The EZ2Goreef is a 50 gallons reeftank which is my centerpiece of simplicity.

Enjoy!

The tank is literally build as a freshwater tank with 5 glass plates and nothing else.

Dimensions: 116x40x44cm

Technique: powerfilter 1200l/h, self build surface skimmer, SLW20 flowpump, 4x 27 watt JMB ledstrips (prototypes), 6 channel dosingpump of which 5 channels are used for EZbuffer, EZ2Go, NO3+, PO4+, Osmosis water.

Sustainable reefing couldn't be any simpler.
... at least for me (yet).
Is it the reefer, the products, the equipment, the endurance, patience or is it just the perfect joining of knowledge and dumb luck. Who cares... the results are there to enjoy.

We did a swap
3in and 3 out
1x Sixline wrasse and 2x squamipinnis out, because they acted like weenies towards the 3 flavoguttatus
Now the flavoguttus are swimming around freely.

Photo update:


Even a kh swing down to 2,4dhk could not bring down this tank. (Kh channel did not dose for at least 2 weeks)

When the alk dosage stops and the kh drops, the calcium is no longer used. So Calcium was increased to 680ppm. The corals didn't budge

The Magnesium also rise up to 1620ppm because of the low alk.
But it didn't bother any of these corals

The alk was raised with KH+ from 2,4 to 9dkh within 24 hours without an ill effect on the lifestock.

The night pictures are beautiful to say the least. Enjoying the blue and the accompanying fluorescence

Normally i am not a fan of blue lights, but during the last hour of the day it does look magnificent.

A 190 liters tank has limited space, so sometimes uou need to be resourcefull to squeeze in all the corals
