. I still want to make a few changes to the stand, namely the hinges are severely corroded and I want to replace these asap.

How do i add pictures?

Hi, you have 2 options, you can directly upload your photos by using Reefcentral's Manage Attachments button or you can sign up to a photo website and copy/paste your photos direct links.

Do I need a certain amount of posts first? I cannot see a "Manage Attachments" Button, unless it is a browser issue? I have an Attach Files Box but that simply lists the allowable extensions?

Sorry technology is usually beyond me

Ah ha. IE works when Chrome doesn't. Interesting.

Ok so everything is on the office. I have arranged the cables within the cabinet and run the power strip (with surge protector) into the underfloor cable trays (nice and tidy). I have to shim the tank stand still to get level and then can fill with water. Most likely to be on Friday as I have had to order some 19mm tubing as I have lost the connection between the pump and the output nozzle.
