Thanks! I got it from Saltwater City in Redmond, WA. All the little notches lock together well, so I'm hoping to get a couple towers and a bridge or two assembled. Found out the hard way that it does not drill well... :-)

Oh.. So it's not from an online vendor.. It looks like really nice rock. I know you said it's not really a "scape" yet but it looks pretty damn good IMO.

I think it's pukani rock if you wanted to purchase online. I tried to get tonga branching rock from BRS, but it ended up being waaaay too big for the tank. Bummer.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you had a great holiday and are sitting back with full bellies and a nice buzz.

I was hoping to sell the Razor and get a second Hydra to light that side. IDK now that it's not selling... Maybe I'll just raise and center the single hydra and light my living room as well. LOL!

:-) Might take as long too!

The thing I like the most about the long footprint is more room for fish to swim. I'm kinda leaning toward stocking with swaying corals like the torch. So soothing to watch.

Depends on your rock work to if its more central maybe the edges being lit doesn't matter and you will have to avoid Corals on edges

wonderful piece of furniture to compliment your tank and even better that it has some functionality.

After living on a sailboat, I think I'm obsessed with the idea that everything I own has to serve at least two functions! LOL

 

 

I've just discovered a new (to me at least) member of the clean up crew. It eats the green film that can cover soft corals. Pretty sweet! It's kinda scary looking. Here's the best pic I could find on google. Anybody happen to know what it is?

Ha! marine millipede is a good description! :-) I lucked out with finding a post way back in 2006 with links to this page about dorvilleidae. some look similar... maybe. Ewww! Then there's this one and this one.

Sig update soon! Glad to have you along!

It's 11" D x 16.75" W x 26.25" T. There's a 1" lip on the front and the door is .75" thick, so you'd have to take it off hinges to get full use. I think they discontinued.

 

Getting a 24???!

Flow is too much. Had to get a volt reducer to prevent sand from blowing around. After that mod, I love the random flow and wave action! I thought about getting the mp10, but for the savings this is definitely my choice. I hear the wp10 is out so I might downgrade and drop the volt reducer at some point.

Awesome setup! I like the new signature a lot :).

 

That worm looks like a bobbit worm. Is it really fast? Like, REALLY fast??? If so, I'm pretty certain that's what it is. I don't think all bobbit worms are bad. Yours sounds like it might be helpful :).

I'm thinking I may give the wp10 a try.
