Damn that is some clear clear water.
This thread and your tank was a major contributor to adding UV to my build aha
Awesome, I hope you're seeing good results, I can't believe it took me nearly a decade to start using them, I'm a huge fan now!
Beautiful tanks. I'm extremely jealous of your reef. I had a 20gal reef and it was just too much maintenance compared to my 75g low tech planted. From trying to match salinity and temp, then pouring with buckets. Though, I'm convinced, if I invested in the correct equipment, it would have gone much smoother. I tried to do budget reef, just more work in the end. I only now have the planted low tech and planning to build a nano riparium.
I honestly think the saltwater is easier. I hardly even touch the tank other than changing filter socks, topping off the ATO reservoir, and cleaning the glass. I do a big water change every other month.
I do have a good setup in place for making saltwater and doing water changes which definitely helps. 150gpd BRS RODI system, 25gal rolling mixing / WC station, have my salt amount dialed in precisely for that system (normally only takes slight Sg adjustments), and use a Sicce 400gph pump, and Eheim 1/2" plastic filter pipe and screen, and a ball valve for refilling. Not having to lift buckets makes it a breeze. I think if you go back a few pages I have pics of it all.
My planted tanks are more problematic and more work. The reef is a breeze
