Sold my 110 gal tank and my 2 mated pairs of discus for a grand total of 600 bucks and headed To my Lfs (House of Tropicals) had to give them props. Here we are 5 years later but with my newest tank and adventure, a 14g biocube.

The Leds are already in it. Lol. Well the tank is only 3 months old, the rock and clowns came from another system that ran for over a year, but no corals in that tank. So i swiched it all over, w new live sand, cycled it, (didnt take long, i used ten gals from other tank, 4new gallons) and then started stocking. And here we are. Make sense? I got the cube in mid november.
