Here's my first crack at a design and would love to have comments-- as I'm not sure I'm doing everything right. If you have some time, please take a look a the design:

Hey Chip, did you get the inline dimmer for the LED's yet?
pretty sure that "gsp" is actually an encrusting gorgonian.. the poylps have the little fins on them. and they are a thinner than gsp polyps.
they spread a lot faster too
yeah its the gorg.. at least i'm like 95% sure
also note the oral disk in the middle of GSP
and its not there in gorgs its more of a tight dot
love your signature icons!

Thanks. I took quite awhile to figure it all out. One of the neat things about it is the return line from the the pump overflow works great for providing a tumbling action for the Chaeto.
Wow that is quite the plumbing job!
The aquarium is a most unique Bending Glass Tank AQUA H20 AQ-35 3.5 gallon aquarium. It was the last one at the LFS, and had been sitting on the shelf for quite some time. I cannot find mention of another one like it anywhere on the Internet. Has anyone else seen this one?
I think I have the same type of aquarium! If so I love it, very unique. Corners are rounded in the front and squared in the back? Check out my thread!
I don't see where anyone addressed your glass cleaning question from Jan 30. I always get compliments on my clean pico glass and I use Scott paper towels (no scents or chemicals that tend to streak) and distilled water. I either soak and pretty well dampen with distilled water depending on salt creep. Then use another paper towel to dry. Or if it is not to bad and to detail clean I use a microfibre with a little distilled water on it to buff. BTW you have a cool tank. I've had a fluval spec for over a year and love it with a pistol goby pair. In process of going nano also with a Nuvo 16.
really like some of your new corals there guy.so it seems youve done pretty well so far.its not that hard of a hobby.does anyone from your family stop by to see your tank .......or freinds?if so what do they think?
hey chipp, that's a really cool lookin overflow. I checked out your video too and it looks great. I'm not sure if it's been addressed yet, but I feel like it's a bit abnormal that your corals close up for days after water changes. I don't think it's the fact that they're exposed to air since I used to have a 2.5 gallon that I would completely drain for water changes, but all corals would be open again within a few hours. What kind of salt are you using? And you might want to test parameters of your tank at the end of each 2 week period between water changes because parameters swings is probably what's doing it.
unless salts not mixed long enough
