Gracias Dave! It's taken a bit of time for the monti to color up, but it's now one of my favorite corals.

Wow, that's the fastest tank upgrade I've ever seen! I love the look of the Mame overflow but I never considered it because I was sure I'd break it eventually. 

I love the new scape with the Stax rocks. They look much better in real life than I thought they would. You've done a great job!

Thanks Teeny. It was literally a 12 hour tank swap. It went from breaking my Mame at 10AM, to me picking up the tank by that afternoon, and the install happened that same night. Fortunately, all I had to do was drill some new holes in my existing stand to accommodate the ELOS plumbing. I love the stax rocks, and plan on using them in future tanks.

Not the lettuce ones. They have a diet of algae, including bryopsis!

I really REALLY really like that scape. It's a miniature cannon live the cannon scapes and the fact you've managed to absolutely nail it on such a small scale is awesome! Corals are looking super healthy too

Yeah! Did you go deeper into the store? The first half of the store is like tanks/empty displays. The back half of the store is where all the goodies are, and where the employees stand around. I haven't gone to Aqua Pros yet, I'll definitely have to check them out the next time I'm in Chicago again though.

That's the dream! I should be done adding corals now; the tank's foundations are pretty much done. Time to wait for things to grow in and fill the scape up!
