This tank will change greatly from right now as i start to go towards LE coral in the future with higher flow so check back frequently. So i bought this from another member lastnight and set it up today. Please excuse the pics since everything is still pissed off and settling, i still have to siphon the bottom to make it a true barebottom lol. Frags are def not in final placement but wanted to get them back in a tank before they got really upset lol. Also got a few pics of my Filament Flasher Wrasse i picked up from SWC few days ago, hes been shy past few days but seems to really like this new settup bc ive never seen him out so much. I will be adding some more choice rock once everything settles, also the tank doesnt look level but it actually is the water level looks higher on the left side bc of all the flow from the Tunze.

They are $799 new with the light, i bought mine from a member in Atlanta Reef Club my local club, it is only 3 months old, i took the discoball pendant off bc i bought the geismann 150w from Flinster bc i like this look better. Check your local clubs for a good used deal, there is another for sale in my club right now.

Well hopefully everyone enjoyed the black sand bc today i took everything out of my tank and removed all of the black sand went back to a barebottom lol. The tahitian moon is just too fine for the amount of flow i want to put in the tank. Soon this will be an SPS and Clam Dominated tank. Also rearranged the rockwork today. Pics soon to follow

 

 

 

 

 

Stay tuned...
