Things are getting started for my planned upgrade from my 10 gallon FOWLR
to a 30 gallon reef. May not seem like a huge upgrade but I really wanted to go reef and I already had the 30, so that helped minimize (or at least justify) the cost.
So here is the 10 gallon now:
30 g long
Bak Pak 2 skimmer
4x39 watt T5 lighting, 2 10000K and 2 actinic (Current Nova Extreme)
100 watt Visitherm stealth heater
30 lbs Aragamax sand
2 Maxi Jet 900 PHs (230 gph
the 20 lbs LR
from the 10 gallon, plus more as I get some
1 reef ball (more on that later)
from the 10g:
6 line wrasse
dwarf zebra hermits
Hope to add:
some more dusters
fish?? not sure what else to get
zoos, mushrooms and other soft corals.
Here is the 30 about 1/3 full of DI
(I bring water home from work so takes a few days). The sand, salt mix and powerheads have been ordered, so just waiting for those to arrive before taking the next steps.

Apartment with the 30g and the planted 55. This will be a really nice pic once the 30 is set up and running:
