  1. Following along, can't wait to see how this turns out ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  2. Beautiful, just beautiful!!!!
  3. I like! the mushrooms and GSP looking great. Have to admit, the only thing left in my g is GSP and one Leather coral. Over the past 6 months was so busy at work I only had time to top off the tank and feed and that was about it, now I am over run with hair algae and bubble algae. Will be breaking it down later on this year and redoing it completely. But yes, the AC70 would be great for your since you have the room for it. My 5.3g s a cube so was limited to the size I could use but so far the AC20 is doing great with the bigger impeller. Still thinking I may mod it and use it as a fuge though. Don't want the extra nutrients in there if I can avoid it and if I go all corals or RFA's I will only be feeding maybe 2x a week. Between that and water changes shouldn't have to worry alot about nutrient export like I do with my 36g. I was kind of like you with my 5.3g, initially set it up to use as a grow out for macro algae and also to try and raise pods in it. got to the pint where I was only toping it off just to avoid taking it down or doing anything with it. but after seeing some of the amazing pico's and nano's on here I had to get back into it. I got rid of the light that came with the tank and went with the ABI for now. seems it will give me what I need for this small of a tank to work with softies,LPS and some easy SPS. Here is a pic of the 36g from a while back. then and now still using the OceanRevive Arctic T247 Lights. Love them.
  4. Very true. I may end up taking my power head out if I decide to go with nothing but RFA's. You got a build thread up for yours yet @Superdave?
  5. Your welcome, If you did decide on the 70 to have a bigger back area just remember...the flow can be adjusted. ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. From what I can tell yes. I probably should have went bigger but was worried it would not fit the dimensions of the tank. If you can go bigger than yes, would be a great idea to get every thing in one area for a cleaner look.
  7. Thanks @Superdave. So far so good for sure. The GSP is gonna come out of my 36g I have currently. It has spread all over the place in there and will be taking a small piece that managed to start growing on an old snail shell in there. Just gonna glue it to the bottom base of the tree and let it go. I though the same about selling it, but like you everyone has it and its so readily available just about everywhere lol. I was also thinking about putting a small piece on the back glass and let it cover that as well. Would also make it easier to frag if needed too. I am using the aqua clear 20 but with a larger impeller in it. Getting some great flow from it like this. that along with the Hydor 240 got some great flow going on. Will be posting more pics once I start adding livestock to it. Been boring waiting for the cycle to finish so haven't really posted it any except for the few that are here. Will be posting more as the coral grows and new additions get added. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  8. Is this one here @Friendly https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CXTZN2Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The holder I got separately too, works really good and adjustable. It is this one... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011RBD6YW/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I am really liking the light, nice shimmer to it and the blues look great I think.
  9. We got diatoms! time to do a water change and then start looking for a small CUC so I can start looking at some corals, hopefully this weekend.
  10. Beautiful tank Doesn't look like it's 6 gallons....looks bigger
  11. Following along, need some idea's for this myself lol.
  12. Nice tank, following along.
  13. Welcome to NR @D4rkAngel Look forward to seeing your tank progress.
  14. Well, everything is looking good. Seems cycle is over finally. All parameters are in line, just need to get a test kit for phosphates, I know I'm going to need it before its over. Now I really got to get thinking about what I am gonna put in first or if I want to go with a specific theme. My original idea's were... Zoa Garden with a GSP tree RFA only tank with a few sexy shrimp RFA and mini maxi carpets with sexy shrimp Softy and LPS mix Acan garden with GSP tree Soft, LPS and Easy SPS mix Just can't make up my mind. Not sure I want any fish in this one at all. Will have a small CUC though. There are just so many things I want, but can't decide lol. I know I can only get so much in a 5.5g tank, but I do have a 36g that I am gonna be completely redoing later down the road this year so I could always add some to it as well. What do you all think?
