I love the tank but you need some coralline bad.If I were you with that aquascaping ,I would paint the back of the tank too.

due to the halide, all coralline I get tends to bleach out shortly after it appears, so I just scrape it off all together. I have a removable back, but since the back is clear, you get to see the purple glow from the actinics on the sump....kinda a 3d deep blue sea background.

Well let me re-phrase.He doesnt need it ,but the tank would look better if there wasnt so much white rock there.I mean dont get me wrong , I think the tank is awesome.Just a couple a things that would make the tank look better.

Well, it is mostly a frag grow-out tank...so there is going to be alot of visible rock...thank god for that, cuz there is something like 30some corals in it...mostly SPS.

...soon to be added blue torte frags from tha mother colony in the 60g.


whats so special about the overflow anyways? I just drilled it, made a box out of a brochure holder, used needlepoint mesh as a screen, hacked up a bunch of plumbing and such...I made a DIY thread on it almost a year ago as wetworx.


no sand at all, just debri...why? well, the tank was just moved, and so I want to be able to blow out all the crap before I put a thin layer of sand in. The sump has all the sand that was once in the ten before moving...along with my olive brittle star....the nasty bugger ate my 6-line wrasse, old anemone crabs, peppermint shrimp, neon goby, sally lightfoot crab...everything except for the skunk cleaner and all the hermits (if he would have gotten either the marshall island electric blue or the hawiian zebra hermits, I would have pulled him out and ripped his arms off!)


the pump is a single eheim 1250 hobby pump...i estimate that it makes about 250gph with the 2'head. ebo heater. my diy injection skimmer on the sump. my diy battery powered top-off on the sump. diy sump. diy stand out of oak. diy drilled tank. diy light. if there was only a way to diy a heater and a pump....
