Prairie Reef Project 2: 300gallon sps, nem tank build.

PRP 1 was a 75 gallon learner tank. Mistakes were made, maintenance was a pain, weed corals were a pain, but all of those lessons are starting this project with a sump up design focused on ease of maintenance.

The dream...

Prairie Reef Project 1 was a learner, Frankentank of mismatched second hand parts, plumbing ignorance, and maintenance headaches. In short all the first timer mistakes including letting GSP into my tank and having to use a wet/dry vac and hoses draped all over the house to do water changes. At 75 gallons it was a compromise tank - too large to be simple, too small for a lot of livestock and rock work. It was beautiful, loved it, but I out grew it and in 2014 took it down - rehomed my beloved pets...
