Nice tank! I am ordering my solana this week with the 250 W sunpod. Nice to see what 35# live rock looks like. Did you order it online? Are you starting a refugium in the back?

 

OOPS just saw you are starting a fuse.

Hey Jason,

Just checkin in, have you added anything to your tank? I am still cycling and considering an ATO those bottles do not work! I love my solana and the light, no temp problems at all (well one time when I forgot to put my fans on). How long has it taken for yours to cycle? Or are you still cycling? I havent ran my skimmer yet, have everything on timers, and have lots of HH's. Are you going to leave the top off or have some egg crate or mesh? I think I will start a new thread once my tank cycles. Hope all is good with your tank,

Ryan

Watch that green birds nest at the bottom. It might just look that way in the pic, but it appears to be losing tissue. Also, your "Hydro" is a Hydno (Hydnophora). The Acro Millepora should also have a color other than white.

but sadly, my tank crashed when all my corals died after my tank got into the mid 90's during a freak heat wave here that lasted for a week and i was on vacation..well i finally got around to take some pics and here's my revived solana :)

 

i decided to go with more sps this time around along with my lps and clams still

hey jason,

great looking tank! i recently got myself a 34g solana and had a lighting question for you. ive been trying to figure out what is the largest/heaviest light fixture i can use on the edges of the tank. i see by the pictures and tank specs that your're running the outer orbit. Which size fixture is that? Have you had any or heard of any problems with weight?

 

thanks jason,

any help would be appreciated

 

 

keep up the good work,

brandon
