And before anyone complains about the bleached brain and acans, A friend gave them to me because they weren't doing well in his tank and they are already coloring back up for the most part.

Sweet tank.. I love the style of the large cubes. It will be awesome once it grows out some more. Looks like at this point you can sit back and enjoy! (like that will happen)

How big is your sump?

Looks like the brain is deffinately salvagable - even the acan - i didn't see anything sticking through the flesh. Hope they do well for you.

The sump I made out of a 15G long tank.

Here's a pic from when it was first setup.

I replaced the heater with a Visi-Therm stealth and there's more chaeto, mangroves and a skimmer in there now.

The brain is nice and puffy, look really healthy except the color, but its coming back.

The one acan is a little slow to recover but the others are looking great!

I've still got plans to pack a lot more coral in there though.

2-Tier frag rack in sump!

I'm working on finding a used 70 watt halide setup for some in-sump frag tank mayhem.

I have:

- 1 Starry Blenny
- 1 Amphiprion Ocellaris
- 1 Amphiprion Percula (misbar)
- 2 Sexy Shrimp
- 1 Cleaner Shrimp

I am planning on adding:

- Male/Female pair of either mccoskers, carpenters or some similar flasher wrasse
- Potentially a pygmy angel if I can find a caribbean or flameback that behaves with corals.
- Anemone Crab
- Acro Crab?

Not sure what else, more focused on the SPS collection at the moment. When I get paid friday I'm hoping to pick up frags of ATL Incredible Hulk Acro, WOW Blue Acro, Dr Mac's Kentucky Bluegrass Acro and some gates of hell leptastrea.

They try to rotate meeting locations to make it accessible to as many members as possible.
