After almost 12yrs away from reef keeping, I'm back...

Decided to go with a smaller modular setup this time. A 50G with a 30G sump and 32G prop+refugium tank.

The idea was/is to keep the reef setup and its maintenance as simple as possible.

Thanks gimmiks and jsarrow.

Here are a few images of my setup, the stuff in the cabinets. Sump, plumbing, skimmer, auto-doser, wavemaker and pump controllers, chiller, etc.

And lights. After some basic research and seeing reefers' tanks under different lighting setups, and with a predominantly SPS reef in mind, I went for the AI Hydra HDs. I liked the ease of setting up and configuring the lights/spectrum, and the user friendly mobile app.
