Sweet vid, I watched it twice! But the brownie points are for that tropical backround on your photobucket page. ;)

Always Tanking

Tank needs some critters!!!!


Yes...yes it does, I have a few hermits and snails in there but I guess they did not make an appearance :unsure:
I can't add any corals until Sunday :(

Looks great!!!!! You never disappoint your fans :)

Yep :)

I don't know what year that song came out...but it reminds me of the summer before I went away to college. 1990.

Maria!!!
Beautiul little tank. I wish i had the talent to "just throw rocks in there" and have them land like that!
Contests always get my blood to stirring! Have to resist the urge since last time I got disqualified for spending too much money, and was guilty as charged!
Good luck. Can't wait to see what corals you put in. I think you can't beat those little LED bulbs over pico's. I've proved to myself that they support coral growth. As for the complaint that you can't get color selection, I just received some of the "cheap Chinese ebay led's" that seem very well made and are little (3-1W to a bulb) that might give you the options you seek with cluster of them.

YB!! :flower:
Thanks for stopping in :) are you changing the light on your tank? I have to catch up on your thread -_-
I don't think there is a limit on this contest or I would be S.O.L already lol

Yes, I'm going led's, stepwise, on my new tank. From a 40L biotope to a 200g shallow cube.
There's a link on RC about cheap chinese ebay led's. I'm testing them to see if they are worth anything. Otherwise I'll slowly DIY from RapidLED and BoostLED, replacing the T-5's as I go. Hopefully I can keep it from being too "Franken-light-ish".
I'll be rooting for you. While I'm swearing off multiple tank setups hopefully, I may do a pico in the future, so I'll be learning from this contest! Good Luck!!!

This one is a nice half dollar size -_- this is my second one...they like a lot of flow so I will put it where the flow from the HOB comes out and see how it does, I imagine a leather in this sized tank would grow pretty fast..

I made an acrylic lid for mine.. I haven't really seen a lot of evap. My HOB is a alarm for water level cause it makes noise when it gets to low from the surface skimmer and sucks air :lol: I am thinking of doing the gerbil bottle ATO but it's so ugly :mellow:
