:huh:

 

Hah yea,

I'm kinda jumping the gun here since I don't have anything to take a picture of...deal with it. Everything I have listed I purchased about an hour ago so it will be here soon enough.

I do not plan on dismantling this or upgrading in a few months like all of my other tanks, I promise. This one will be sticking around for awhile!

 

I have no definite plans on livestock just yet and I'm open to suggestions. As of right now I'm thinking LPS dominated mixed reef with a small goby or a pair. The only thing I'm positive on is a small fungia.

Well I got the order today from BoostLED and while I am very happy with the look and color and everything about the bulb...the goosnek was broken when opened the box :(

I emailed them and explained what I found. I hear good things about their customer service so I'm hoping for the best. Other than it being broken, the whole setup looks very nice!

Sucks that it's broken. I'm sure they'll make it right. Can't wait to see this tank up and running!

Yes I know these photos aren't all that exciting... Just playing around with the camera

 

Camera junkies please criticize my photos so that when the time comes to take pics of coral n such I can make the right changes.

Got some rock and water today! The haven't done much with the scape yet but its definitely going to get changed. Its surprisingly difficult to scape in such a small space.

 

Still need to get some dry sand but at least I got the rocks in there to get this going.

I put some dry sand in the tank around a week ago.

I went through a short cycle since getting the rocks and I'm now getting some nice algae growth. Going to the LFS today to see what I can snag for a cuc.

Not crazy about the scape, to be honest. It lacks any definition and doesn't look natural at all. Also, those bulky black hoses don't help too much in terms of the looks. If I were you I'd make a nice looking "pile" of rocks around the hoses, which would make things look more clean (this is an ADA after all) and you could probably do something cool with the 'scape.

 

I'm not trying to be rude at all, I'm just giving my own 2 cents.

I just picked up 2 sexies and a small cuc.

 

As for coral...I'd like a head of frogspawn and a small plate but other than that i'm not sure.

 

Very awesome.

 

Thanks bud

Haha thanks a lot...

 

But really you're right. I have every intention of changing the scape. I havent really done much with it aside from putting the rocks in there and standing one of them up next to the overflow.

 

I'll figure something out with it. The hoses, as you said, are intrusive.

Wow, looks great now! Love the new scape. It could be cool if you could mount some Zoa or GSP frags on those hoses. That could cover them up even better.

I like the old scape as well, but the new scape is definitely better. It not only hides the returns, but it looks really good in general. Good job dude. Verryyyy nice.
