This is going to be a softie and lps tank. I had 2 naked clowns, one disappeared. Pair of red firefish and assorted cuc. This tank has been up and running for about 2 months now, most of the corals came from my other tank. Here are some pics. :D

Looks like a good start! Do you have the stock lighting on it?

Yes, that's she stock lighting.

 

I am going to re-aquascape it when I get the chance and get all of the frag plugs out and get everything off the sandbed. :D

Are those the pivoting return upgrades or are they the ones that come stock with it?

Redid the aquascape today, put in a frag rack, water change, chemipure elite, purigen. Added a new fish the other day, actually added 3, 2 didn't make it. :( pretty cool little fish for a damsel!

 

Here are the pics.

Getting an AI Sol super blue for it for Christmas! Finally all the colors won't look all drowned out!

Lol, I found a sugar momma that asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I'm waiting for her to bring it to me though.

 

I bought this little beauty tonight!

I paid more than I wanted to for it, but I have wanted another elegance for quite a while. I'm happy with it!

Thank you! Is a fun tank! I need to get some putty, my Sally lightfoot likes to knock everything over. Getting kinda annoying.

iNo Skimmer. I have thought about it and I'm not sure if I'm going to run one or not.

I am possibly going to be looking for a 2 bulb T5 fixture for this tank instead of the AI. I am not really happy with the colors that my Solana has with the Sol. If I can get a good deal, I might humor it. :)

Beginning of march, this tank will come down and everything will be combined back with the contents of my SPS tank in an 80 cube. I don't have any updated pics right now, but it looks way better with the Sol over it. :)

Does anyone know if the back pane is tempered? I think I am going to drill it and connect to the main system to use as a frag tank when I upgrade. I actually have a new tank enroute. The back acrylic popped off the glass dividers a while back. IM is sending a new tank out.
