So excited about the new coral I am trying to find the energy to clean the house while I wait!

Hmmmmm Dishes vacuum and mop, then grocery shop if I get time.....

Oh I will also have more pics of the stand build this weekend. We should be finishing it this weekend! :D

You have spoiled us with the frequent pic dump! Yes, we want to see the stand!!!

When I made the stand for my 65 gal african tank, I made it six inches wider all around.

Yeah it's 48" long, and 28" wide. The height was decided by A and it is WAY taller then what I wanted but the tank will be at eye level now.

Soon I promise.

That stand has perfect dimentions! It will be nice to have an area to put your beer and a shot while you're watching the tank. Also, sounds like it might be bar stool height!

This tank basically just exploded. Like for a while, it was on the same level as my tank and other decent tank's but you're gaining momentum and going to be hitting totm quality soon.

I totally agree with Joel. Randi...you have the magic touch with reef keeping. I can't wait to see this set up in the 40 breeder. How much less height will you have with the 40B?

This has been one of my favorite tanks for awhile now. It's gorgeous!

Thanks so much! I am flattered, as this is my first reef tank attempt I am pretty impressed with myself. And the Tron corals really made a HUGE difference! It wouldn't look this way without him!

I am truly flattered by you guys, I love my tank but I don't think it is anywhere near TOTM for at least a year from now. I need some growout first. ;)


I will be going from 36x16.5x24 to 36x18x18. So the lights will be WAY closer to the corals so better penetration (guys behave) and more depth so I will have more sand bed. I am thinking about going with the regular 40# LS in the 40B and running a DSB in the Fuge. Say close to 4" deep, 15 mangroves or so and a TON a Macro with a damsel or 2 and a shrimp.

Stand WILL be completed this weekend. ;)

Thanks you guys, needed a smile the last case of the day was pretty grim, didn't look good for the old dog and I can't stop thinking about the poor old guy. :(
