I have a buddy that has a 100 gallon corner reef system and he has a tunze WB on his he uses the magnetic holders on the overflow and built the aqua scape around it so u can't see it and the water is pushed out from a cave straight to the front and he has a good wave in his tank

The possibilities are endless. My thought on all of this is as I previously stated, if it ain't broke... Right now I have a (6) month running tank that, other than a few bumps, is really thriving.

I would love to give my tank a cleaner more modern look with all the bells and everything, but in the end, it looks great and if everything is happy, I'll be happy to not spend $1500+ on a wave maker, PH's, and a controller. Not to mention a titanium heater, skimmer, better / quieter return pump, ATO, etc.

I do have a bad feeling that in about 6 weeks when I've filled the tanks capacity for livestock, I'll start eyeing all that wonderful equipment.

That is so true but the one thing I have learned is it will save you headaches and money to get the good stuff the first time but I agree with u if ur tank is thriving let it go and see where it takes you

Can't argue with that!

Mini-update: feeding time this morning, I saw the (2) peppermint shrimp, 7 out of 9 of the new nassarius snails, and of course all of the fish including the blenny. His new hidey-hole is right out front so I see him lots!

Everything is alive and well.

but my money is burning a hole in my pocket!!!!! lol I think I just need to get the new stand built so I can rescape & make some plumbing changes. I have changed my mind on the controller as-well. I can see dumping $600 on A controls when I don't even do water tests. lol I am going To go Ahead and order all 3 available Hanna digital testers, I can see that being a bad investment.
With the car coming home I'm positive I'll find something to buy. Not to mention riding weather in done here, or at-least for me.... sooo now's the time to do any work on it.

+1 on the checkers - that's an investment I'm going to make as well. Calcium 1st, then alk, then phosphates, and mg if they got it.

A tunze nano wb is like 330. And I really like the look of a standing wave, plus the benefits of the added flow and almost zero dead spots. With the Hanna checkers do you still gotta use a liquid reagent? So it's not really any less work, just more accurate. Right?
