Hi there, 

Not new by any means, but figured I should put up a build thread at some point and a very very brief intro. 

I'm TJ, a 10+ year reefer from Fredericton, a biochemist/chemist/immunologist, and this is my SPS dominant RSR 250. I also have a tank that is mostly dedicated to zoas, so those pics sometimes find their way onto my build threads. 

Tank Specs

Lighting: Giesemann 8 Bulb T5 - 4 x Blue Plus, 2 x Actinic, 1 x Coral Plus, 1 x Purple Plus

Skimmer: Vertex Omega 130

Heater: Eheim Jager 200w

Flow: RE RD3 50W Return & 4 x Tunze 6055 Powerheads

Doser: GHL Doser 2 dosing ATI Essentials

Controller: GHL Profilux 4

Other Additives: DIY Potassium Nitrate, DIY Potassium Phosphate,  KZ Coral Vitalizer, KZ Zeobak, KZ Zeostart3

It's relatively low maintainence, I only have to change out the dosing solutions once a month-ish and add a few drops of nutrients whenever I feed the fish. I rarely do water changes unless something seems off, which at one point, it did, as a Jebao pump was rusting in my sump leeching tin into the water. It's since been replaced and the tin has dropped about 60%, slowly getting back to zero.

True Oregon Tort, fully blue acro.

Thanks for that. I've had one growing for many years in my tank, identical. It came from Cytex's tank.
 I keep it on the dark edge of my tank for deep water acro. And other sps that do better in weak light.
Your tank looks amazing to say the least. Really nice to see the pics.
Awesome. Really nice pics. Well done!!
Nice to see you on this forum!!
