Ok, so we started this thread in July of last year so it was completely lost. Seeing as how I liked this build thread I figured I would just start it over and you guys will get a super fast roughly one year build. I looked into malulu's method but it only returned about 2 pages of the 17 page thread. Also I think I can do this is about a half hour.
Onto the actual build:
45g non drilled tank
Aqua C remora HOB skimmer
CPR HOB fuge
Aquatinics TX5 5 bulb t5 (bulbs back to front ATI blue+, ATI aquablue, ATI purple, Ati aquablue, ATI blue+)
MP40 (turned down obviously) was put in to replace mp20
BRS Dual reactor (added down the line) running rox carbon and BRS GFO pellets
Marine magic dual doser (added down the line) dosing alk 8.3 an calcion both from Brightwell
Live rock was all cycled and added from our 20g tank so it is now three years old. Clean up crew is a motley assortment of nassarius snails, chestnut nassarius snails (big suckers), ceriths, nerites, trochus, blue legged hermits and scarlet hermits. There are also some emerald crabs running around in there to help combat our fight with bubble algae. They will be removed when this tank is moved hopefully shortly.
Corals: From every category, LPS, SPS, zoas, and NPS. Honestly too many to list out as many of you know and will see in the pictures. SPS is probably at least 50% of the tank and doing well.
Fish: (None of these guys are over 2 inches and we have zero aggression so far)
Pair of spawning mandarins (trained onto frozen for 2 years plus)
Pair of picasso clowns
Four barnacle blennies
Pair of bangaii cardinals (tank raised we got them as babies)
ORA gold assesor basslet
