Rimless 17G AIO Shallow Reef - Updated FTS 9/19/11

I finally got around to setting up my Advance Acrylics AIO tank. This is an upgrade from my Fluval Edge that I started around May of this year. Working with the Edge proved too difficult for me. I luckily bought an AA tank before John disappeared from Ebay. This will eventually be my frag tank once I get my 40Br up and running.

 

I like a lot of addicted reefers on this board took advantage of Petco's dollar per gallon sale. I bought the 40Br as my Display tank and 20L as my Sump/Refugium. I'm looking forward to expanding this post as the tank progresses.

 

Thanks!

Enjoy

Here are some quick shots from my smart phone. Sorry the picture quality sucks. I don't have a good camera right now.

I moved everything over from my Fluval Edge and acquired a lot of new live stock from fellow reefers who were breaking down their tanks. I know I may be overstocked at the moment but most of it will end up in the 40br. This will end up as my frag tank.

 

Let me know what you think!

 

Oh I'm getting some new corals tomorrow from J ranko!

Yea the birds nest and acro are my least favorite corals in my tank. The birds nest was much larger but I sold it and kept a frag. Only reason I'm keeping the acro is for my yellow goby. That's his spot! I need to sell it off though, I'm running out of real estate.

 

And thanks guys for the comments. With all the time and money spent on this new hobby, I needed some validation.

thanks Hotshot for the kind words. The tank has changed SOOO much since the last pictures. Sold a lot of the corals lately. Going to the coral farmers market this weekend, so I'm hoping to get a bunch of good stuff. i'll post an update on Monday.
