Current Cardiff with black stand and disco ball 150w hqi pendant.
Upgraded main pump to a Rio 1700+.
Current 1/15th hp chiller being fed by stock cardiff pump throttled down a tad.
25ish pounds of Marshall Island live rock from my old Oceanic 45g.
30lbs of Caribsea aragonite select sized sand
all media removed
stock ato bottles and bottle plate removed
Auto top off dual float switch from autotopoff.com
4 scarlet hermits
2 Astrea snails
4 ultra grade crocea clams
4 Ricordia Yuma colonies (roughly 30 or so polyps)
5 small zoa frags - found under the live rock of my Oceanic 45, at one time I had over 4000+ polyps of zoa's in that tank.
1 supposed blue hammer - customer brought me this hammer and said it was all blue. Only time will tell if that was true.
Now there are a few things I love and hate about this tank. First the build quality is alot better than the Solana. One problem I always had with the Solana was the glass not squaring up and the sloppy silicone job. Not a problem with this tank. I always thought the round disco ball looked goofy on the Solana. The round ball matches the rounded front alot better on the cardiff. Now the bad.... the glass has such an extreme bend that it is an absolute chore to clean and it causes some distortion when viewing. For the first week or so I would get dizzy looking at it. Once I got used to it I don't seem to have that problem.
