thanks guys, and yes it is. when i got it it looked half the size. didn't realize it was gonna expand this big. might have to trade it for a much smaller one.

Any plans to upgrade the lighting? I have 2 stock Picotope lamps that I don't know what to do with...One has never even been plugged in! I'd put them up on the hardware classifieds but I don't think anyone would be interested...lol

Huge mushroom, for sure...Whenever I go coral shopping, I tend to look for the smallest pieces they have...recently I've been interested in buying larger combo rocks and maybe fragging them into smaller pieces...

Nice Tank! :D

Always Tanking

thanks!

i plan on getting an LED light but still trying to decide if i want to go with a par bulb, DIY or even LED strips..
i was actually thinking of maybe adding an extra stock light to the tank but i think ill just wait and do LEDs.

well i was originally going to order a boostPAR38 in the next couple of weeks, but the stock light i had running on the pico gave out on me so i needed a fast replacement. a local reefer was selling an ebay par38 so this is what I'm using for now.

im using chemi-pure Elite and running a 50w tetra(i think) heater

i had it about 11-12 inches from the surface

Im looking into getting a boost par30 do you like it more than the par38 you were running? was there a big difference? and the tank looks great!


i liked both of them but the reason why i went with the boost par 30 was because it had 60 degree optics so i wasnt getting a spotlight look.
