Congrats on the little one!!

Seems like just yesterday we were at the hospital waiting for our little Abby.

Love your tank, very clean looking build. I will be keeping a eye on yours as-well.

Ok I got the light done and added seed rock and water to the tank.

I still need to add moonlights to the light at some point. I also decided to just make a mount for it in case we decide to move the tank to another location.

Week one of the cycle is complete.

No diatom's yet and no spike.

I really need to get the lid made for this thing. I am topping off 2 times a day.

I would like to ATO it but I'm not sure how I would safely store a reservoir.

I need some type of sealed container to sit on the floor.

 

Other then that the tank is running great and the lights too. I still have adding moonlighting and quieting the fan down on my list of TO DO's.

 

Can't wait to add a fish and coral to this thing. Abby loves my clowns in the other tank but I have no idea what to put in this one. :unsure:

What are you running there in terms of LED's? Looks like you might have two rows of 5, alternating with royal blue and white.......

My whites put off 160lm each and my blues are 60lm each.

Not yet. I was thinking I wanted to go simple and do a zoanthid garden but I may throw in some cool acans and chalice pieces now because they are available to me locally cheap.

 

I need some ideas for a fish

A yellowtail blue damsel would be cool. Bright and durable.

 

This is really looking like a cool tank. I've got 7 weeks to finish up my 40b before my daughter is born.

 

I think I've already figured out what she's getting for her first b-day... Hahaha!

 

Do you have any details on the LED build (like a separate thread)? Looks cleeeeeeean btw.

I remember seeing one a while back on here made out of the white acrylic and thinking how nice it looked. This is just a simple 1" square aluminum bar from the hardware store a 40mm fan and some acrylic.

Tank looks fantastic that is for sure. Your skills are amazing, been following this thread. Saw that you were looking for a fish, maybe a nice pair of Trimma rubromaculatus, not super extravagant but could provide some interest.

Wow, i can't believe it only a 1 strip light running on 5 Cree lights only! What kind of corals can you put in the tank with that amount of lights?

 

i wish i have all the tools that i can cut up and make fixture clean and simple as you instead of handmade. :(:)

My whites put out 160lm which is a bit more then the Cree but even with just the 5 LED's I don't think I will have any issues adding whatever I want.

 

We will see!!!
