History

This tank has been through a lot. The past two years have seen upgrades in lighting, circulation, and rock! The best upgrade I made for this tank was probably my Sunpod. I had always been interested in SPS coral, but sadly was not able to keep them. My next favorite upgrade has got to be my Vortech. At first, I got it more for aesthetics; the quality was a nice bump as well. Now, with my coral growing and taking up so much room, I would not be able to have enough flow and fit the old Koralias I had.

 

The Plan

This tank has been an amazing experience. I have recently added a pair of Yasha Gobies, though I unfortunately do not have a picture of them because they are still hiding. I don't think I will be adding many more corals or fish to this tank, time to sit back and enjoy. Keeping it running for the next two years is the plan, and then it is off to college! It may seem a little obvious, but I plan on studying marine biology. I don't think there are many other choices that seem right to me.

Also, I got TOTM. I feel special.

pop it off with a pointy object like a razor blade.

 

Always a good idea to keep superglue gel and putty in-stock!

I wonder if that mediabuckets guy sells that stuff. Time to go to steviet.com....

 

 

Haha I should, and it would look a lot better. I hate frag plugs.

 

 

Wait do you have to have both the glue and the putty??? I did look in your thread but I am a lazy person and one or the other would be easier.

Super glue is the stickem

Putty is the void fill. This prevents you from over using superglue to fill in holes void areas in rocks.

If you do pop that acro off go ahead and glue it down in the same position it is in now. By laying it down like that more corallites are exposed upwards and you will get more branches started.
