    They are VERY VERY expensive,that is for sure,but there is always going to be people who are willing to give their unborn child up for a few frags lol. I love your collection so far. There is some no name really nice pieces and then the few very popular pieces. My list is pretty short and has some pieces nobody would want lol. That coral just glows like crazy under blue's,but it also has to grow into itself and then just wow.

    I love the Friday reference lol. But I agree,it is just a ridiculous coral,for sure. Have you seen some of the Acro's Vivid has....just WOW..Idk where they are getting this stuff at nowadays but good lord. https://vividaquariums.com/collections/signature-series-coral?sort_by=price-ascending

    Maybe the clam was consuming majority of what you were doing ?! Its a small possibility. Oh really now ?! That coral will fit in perfectly in your tank.
  4. So as you all may knowing ( whomever follows my mumbled up mess of a thread for my 7g,2g other 2g tanks lol I have started a new build(ish). Its been a pretty slow process so far,but now that I have the tank and rock,I may as well start a thread. But I will just go ahead and dive straight into and give you the run down on what I have planned so far.. The Tank: A AGA standard 5g tank ( 16"x8x"x10" ). Just a plain DIY (not so perfect) false wall ( 3.5" x 8" x 10") with all LifeGard Aquatics fitting which consist of 3/4" Bulkhead,Strainer and threaded 90 for the drain side and 1/2" stuff on the return side with 1/2" Loc-Line pieces for flow direction. The return pump is a Jebao DC650,which at the moment I find to be a little less flow that I am looking for but plan to either upgrade to a Jebao or CoralBox DC1000 or 1200 return pump. The scape is composed of about 5lb of TLF Stax Rocks. My thought on the rocks is that its amazing,the rocks were easy to break up and make the scape you really want. The Filtration: I will be using a AquaClear 30 on the tank in the "sump" area. Strange I know but,there was only so many media reactors that wouldn't stick out of the top of the tank too much that were within my price range,so I decided on this. Also,it will keep a little flow in the sump area,and if I ever add a fuge,it can help move the material around. For media I am using Carbon,BWQ NO Cube Bio Media. I have some Chemi-Pure if ever need be. The Lighting: I was able to get a super retro and awesome light from NanoCustoms from a fellow reefer,replaced the array with 2 also retro NanoBox Reef 11up boards that contain Ch1: 8 Luxeon ES Royal Blue's,4 Luxeon ES True Blue's,2 SemiLed 400-410nm Violets and 1 VioSys Hyper Violet. Ch2 is 4 Luxeon ES Warm Whites,4 Luxeon ES Neutral Whites,2 Cyan and 2 400-410nm Violets and 1 Luxeon C Mint all at 700mah on Thomas Research 700mah dimmable drivers. The ATO: I will be using a CoralBox NS0 ATO with Kalk to keep everything good and rolling strong and stable. The Dosing: Will be done manually,but eventually probably upgrading to a Jebao or whatever I can find for a decent price. But I will be using ESV B-Ionic once I see the need to do so.

    Coraltopia - The beginning !

    Yeah,it'll be awhile. I never know what I want. Most of my choices I can get locally so it helps,even though it took me almost a year to go thru a 55g bucket of RS back in the day lol.

    Coraltopia - The beginning !

    Who knows with the stupid USPS. I have used RSCP and AquaForest Reef Salt. I absolutely hated the AFRS,and I love the RSCP but alk was already really really high. I may try the RSBB. I have not,I haven't seen too many or really anybody use it.

    So I was supposed to have some blank boards and a bunch of loose diodes to play with from BlueAcro,but they supposedly delivered it but nothing was in the mailbox..go figure. So hopefully they show up tomorrow. I'm still trying to figure out which salt I want to go with,so far my choices are: -BWA Neo Salt -Fritz Pro -RS Blue Bucket -Tropic Marin 🤔

    6.8g Imagitarium AIO

    I'm glad to see the salt switch is going well,and I like the way you are going about doing it. I was thinking about using some as well,I think SaltwaterAquariums has it and using my $5 off worth of points. I would love to see some closeups of your Acan's 😄

    How often WC going with no skimmer?

    As long are you aren't going full blown sps,I would say weekly 15-20% water changes. Most creatures are pretty tolerable of params outside of Acro's,for the most part.

    Zoanthids inhibited by coralline?

    Yeah its more than likely not the algae,Zoa's are...tempermental to say the least,give them a few days. Anything could be making them mad,probably some pesky pods messing with them.
  14. I give credit where its due. Everything you touch or build is absolutely sick,so golf clap for you sir. Simple but easy,I love it.
  15. I absolutely love the new tank and setup. That plumbing is so nice. What light fixture is that ?

    Custom 3up violet ?

    Does anyone know where you can get a custom 3up with 3 different spectrums on 1 board ?! I only know of LedSupply custom 3 up that allows you to use 3 400-410 or 410-420..and its $22 hmph..

    Muffin's 2.5 Pico

    I may,but I need to get my 5g aio up and running first lol I have changed up what I'm gonna do with it about 20 times already 🤔

    Muffin's 2.5 Pico

    I know exactly what you mean lol. I don't have a problem with pico tanks,my biggest is 7g amd smallest is 2g but just keeping a like 2g with shrooms would be fun.

    Muffin's 2.5 Pico

    I have always wanted to keep just shrooms,because of how easy they are but I can never keep them alive. They are just so crazy,and come in sooo many colors. I may have to try a super small pico with just shrooms here soon,that would be fun.

    Muffin's 2.5 Pico

    Wow,the more and more I see awesome shrooms it makes me live them more !!

    I totally forgot about this tank !!! You need to do more updates 😄 got any close up shots of anything ?

    Custom 3up violet ?

    I have used those before (but thank you !!),I am looking for a 3up with 1x 400-410nm,1x 410-420nm,1x 430nm diode. I guess the only option is buying individual diodes and reflowing them myself.

    Coraltopia - The beginning !

    So since the tank will be ran as a penn style tank,I decided to spray the section of the tank everyone will see..but I'm stupid and sprayed it while it was sitting upright and a lot of paint ran..so I will have to scrape majority of it off and re-spray laying down.
