    Hello everyone, I am new to reef hobby and located in Conway. I only got into saltwater aquariums last year and started setting up a tank for a reef in March of this year.

    My wife and I love to scuba dive, so I decided to setup a reef system for our home for when we are not in the water.

    My current setup is a custom white stand I made to match our home d├ęcor with a 75 Gallon tank I drilled and a trigger 36 ruby sump. I am running an Apex controller, with FFM module for my ATO. I am using MP40 and a MP10 for flow. For lighting I am currently using a Current USA Marine Led I already had. Current inhabitants of the tank are Yellow Tang, Kole Eye Tang, 2 Ocellaris Clowns, and a Scarlett Shrimp. I also have several types snails and a crab. I have only Chateo algae currently in the refugium that I have also seeded with some Tisbe pods. The only coral currently in the tank is a green star polyp on a small island rock to keep it in check.

    I am looking forward to meeting some local reef keepers, so I am glad to find this group.

    Nice looking setup! I'm wanting to add a Kole Tang to my tank in a few months. A hammer coral is a good one to start with in my opinion. Your clowns may choose it as their home as well. My clown loves her hammer!

    Beautiful set up! Well done on the stand construction.

    I also live in Conway and my wife and I love to dive as well. Hope you can come to our meeting Saturday. Let me know if you need a place to test equipment/drills. We built our pool deep enough to do just that.

    I do plan on making it to the meeting on Saturday. Thank you for the offer on the pool, we have one and it is so handy for servicing/testing equipment. My wife and I tend to plan our vacations around were we can dive :)
