Thanks man! Very loosely planned, but I am thinking: pair of clowns, yasha shimp goby pair, and a pair of harlequins so far.

Oh you saw that eh ;)? My dad got me that for $10 at a yard sale :D!!!

This tank is pretty incredible, after being in this hobby for almost 4 years I wanted to upgrade ;)

corals?


Oh, well I will have one bubble tip anemone (not a coral I know haha).

I will have a lot of SPS colonies, I want a lot of Euphyllia colonies, my plate coral, zoanthids and acanthastrea of course.

The tank itself is 20g so less than the entire system of my 24g, but with the sump it is equal or holds more. Also, this tank has more usable space within the tank than my aquapod.

If you were into the puberty phase, you'd be a ####ing neckbeard. Get out of here you ####ing tween #### ##### ass mother####er stupid ##### bastard ####er chicken leg pride rally supporter. Get out of here with your poverty opinions you ####ing ice cream sandwich stupid #### ##### alter ego reported for harassing me and I messaged the FBI and I left Obama a voicemail and wrote a postcard to your parents.
Enjoy not posting you giant neckbeard looooser.

Do you even logic?

Well to each their own, I had trouble photographing through curved glass, plus I had trouble cleaning it. Plus, I have had that tank for 3 years, time for a change.
