I'm not much of a BB tank fan but yours is a nice looking tank. I like the color variation you have as well. Good Job!

I had a 14k phoenix. I liked it but wanted to try the Radium. I think the radium is a brighter blue color. Here are some comparison pics I did in another thread.

Looking great...the progression has been fun to watch


I really like the two rock formations with the channel thru the middle. Looks like you are getting some great polyp extension out of your stonies.

Thanx for looking Tudd. The tank is pretty much on auto. Do my weekly 20% water change with NutriSea Seawater. ATO is working top notch. Got the new clam on a recommendation of a friend to get one that is 3 inches. I kept getting smaller ones and he said they are harder to keep because they actually need to be fed, where the larger ones will be okay with the Sunpod. So far so good.

As i recall i got a beat down for my MIL having a clown in her 5.5/6g.
Apparently having some T&A might save me from the clownfish police.
