It's obvious that this is a new tank.  And, by the way, it looks great.  However, the rules do require at least one picture of the empty/dry tank, with your favorite food condiment inside (as proof of starting the tank after reading the rules).  I'm hoping that the tank is still dry and you can get a quick shot for us, so that everything is legit.

Maybe they enjoy eating Coral Frenzy?

People were stretching it with beer... coral frenzy... I'm not so sure. 

 

Probably best to snap a quick picture with a "food condiment" per the entry rules to ensure you qualify to enter!

Yep - Fluval EVO 13.5! I am definitely going to set it up as a peninsula.  Really having a hard time with the scape. been Super Picky and not really sure what corals I want which might effect the type of fish I am going to home. Right now I am waiting for the stand and need a few more bags of sand. 

 

I am going to start it off with the stock lights. Not sure what light to add to this build. I currently have the Kessil A360X on my 40 Gal. Build but wanting to try something different to compare. Hoping to get it wet by Mid April.

YES peninsula all the way!! you will love seeing both sides. so much more room for corals.

 

is that pice of foam the inside of the tank dems.? if not I would suggest making a cardboard cut out of the tank inside space and play around with the scaping that way. it really helps.

 

I like the 1st scape ( not that I get a vote in it.) but maybe cement/putty the branch just an inch or so  of the sand bed? IDK just an idea.

I like the 1st scape as well. It offers plenty of real estate for coral.
