Some better awake and clear pics

Wow, looks really nice omgomgomg

I think the rocks look great this way with the two islands. Plenty of room for LPS to get big!

Well thanks teeny. :)

Yea I hope to fill the tank up over the next year+ lots of room for a nice plate and others for sure. That bubble is only about 1/2 it's capable inflated size in the pic ;)

Honestly, I'll prob spray it down when I mist the mangroves with fresh water just scrub when needed :)

 

so here's a thought. what about running your ATO as the waterfall? it won't be constant but you won't get salt creep. I thought of this with my 12 but never actually did it.

I'm going to be "that guy" who says you should remove the right, front, top rock for added depth. Or tell you to stack it on the rock in back and proceed with the waterfall idea. :P

 

Otherwise I really like that scape.

Hmmmm I could. Very clever stells. As usual ;) I may just have to break some rock tonight to get some top off pieces for it.

I was actually considering removing the top left sides front most rock,if I did there's a plateau shelf thing from the base piece.

Thanks spectra, figured the tank is well viewed that way so why not.

Apparently I have some kind of fancy camera upstairs I need to learn how to use some kind of olympus.

I love the top down stuff and shallow tanks my only issue is I hate bending down to look through the glass :lol: Even my Fusion 20 I had to make the stand 37 inches tall.......

Ah very nice ;) clearly,they do.

Lots and lots. Stocking a 260 gallon DT with 100 gal sump. lots of acans, euphyllia, a trach or two, duncans some other stuffs. Need lots of gorgs and zoas/palys too if I can find a good source for larger orders.

So I got my supply of intank floss today to put in the media rack,I also,cleaned the filter sock out by rinsing in the sink with hot water,this thing works well but dirties quick. Luckily I have 2 to swap between since I have the media basket too. Keep the water super polished and crisp.

Also lowered the light a bit and centered it better.

Also,about the light. I feel the lighy is alot better to my eyes over this tank opposed to the 40. Namely because it's a really awesome footprint to ask the duo to cover. And the Glass is higher quality too.

Ahhhhh,new tanks :)

Thanks buddy! :flower:

It was so much fun to build out in the garage with the hammer and chisel! I really am proud of this one.

Also....

Got a box o reef cleaners goodness coming tomorrow :D

Thanks pat! :)

It's my best one yet for sure so far. I was successful in keeping everything hidden and clean.

For some reason the tank puts off the impression it's bigger than it really is in pictures.
