My tank of randomness

Recommended Posts

Well, this is my second attempt at my tank. More research and experience this time around and more thought put into it. Still could have put more thought into it and and change things around. Tank has been up and running for close to 2 years I would say. I started out with 20lbs of dry rock and around 8lbs of live rock and live sand.

 

What it looked like at the start with dry rock and the piece of live rock.

Nice Tank!

Thanks!

 

Your "unknown zoas" look really similar to mine. I dunno what they are :P

Yeah, I picked them up since they looked nice. The green ones were nice and small when I got them, but have since exploded.

 

Nice tank ya have there.

Thank you..I just wish I would have busted up the dry rock the first time through. Live and learn I guess..I was not really thinking about having to place corals at that time..

 

 

Coral Banded shrimp, always jumping on my hand cleaning it..

Wow, that Australian Scoly looks sweet.

Thanks, by far my favorite thing in the tank.. Every day I find myself looking at it..If I crank up the Aqua Illuminations royal blue LED's real high the orange just pops.. I'll do it to get a picture to post at some point.

Going to be adding on tomorrow a Apex Base controller that has a temp prob and Ph prob with a portable gaming adapter so I have wireless ability with it. Comes with a energy bar 8 I also ordered a extra energy bar 8 and a apex WXM controller for my vortech pump. I also converted my Vortech mp10es to a mp10esW today.

 

Here are some new pictures.
