When I look at this tank, I think in my mind "oh, its like a 10 gallon cube" but in reality it's so much bigger. Still looks great though! You getting the Kessil or no?

yup, kessil is coming...

Now im looking into their new Tuna Blue color, it's either that or 15k

I have $100 saved up so far, and it looks like I will be ready by May for sure, sry for the wait but im 15 (in a month :rolleyes: ) and $$$ takes time :P

Expect plenty of pics this week as it is Spring Break so I will be working a lot, getting some goodies, and doing some regulatory maintenance :D

EDIT
Changing sig at the moment, critique is welcomed

How come your title says that this is a 38 Gallon tank, but your first post says that it's a 35 gallon tank? :huh:

April 7th Test Results

PO4---0
NO3---2
Ca---400
KH---7


Got a Purple Pseudochromis+two nice SPS frags (tanks pretty much full)
Water quality is good

Im starting to wonder if a Kessil would be overkill (it will be with my current lighting)
I will most likely still get it, but the lamps will be more spread out and higher up :D

Haha in my opinion, way overkill but it is always nice to be able to spread out the lighting.

Well i think I've made my choice, I will be buying a PAR38 Tri Color 18w ReefLamp from LEDTRiC

The Par38's have been working well, and growing SPS so one more with a nice spectrum should be perfect
the Kessil I'm afraid will be too powerful and a little unnecessary

This also means I will be getting the light as soon as I find my wallet (not joking) and also will let me get a ATO or reactor

I plan on getting a 80 degree lamp, why risk getting a expensive Kessil that could bleach my corals when I can add to what's working for less than half the cost?

Very sry to disappoint those who are curious about the Kessil, it appears i will be no help :D

SALE!

Guess who has been put in charge of our 300 gallon Frag System with high output T5's omgomgomg :happydance: omgomgomg

It's 2 shallow/long rectangular tanks,120 each plus a large sump with a huge Vertex Skimmer, reactor, and socks

We currently have about 150 frags plus a few mother colonies, I will be in charge of inventory, water changes, dosing, fragging etc. Very exciting, already started making some improvements

If ur a Nano Reefer stopping by, I can give u quick tour, BTW all Chromis are still kicking (including one runt who just swims in a corner) and eating like a pack of starving wolves :D

Cool tank. Looks great with the LEDs. Never thought to put a dozen chromis in a tank. I like it.
