Nice! I like both scapes, but the second gives you way more open space.

i've been topping off with a SW mix instead of RODI and slowly the sg is coming up, its at 1.023 now. i purchased a bucket of Red Sea Coral Pro and plan on mixing my own next time. last night i picked up a ball of chaeto and tossed it in the fuge. im not sure if it had much life in it so i may just dump in a bottle of pods so they can start populating before adding any fish. CUC to come this weekend :D

JBJ ATO came in today. salinity is slowly coming up. i mixed some water to 1.027, my tank is still 1.023. this weekend im going to get my CUC. i may grab a frag too, a LFS has had some digitata and they're going quickly. i asked how much and the said $10, its about 2.5" unmounted green with orange polyps. i'm also pretty sure i've decided on a tailspot blenny, my LFS regularly has them for $20.

i've got my MP10ES laying around for my cube build that im thinking of placing in here :D would i be crazy to do this?

Yay I picked up a small CUC, I'm planning on a few more. I also got a 2-3" digitata frag, looks like a forest fire digitata, for $10 :)

Thanks devil

Unfortunately the free frag pack didn't work out, someone offered some money and the seller took it. I am going to pick up a few hammer heads this week

the hammer is doing awesome in the tank. last night i had a 2.5hr journey to get a nice 15+ head acan frag and a nice Garf bonsai frag. i moved the digitata a little further back in the tank. i'll prolly move the Garf up a little higher after a few days and move the acan out from the semi shaded spot. i also noticed a little star on my glass today :cool:

so far so good with the RSCP. it's easy and clean to mix. all my parameters are looking good with it. i was just using LFS brewed water before and im sure this is much better
