Tank looks cool so far. B) I cant wait to see all those corals grow and fill out the tank. It will look really nice then. Thanks for the pics!

 

How deep is the sandbed in the tank? Do you have problems with the crabs' shells or anything scratching the acrylic?Also, does the tank stay around 79 degrees just from the lighting or is there a heater somewhere?

the sand bed is about an inch because the tank was designed with a square in the middle as you can see http://reviews.petco.com/3554/106657/reviews.htm

the crabs shells unfortunately will scratch the acrylic.

but you can only see it if your looking for it...

the tank stays at 80 flat during the day and it goes to 79 at night.

my room is rather cold so the light keeps it warm enough but doesnt overheat it.

Nice tank, It looks like a mini ALO. Where did you get your tank from?

 

And is that a fender guitar I see in one of your pics?

cutest little tank ever! You could get one of those mini feather duster clusters...it would give pretty movement to the tank! Or a small "christmas tree" rock. SAme idea.

 

+1 on the sexies.
