I’m going to wait it out for the retailers to get the 75s back in stock. I like the 18” wide. Should only be a couple more weeks
 

——————————

 

Think the Hybrid light will be back this week, then I’ll hang it from the ceiling. 
 

We are officially moved in now, here is a progress pic.

There's a little shop not too far from my apartment in SF by that name that specializes in ADA and planted tanks. Is that who you're referring to?

 

Purchased my last glass pico tank from them - pretty decent selection and service without too crazy of mark-up (at least, for a LFS in SF). Folks there are knowledgeable and nice enough, in my experience. The shop itself is so tiny, that it's weird for me to think of them as having a larger wholesale operation, but I guess that's what their warehouse is for!

 

I love divider tanks - looking forward to finished build, though the current one doesn't look so bad, either!

Yea, that’s their US shop. I used to go there all the time when I lived in Foster City. Miss that store. I’ve bought all my ADA tanks from there.

I’m setting this spot up as a temporary WFH space, until I can convert the shed into an office. 
 

The UNS 75s is going to stay freshwater mangrove but this Landen 60p (24x17x17”) is going to be the clowns new home

Room is filled with moving boxes, so hard to get a decent pic right now but the clown is in its new home.

Sounds like the UNS 75s tanks won’t be back in stock until early July. 


3 weeks later

Thanks! The saltwater tank is going to be similar to the natural reef tank I had a while ago. I’ll  take close up photos soon

Still need to finish up the stand and everything now that the light is up. 
 

Sounds like the UNS 75s won’t be in stock for a while.

Debated canister filter or use the MAME and make a smaller sump. Landen 36p 5.4 gallon will become a sump.

What camera are you shooting with nowadays?

iPhone 11 Pro for digital. 
 

I haven’t touched a dslr in a while. Even bought a Fuji xpro 2 back in March but still sticking with film for all my landscape photo stuff.

Brad, do you have the silencer for you Mama overflow? I've lost mine during a move and have no idea where to track one down to buy. Any ideas?

 

And how are you plumbing the overflow and with what return pump?

Did you just use sand when you started? I am planning to do something similar

Just caught up on this thread (since May) congratulations on the move. Looks like a nice roomy home. Good luck with the new set up. Well I guess all the tanks are like new again. Nice hybrid light I bet it will be a winner.

It wasn’t, I usually just do hiking/landscape photos. Could have been Dan Tom? He’s an incredible photographer from SF that shoots a lot on iPhone
