So the deal was that if I made A/B honor role then my mom would get me a Biocube HQI. Well, I've done some thinkning and I decided to get the RSM 130D. She agreed so its good. I've made honor role and we're probably getting it thursday afternoon. omgomgomg Plans are to use my 12g and pretty much transfer everything and take down the NC. My only reservation was my crocea clam, but if StevieT can do it so can I. :D Rockscpae is going to be a few pieces on the sandbed, and have majority on that so I have a lot of sandbed, but also a lot of rock. My LFS has theor RSM like that. We'll see how it looks (might change). Plenty of pics to come!!!!!!!!!!!

I would recommend getting the new big tank setup and cycled with some new LR (you're gonna need extra anyway) and stabolized before transfering everything over. esp the clam...

Right. I'll have them setup side by side for about 6 months running as separate tanks. :)

K. So I got the Red Sea Max!! Love the end result but this is NOT a "plug and play" system. An hour of setup later, and my red sea max was ready for water. Heater sucks. Took an hour to heat the water from 69 to 70, so now I can finally put my LR in cuz the temp is about 75. Not hating on this system. I LOVE IT. I'm just a little disappointed in ease of setup. However, once setup, great!!

 

I really like my rockscape. Will post pics tomorrow if i can. :D

 

EDIT: Turns out stock heater is not that bad. Just slow to heat the water. It does a good job of maintaining temp though :)

K. So checked params and no nitrite or ammonia and 20ppm Nitrate. I added some coral from my 12g. Most of them considered pests and I have plenty of them. This includes: Yellow Polyps, GSP, a Mushroom and Toadstool Leather

 

Here are the pics! :D

I decided to add a refugium. I had some supplies laying around and I'm not such a good DIYer, so this is what I came up with.

So will this grow anything? Or will I have have to get some more of the lights from Lowes?

Daleo!

 

I'm loving the 'scape. That Totoka from Star is SICK. I can't believe how much surface area and purple goodness comes with that stuff. I ended up with a little new-tank syndrome after a couple months, but it cleared up quickly, and now I'm getting tons of purple coraline from that LR.

 

I'm excited to see how your fuge goes. I've been considering that for a while myself, but haven't had the courage to try it out yet.

 

Tank is looking good. If you see anything in my tank you want frags of, just let me know and we can hook it up.

 

Best wishes

Cool.

 

YES! I would love to swap some frags! I will look around on your thread some to see if there is anything that i'd like to get.

 

I can't wait to see the coraline algae growth. Also the pods. :) It is crazy porous!

Tomorrow I wil probably get a B&W clown and some clean up crew. I know its not advisedto put any fish in this early but I already have some coral that is doing fantstically so far, so I don't think a fish will be stressed.

 

New to the RSM:

Yellow polyps

Green Star Polyps

Zoas

Candy cane coral

Pulsing Xenia

 

My Xenia is pulsing in the new tank :D and the Candy cane coral swelled up and was happy. I think it likes the new lower flow. I'll most likely put my frogspawn and torch in there tonight so that the clown has something to host.

 

Pics tomorrow!

O ya I forgot to recommend star aquatics. They cut me a deal for ~20 heads of sun coral for $30. Killer deal IMO!

I take back what I said about the stock heater. Mine took forever to heat up the water, but it does a good job keeping the tank at that temp. AND it is the first heater that I've owned that kept the water at the temp on the dial. Even my stealth heater was not good at that. :)

The fuge light never really worked. The LED light wasn't enough, and when I got a new light, all the macro algae died... So i'm just getting a tunze 9002 and moded skimmer cup when I get the money.
