Place Holder

Also to share my idea. The current theme/plan is to go bare bottom and have the rock floating. Making it look like an overhang/cliff. Still up in the air for livestock. 

Ordered IM Nuvo Fusion 10 pro, bonsi reef magnetic rocks, and an ato. I have like 200lbs of old dry rock to pick thr. Once the tank gets here I'll get a better idea for the aquascape.

Also I have an original mp10 that I may throw in, just need to replace the bearings.

So I got 10lbs of Premium Deco Live Rock from Gulf Live Rock ordered. Decided to try deco rock instead of dry rock.

Yesterday was busy but I threw the rock in quick and its started! Will post more pics once I get a chance to aquascape.

The rock got a little chilled so most of the large bristle worms died off.

So here is the aquascape for now. Eventually I'll try and get the rock off the bottom. Going to let things settle for now.

Day 3 since the rock went in. Lots of die off raised the ammonia a bit but the bacteria seems to be catching up. Thankfully some of the critters made it too!

Two different types of anemones. One looks like a majano..

Also some of the wild coral made it!

Excited to see what else pops up.

So trying some things out with the scape and getting a floating rock/ledge out crop look. Thinking of trying to cover the bottom ledge with non-photosynthetic corals.

I do too! I've got lots of different macro in my main tank but no Halmeda, but I've got a little more of this rock curing off to the side to go in there.
