Hey All - New Reefer Here

Hey Folks,

I am setting up my first 90 gallon reef tank. It is a little unique just because I am renting a 2 bedroom in NYC - should be interesting.

I have been curing my rock (~35lbs cured from LFS and ~75lbs Dry from a previous FOWLR set-up)

I am loving this forum and am hoping to pick the brains of all the veterans out there.

Love the hobby and patiently waiting to add my clean up crew!

I am starting to get a diatom bloom.

Also I posted a need Identification in that forum if anyone can help.

Thanks again so much!

The following are my tank specs:
90 Gallon Tempered Glass
OCReef 48 x 3watt CREE LED
Aqueon HOB Overflow Box 110
Maggie Muffler - Overflow Silencer
15 Gallon Sump
SWC Xtreme 160 Cone Skimmer
Mag 9.5 Return Pump
Aqua Lifter ATO with Float Switch
2 Hydor Evo 1500 Powerheads
Hydor Smartwave Wave Maker
2 – 150w Eheim Jager Heaters
Eheim 2228 Cannister filter (housing LR for Cryptic Refugium)
35 lbs of Live Rock
75 lbs of Dry Rock (now Live)
Water General 150gpd RODI

My current water state:
Ammonia 0.25 ppm
Nitrite 0.125 ppm
Nitrate 5 ppm
pH 8.1
