Tank looks great. Blacking out the lights will work, but unless you figure out the source of the cyano and dyno, will keep coming back. More flow can help limit their ability to attach. Also, if you have a Michael's or Hobby Lobby nearby, get some of the crochet mesh to make strainers for your overflows...will keep fish from going down them! Did you keep your lids on? If not, an eggcrate wall along the back the length of the tank and height of the canopy will keep in the potenial jumpers.

Well the dyno went away with black out and 4 straight days of doing at least 5 gallon water changes and on 2 of the days i did 10 gallon water changes. Along with him out of the sump but he is totally hiding lol.

Ya I like the kit alot which I got the meanwhiles or what ever there called the ones that aren't gold. They can be placed on a dimmer for better control and I have the 72 50/50 CW and NW and them 50/50 B and RB along with 4 UVs for a total of 72. I just don't like my drivers all that much but hey they work so if it's not broke don't fix it.

Well i finally pulled the trigger on a LTA its a corkscrew anemone. Its about 9 inches across so good size and its been 24 hours and its got alot of its tan color back and has been in the same spot since i did a PVC base hole for its base to anchor in so finger crossed. Gonna post pics in the next few days want to make sure he is staying there first.

Well got great news the jaw fish made its way through the my overflow to my sump and into the return chamber where I caught him and placed in the display area. He has since settled in and started work on his new home. Also the clown gobies are sleeping in my frogspawn and hammer so they are doing great. Nothing has changed so pics will be coming soon.

Ok so I was curious with my tank if 2 MP10s would be a good fit with my aqua scape that's the same as in the pics? I want to put one on the back and one on the opposite side of the return. I have mostly LPS and want to get the motion that the MP 10s can give I want the rocking back and forth.
