Just have to keep parameters stable. The key is stability. I need to get my doser up for this tank. Been just hand dosing.

here's my 120. It was custom built rimless with starphire built by aquarium obsessed. I wish I never sold this system, but I didn't have the space and time then.

This in the beginning. Can't seem to find pics of it a year later with sps grown out.

ahhh Nice. I see, yeah big tanks...not only do they costs a grip but you also tend to hold over stress overall when taking care of it. This is why people go nano. ahah

Just picked up an innovative marine 16 tank for my clownfish pairs. Split the middle with egg crate and netting. Going to use a HOB refuge for filtration:

Haven't updated in awhile. Started to mount corals and realized I ran out of glue before I could start with the acans. Need to mount them because I literally have almost no space on the sandbed anymore. I lost a few acans and sps during the first day of our 100 degree weather because our AC went down.

First is an updated FTS:

Heard that I just went from a 75 to a 30 gallon rimless shallow. To much maintenace on the 75 for me to keep up with.

 sand is a litter pan <_<

True, true. Larger reefs costs quite the triple and quadriple as well...

But in a full decked out large sps reef it looks insane. Eventually when I buy my own place and I will go back up to a large reef. For now i'm happy with my nano's.

Here's a few acans:

Yeah, I agree. But then again, the pricing still is triple, quadruple and plus.

Took a few pics. Really started loving blasto's recently:

Quick FTS. I actually started mounting corals. Will take another picture once i'm done with mounting.

2 new blasto's I picked up:

Also, the newest addition to the fish family. My baby chevron tang~ Smallest guy in my tank. About the size of a quarter. In a few years he'll be bigger than all them put together.
