Well I want to start a log on everything I do to my new tank. So, Here is a
picture of my new tank on its stand before paint and after. I'm not sure if I'm going to run a filter or try it without one. I'm using a 175Mh.

Order my LR ....14 LBS of Fiji premium ....from http://www.oceanproaquatics.com/...I read a few people here order from them and are real happy with what they got. Here's a shot with water..... Not running the MH right now....nothing in there to use it anyway.

Sorry, I guess your right. It's a 10.6gal glass tank made from 3 pieces. The sides and front are 1 piece with curves. I've never seen them before but, I'm sure someone else has.

175 Hm 20K pendant.
I also, have a 192w pc or a 64w pc that I could use if the Mh becomes too much or isn't work for the tank for some reason.

100 w heater
2 - 201 powerheads.

Thats it. I'm trying the "Nature filtation" System just LR, LS(which wll be mixed with the black sand thats in there now) and water changes. I want to keep a little of everything and maybe a clam. But,
i'm going to start with the easy stuff and work my way up.
Also, the MH will be hanging over the tank not sitting the acrylic panel that it's on now.


If anything looks out of line let me know....Input is good.

I'm waiting for my LR and LS to come which will be here Tomorrow. It s fully cured so I'm hoping for a short cycle. Anyway, I've been looking at corals. I want to know if out of the ones I like which are going to be good for a small tank and I'm trying to pick some that will not be too hard to keep. So, I'll give a few links and you guys can look and tell me what you think....I'm not set on the ones that I list exactly but, more just the family. I may not ever have all of these but, I'm trying to get and Idea of what I want, howto care for them, which can be kept together and create a time line of what I will put them in the tank.

Also, I'm just using the site in the links below for this posting and I'm not trying to sell anything from it...I don't work for them!

I got my LR and LS this afternoon. I like it but, I'm not sure if its enough for the tank. I really like the way it looks but, take a look what do you think? the LFS has some Tongo Branch on sale I was think of just getting 1 or 2 Pieces to fill in.

P.S. the water is a little cloudy. Once it clears up I'll get some more shots.

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I added a CPR Bakpak. I was having trouble with Nitrates and once I added it they dropped to 0. I will post pictures once I have the clean up crew in. Should be tomorrow.
