all in due time they will grow over.

 

Thinking the next purchase will be a plate coral.

 

Then round it off with a T.Crocea

picked up a 72 bow. This does not mean the end of the pico, it just means a new tank

hey so how is the heat in the nova casing? no fan required? I've been thinking about retro fitting mine too, and I ran into your thread.

cool to the touch even after 8+ hours of operation.

 

I have a spare nova lying around that i can retro a kit into if you so desired.

So i've been neglecting the tank for the past 2 week (ie no water changes). Paramters are still stable (temp sg) water chem still reads zero across the board.

 

Im off for the next 8 days, so a w/c & maybe a visit to the lfs for a frag. IDK.

Thanks but wont need. I have a nova as well. I'm just trying to figure out if it will light my 12AP with led using that fixture or if I need something more wide to get better coverage.

just a brief text update

 

 

 

Tank is doing well, even with all the bellow freezing weather we have been having here. Everything is happy & opening up nicely. I can barely see a baby ric (picture would be almost impossible) Gsp is loving the led lighting, mushroom........ well not so much.

 

 

Thats about all i got for now.

Not much to say here other than i've slacked off with the weekly w/c's. Been about 3 weeks. Params are all still very stable. Having a lid really helps with evap.

 

Bleh, i need more coral
