Hi to all I have been lurking in this forum for a few years waiting to get involved in this beautiful hobby. Not having the time, enough knowledge, space, or resources, I procrastinated the start up of my 14 gal bio cube. On my daily lurking schedule I read Christopher Marks announcement for the Old School 2.5 gal Pico Reef competition. And as life has settle down a bit I think it’s time to begin. I don’t run for the price, I run for the joy, and to keep a continuos advance in my Pico reef and to keep track of it. I am very excited, it is a great forum, because of all of you, and the best way to learn and share knowledge.

SaltyBuddha's IM10 Fusion with Fuge Mod First off, shout out to all the guys and gals on this forum who help newbies out. Looking forward to being a part of this community. I did a lot of research in preparation for my first saltwater tank. I love a challenge, and creating an ocean in a 10 gallon tank seems like a very rewarding endeavor. At first, I wanted to build my own tank, but acrylic is harder than I thought to work with. Ended up with a decent amount of acrylic, and bought an IM10 fusion. At least I have acrylic for random projects. Frag racks, tank dividers, etc. I upgraded the rear pump to a .5 sicce with a Hydro rotating deflector. Using a LOOP controller with the Current USA lights and wavemaker. The LEDS are not the best, but should be enough for the softies and LPS that I want to keep. The LOOP controller has some awesome features and I am expecting it to work out well.
