  1. I had dinos really bad and only thing that helped was a 3.5 day blackout.
  2. Making glass magic happen now I just need another 3/4" bulkhead and glass cut for the external overflow box.
  3. I have experience cutting glass and making external overflows so plan on this being fairly smooth.
  4. External overflow and the return flow will be the only thing visible in the tank. The lighting as of now will be a 18" current 2x 18" T5HO T5s. I might swap to LEDs if i don't get the "pop" that i want!
  5. Waiting always loved the 5.5.
  6. Wow I love the gopro vids I could watch those all day! Great setup!
  7. Yeah the glass on the 5.5 gallon and 2.5 gallon is just ridiculously thin!!
  8. Sadly my kids cracked it before it was fully cycled Anything under 1/4" is too thin to safely be drilled in my opinion. I drilled it fine but it only took one bump to crack the overflow hole because the glass is just crazy thin.
  9. I had a golden dwarf for a long time he never bothered any fish or even my cleaner shrimp. They are extremely passive for a moray. I used to pick mine up by hand to transfer them from tank to tank. Very docile creatures. Their eyesight isn't great but they never killed one fish in my tank and I had some small gobies. If you keep them well fed they are amazing reef inhabitants.
  10. Just saw this thread. The tank looks great but I must say I really dig that first scape over the current one, just my 2 cents. I had a 2.5 for awhile and it always drove me nuts how much silicone they used on the side seams lol. I even drilled mine but I don't recommend that as they are like 1/8" thick or less, mine eventually cracked from getting bumped by my kids. Following, this looks like a great little tank! You can see why I loved your first scape, this was my 2.5 gallon that I had hooked to a sump lol.
  11. Can't wait to see how it looks with that new light!
  12. Love the new scape! looks very unique! I can't wait to see everything grow in more now
  13. Revamp coming, and the tank has been running for quite awhile with only a return pump and a heater. The initial plan has worked out. Things have been busy with 3 young kids but I hope to get this back on track extremely soon, ordering some stuff the 24th of this month. Updates to follow! I did change a few things back in March but didn't like them so going to redo it all well except for the no equipment in display I plan to not change that. I've been very happy with the SQWD and 740gph pump providing all the movement.
  14. Looks amazing Eugene! I almost picked up two of those new scooters LFS had a male and female but they were too skinny for me and not eating anything but pods yet
