Ah! Good luck with it. I got mine a couple of weeks ago. Did you order the glass cover for it, out of curiosity?

I've had a few issues with mine that I noted in my own tank thread. If you've better luck figuring it out than I have, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!

I checked out your thread. I'll tinker with the lid when I get mine and let you know if I'm able to get it to work.

So I'm working on planning out what livestock I will add to this tank. At the moment I have a Clown Goby Citrinis and 3 Sexy Shrimp in my JBJ Pico. They will go into this new tank. I'm thinking 3 fish total would be a good number. I know that I would like a True Perc. But I was curious about the Flasher Wrasses like the Carpenter's and McCosker's. Is this tank too small for a Flasher Wrasse? If not, would one devour my sexy shrimp?

Look forward to seeing your build.I wouldnt trust one around a sexy shrimp. ..That tank might be a little too small for a flasher...they are very active swimmers.

Thanks! I will scratch flasher wrasse's off of my list.

Go for a pair of true perc's. Mine are only juveniles now, but it is really exciting watching their true colors come out. No pun-intended.

 

ps: I will be following along, us southern reefers need to stick together :)

Looks nice. I really wish they made stands for larger sized tanks.

Lol, I put mine together, and laughed the whole time. The cam locks are made out of plastic. WTF. If it wasn't for the bazillion brackets that you put on the bottom, I wouldn't think that it would hold anything. I also had to leave the shelves out of mine so I can fit the sump :angry:

STILL have not heard back from CADLights. WTF! :angry:

 

They are slower than crap and are getting worse IMO. I have the cad22 and I love my tank. The only thing that I am not happy with is my false wall in the back came loose and needs to be reglued. The tank is about 6 mo old when that happened. I did not see the point in contacting them about it because when I first got the tank the light melted the bulb and almost started a fire. I emailed them about the problem and they told me that they would be sending me a new one to replace it. I am still waiting on it 8 mo later. I dont think that it is going to show up now. Like I said I like the tank but I will not be purchase anything else from them because of the customer service.

Well that's disconcerting. I thought I had read here and elsewhere that they provided good customer service. Guess I was wrong... dammit!
