2 Years ago my main tank suffered a 2 week long power outtage and I lost everything.. all my clams.. everything. During my time without a tank I'd stop by my LFS every few weeks just to catch up with some of the workers and a good friend who worked there. A few months had past, I decided to drop by again to see what was new and catch up on old times. It was this day I found out my friend, that had worked for over 3 years had taken his own life.

 

A year and some change had past.

 

About a week ago I decided to drop by the same LFS and check out how things were and what was new. Unfortunately the store seemed to be going under without anyone to take care of the "saltwater" section.

 

So here goes another try.. this ones for my buddy Ryan.

 

Specs:

 

20L (I had this as a QT 3 years ago-- hard to find them made with the 3/8" glass + black silicon)

150w Coralife clamp on back light... thingy

2x Korila Nano's

40lbs of Carib Sea Ocean Direct Original Grade

10g Refugium

Red Sea Coral Pro salt

 

Pics:

20L drilled (in my shower hah)

Waiting on the foam to cure so I can spread some epoxy and sand on it.

I just got done "painting" on some epoxy + resin mix and throwing some sand on there. I'll post some pix up tomorrow after it all cures. Maybe we can get some water going on soon =]

Progress so far.. things are looking good. I need to hurry and order my Korlias as I think the current powerhead is making excessive heat.
