Actually a dance would be nice... But I think stocking plans/system goals might be good too.

 

This should be interesting I've never really seen a tank with a white BG before. Do you have a specific reason for going white?

well its about time for a update. got the plumbing done everything goes well just trying to tweak some things on the overflow to make it more quiet. I ran a auxillary manifold so can run up to 3 reactors and my display fuge. built a overflow cover so nuthen can sneak into the box and clog the drain and it silences the gurgling a bit. Just need to finishes skinning the stand i have the side panels done just need some wood for the doors. I wanna try to make just 2 doors that can pop on and off. for the meantime just letting everything run for a couple weeks making sure everything is working good. heres some pics..

Tank looks amazing and kudos on going with a white overflow and back glass...definitely the first time I've seen anything besides blue and black.

 

Looks awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I thought about buying this same tank when I was looking for tanks in December. Glad to see someone brought one...beautiful tank!

Thanks guys this tank is definetly in its infancy just transferred all the corals and cuc from the 10g to the 67 today everything is running good it was nice not haveing a cycle. water is crystal clear with this big a$$ skimmer.

my plans is to get another reactor for bio-pellets and eventually get a mp10 or 2 mp10's to replace the koralias.

also going to run some led gu10 bulb in with the t5's making a hybrid, gunna finish with a floating black canopy and skin the stand black. and removing the trim.

 

stocking list:

2 naked clowns

3 green chromis

midas blenny

wrasse(undecided)

 

corals:

Mixed corals mostly sps eventually

 

inverts:

rainbow urchin and zebra crab

emerald crabs

conches

hermits snails

candycane pistol(will prob get a goby for him)

I like the BB!

 

 

it would be cool if it was sparkling clean but its 2 days old and theres crap all over, looks bad.

 

and quick update just got a trio of green chromis, nuthen special 2 are happy and eating but the 3rd is shy and hiding he'll prob come out in the morning.

 

And just got the brightwell Katalyst bio-pellets today and set them up in the reactor, well see how they do, i guess it takes a few weeks for the bact. to grow on them
