I have a local frag swap this weekend so this thing is going to have some major changes coming up. I also want to create a better stand and if I can pull it off, it will be very different.

I thought about using a spigot just like that, but I wanted to put too much through it (heater cord, temp probe, and air line tube).  I even bought a replacement plug for my heater as I was going to cut off the plug to fit it through the hole.  But I went another way with it.

 

I really like how this came out for you.  Nice looking build!

I plan to use the dosing containers for mixed saltwater and RO water for top off. This way I will have my top off ready to go whenever I need it, and have saltwater mixing at all times. I know if I do not do that, I am less likely to change it as often as I should.

I also plan to build a stand and I got nowhere this weekend on that front.

Well first water change done, and I can say only changing a gallon of water was kinda nice. There was only a little bit of water left in the tank when I stopped. 

 

I think I need to find a few more coral next week.

Just walk up, take a cup, and calmly proceed to take a drink...

It seems all kinds of wrong to remove all the water, doesn't it?  Maybe that's just me LOL.  It's kinda fun to do a water change on these :).

Totally agree on both. going all the way down to no water is a little odd feeling, but let me re-position a few things that were bugging me as well.

I think the hardest part for me is telling if the light is too bright and I need to raise it up. The birds nest looks a little pale but that is the only one. I turned the light so it wasn't directed at it as much and raised it up some. I figured most SPS like the tanning bed experience once they get cozy.

Let me put a few more pics up. I lost the birdsnest and added some zoas and an SPS frag.

I had a rough month. 2 snails kicked the bucket causing a nice cycle to kick off. Killed some SPS resulting in it lasting longer and then the GHA came with a power to overtake the world. Finally got some time to manually remove as much as I could, peroxide the rest, and did a power flush within the tank (filter pad over the output of a tiny powerhead for a couple hours to trap a bunch of detritus.

Pic did not come out very well, but I added some zoas that are already growing in there and it looks like all the gha is gone for now. some snails from John M will come in today so it will finally have a snail in it again. I need to add a few more things but just not sure what I want to do yet. Life has been too busy to get much done on the tanks lately.

My temp probe fell out of my tank and my heater cooked everything. even a few zoa went poof.

It was north of 90 in there. :blink:

Literally just got up and made sure my temp probe is secure, sorry about the mishap.  Now I'm probably going to have nightmares.

That's a horrible way to end this tank. It was looking really cool too. Sorry for your loss.
