30 Gallon Budget Reef

30 gallon Clear-for-life, I got this tank with the stand and lights for $180 on CL.
I bought as an established tank and decided to start over as it was infested with bristle worms. Started with new LR and sand.
A little over $360 into this tank including live stock.
It helps alot that I have a an awesome LFS that always gives me good deals.

Tank: Clear-for-life 30 Gallon
Stand: Unknown/ Big box store
Light: Wave Point 30W LED light bar (Corals are somehow growing great???)
Power Head: Hydor Koralia Nano 565 GPH
Heater: Unknown 100W (Included with tank)
Protein Skimmer: CAD Lights PLS-50

Live Stock:
Ocellaris Clown
Copperband Butterfly
Royal Gamma
Yellow Watchman Goby
Peppermint Shrimp
Cleaner Shrimp
Pulsing Xenia
Zoas
Green Star Polyps
Frog Spawn
A few unidentified corals

Before anyone says anything the copperband butterfly is not in its permanent home, I plan on upgrading within the next 6 months.

Nice !!
Looks good and the CB seems small enough that he should be fine for 6 months.
Mine got pretty big in my 75!
