John’s long-awaited 180 gallon reef build is underway. This aquarium will feature rock from real reef, as well as auto top-off direct from an ro/di unit, a calcium reactor as well as dosing pumps, phosban reactor and everything else to make this a successful mixed reef. In this video, John launches the project with an overview of set up and the first week of frustration.
