Brandon's operation reboot 300DD

Well I really thought long and hard about getting out of the hobby for awhile. And might have if I thought I could get rid of the remaining livestock to one person that could house everything. And before anyone asks I'm still unsure what caused the events. I've since noticed a bacteria bloom but no ammonia spikes. Only other spike was a ph bottom out but just the once. Needless to say I lost the following:

2 X yellow tang
Purple tang
Unicorn tang
Yellow watchmen pair
2 X skunk clown
1 X Darwin clown
1 X Wyoming white clown
Melanarus wrasse
Green coris wrasse
Solaris wrasse
Lubbock wrasse
Scott's fairy wrasse
Niger trigger
Blenny
Snowflake eel
Naso tang
Blonde naso
Diamond goby

5 anemones
9 different torches
5 different frogspawns
6 different blastos
2 colonies of Duncan's
Finger leather
Green toadstool
2 wall hammers
Bubble coral

Oz green acro
Red planet
Bonsai
Sky Blue
Tyree matrix
Strawberry shortcake
Walt Disney
Purple dragon
Purple silly string
Sapphire milli
Banana berry milli
Rose milli
Plum crazy
Oregon tort
Cali tort
Blue stag
Christmas acro
Del fuego
Setosa
Purple stylo
Starry night
Blue tenious
Joe's rainbow
Pink lemonade
Crayola Plana
500 efflo
Miami orchid
And many others

Only corals that have survived is most my chalices, acans, favias, zoas, and 5 acros. I've still got my dusamier, regal, vlimingi, chromis, pair of Wyoming whites, melanarus, yellow coris, banghai and pj cardinal. Also the crazy thing is all of my starfish survived (sand sifter, red knobby, blue linkia, fromonia, and mosaic tile)

With that being said I decided to spend Labor day plumbing the 300. Here's what I got so far



More to come soon....

"Afew" and frags should not be in the same sentence.

Still got to figure out how to mount my dosing pump, wire the t5s, install the fans, and wire in the last 2 wave makers. Then onto the DT.

The DT will be powered by 2 RW 20 and 2 RW 15. (Hoping this is enough) (I've got more pumps if needed but really like running less in the DT) Lighting consist of 2 photon 32s (rebuilt thanks to Logan at RB Which has great CS), 2 X retrofit 48" t5s between the overflows, and 2 X retrofit 60" on the front. Still got to figure out how to mount them all.
