Boo's LPS lagoon. Now with video!

What was the temp on that thermometer? It looks kind of like it's at 5 Celsius. Surely not.

 

The freshwater layer was close to that but not quite..this should clear things up :)

Before I bought a pair of waders, I once went fly-fishing for about eight hours in 54 degrees Fahrenheit water in the Caney Fork River. Until my legs got numb, it felt like my bones were gonna pop open. There's something exhilarating about it once you get used to it, but that's pretty cold!

Haha! I wouldn't want to be in that water either. Some guys on the cruise went for an evening swim, we opted to go kayaking instead :lol:

Wow Boo! Just found your new tank. You've got some really amazing stuff in there. I'm espeically impressed with your photo skills. I can't believe this is only 15 gallons and run off an AC110! What's your mainenance schedule like?

Thank you so much! :) Yeah I'm planning to upgrade in the near future but for now this tiny tank will do. Maintenance schedule is surprisingly simple, tibbsy asked me the question before so I'm just gonna copy and paste my reply :D

 

I do weekly 5-10% water changes with red sea coral pro, feed dry food daily and frozen every other day, trim the macro in the fuge monthly, a bit of algae trimming in the display prior to water changes (my astreas only eat film algae, halloween hermits/all the other small reef hermits aren't allowed in nz and the only types of hermits here BIG frag-wrecking monsters)

 

The main reason that I want to upgrade to something slightly bigger is to have the space for a foxface or tang so I can do away with the manual algae trimming in the display ;)

This is the nicest tank I've ever seen. Amazing color/corals/scape. Glad I stumbled upon this thread.

Do you happen to have any pics of the ac 110 skimmer mod you did? Would love to see how that was done

Wow...gorgeous tank! I really love the rockscape!

 

Thanks Gena! your cube tank is the reason why I decided to add montis to this tank B)

It's pretty much the same as the 1st set of pics on this thread ( this is where I based my mod on) but instead of using PVC pipes with slits cut around them, I re-used most of the tubes and strainers that came with the AC110

More underwater photos from our recent trip

 

 

A bad photo of what the Milford Sound Discovery Centre looks like from the outside, it is essentially a floating building anchored to the mountain rocks behind it.

scale-model of the observatory, pretty much a giant floating cylinder with windows in the middle of the fiord.

Life has been pretty full-on over the past few weeks plus not much has changed reef tank-wise so here's a late October update

 

some sticks are coloring up nicely

unknown ?acro - this piece has been dirt brown ever since I added it to the tank, now it's finally starting to get purple at the tips

et al.

Crazy. The options online back in the states are so bland.

 

Haha, trust me mate, you guys have waaaaay more when it comes to livestock options.

They're quite unique yeah but keep an eye out for them. I know I saw a few that looked very similar to this at some of the US based LFS' websites at around the same time that the LFS here received their coral shipment.

Beautiful tank, I love it. Some inspiration for the rebuild of my 29G cube.

 

Thank you very much :D
