    About me, Married with 4 kids and live in Kent, Work in London as a frontend web developer. Been now running a reef tank for close to 9 years. A year ago I shut down 2 of my reef tanks and created a new one 72" X 30" X 27" Using Reel Reef Rock and 4 Radions Pros. I have 10 wavemakers in the system to try and cut out any dead areas and my sump is 52" X 25" X 20" with an external protein skimmer and Calcium reactor.

    A couple few weeks ago run to problems keeping my PH levels up above 8.0 in the evening and fixed that after losing a couple of SPS. Now my PH sits around 8.01 in the evenings/night with it returning to 8.27 - 8.30 in the afternoon.

    My tank is a Mixed reef. As level goes to knowing all about a Reef system, I'm always a beginner. I have made mistakes and found out things that are not always mentioned or obvious.

    Fish: Yellow Tang, Purple Tang, Sohal Tang, Mimic, Leopard Wrass, Picasso clowns, Cooperband Butterfly, Vlamingi Tang, Goldrim Tang, FoxFace and kole Tang

    I don't have an Apex system but will go for one at some point. Its more a Nice to have so at the moment i want my system complete before i bolt anything else on to it.

    Anyway Hello from me \o/

    Welcome to TSB :) Nice tank!

    I would rather give up the hobby than do without my apex now, it makes live so much easier
