Looks great thus far, but you forgot one important thing-a FTS.

OK got the FTS in there.

 

What I like about this tank is the rock and sand do everything. (a little filter floss in the AC50 keeps the big particles down).

 

I eventually want to put a fuge in the AC50.

 

I tried Halimeda in the BC14, but it didn't last long (maybe 2 months). I was thinking I would like some macro in the front, instead of the AC50.

 

Any ideas?

Coming along nicely. I'm starting to see some growth with corals.

 

I don't run anything but the live rock, and maybe a glob of filter floss after water changes.

 

I feed once a week.

 

I have a small issue with green "dust" on the sand but only after the full light cycle. The cerith snails eat it up.

 

I'm very happy with it thus far. Tons of little life around (snails, worms, pods, etc.)

Why isn't one tank enough?

 

Upgraded my 10G to this 15G AIO I made.

Thank you.

 

The rocks just kind of fit together like that.

 

The nice thing is it's an island, so there is just as much room behind the rock as there is in front.
