So after taking a break for a while and letting my tanks go to poo, I have finally decided to bring my reef back to life. I was looking at my poor tank about a month ago and wondering what happened that I let it get in such a state...life...that's what happened lol So here is my start, I replaced the PC's with a cheapy T5 Odyssea unit for now till I can save up for some LED's :P I have 2x blue plus, 1x aquablue and 1x super actinic. I used this bulb combo before with great results. I have my MP10 on the way from DF&S.

Equipment- I do the KISS method - no sump
Odyssea 48" T5HO
2x DF&S HOB w/surface skimmer
Vortech MP10
100w heater

Livestock -
Flame Angel
Lyretail Anthias
3x Blue Streak Cardinals
3x True Percs
Royal Gramma
Yellow watchamn
Cherub pygmy angel
Green Clown Goby (that I hardly ever see <_< )
Masked Goby
Porcelain Crab
Decorator crab (hitch hiker)
lots of snails and hermits

The flame has been good so far, it is still small tho. I am keeping an eye on it for sure.

I only have 2 common macros in my 125g reefs sump...red titan, prolifera...not really looking for macros at the moment :P

Yay :happydance:

I will, it actually ate the first day I got it, I was very surprised considering the reason I never got one was because I heard that they have a problem eating in captivity...I fed frozen cyclopeeze.
I will take plenty of pix...u know how I roll lol :lol:

I also want to add that after 2 weeks with the Odyssea T5 light fixture I am very impressed.
I would recommend it to anyone on a budget :) Not bad for $109 shipped :P and $90 in bulbs.
