    There is about 50 or so corals in here now with another 20 more on the way to include the scary hallucination paly. I am going with mostly polyps and lps with a few of the hardier sps (montis, setosas, and digitata's as I want to ensure that everything will be alive when I return. There is still a ton of space for more corals and a few fish but this thing looks like a rainbow spit into my tank.


    What static tank would be complete without my skull mohawk. (Fragging 4 heads of my aussie torches to design the mohawk and I will continue to glue the corals that are on the sandbed tomorrow.

    Mangrove tank got a facelift and I got rid of the chaeto on the right side so that I can fit more mangroves and my angler that is on the way.

    Found some old white led rope lights and bam, I have light over the live rock sump. They are set on a switch so that they can be turned on and off during servicing.

    Unfortunately now that I can see down below, I have discovered that my heaters are just dangling around. So now I need to design a very large heater holder. I'm thinking something similar to a probe holder that can rest on the top of the tank.

    Removed my led and house light combo and replaced it with a dual bulb 48" t5.

    The light came with one white and one blue bulb but, I am thinking of changing both of them to white. Any thoughts on this?

    Doyle, thanks for the reassurance.

    Ehren, I got excited and had all the hardware already.

    Levi, makes sense to me. I will replace the blue with a 6500 and leave the current 10k in until it needs a good changin.

    Busy weekend ahead. Hoping to have another 80 gallons of frag flat added (with plumbing and lights), refrigerator/freezer, fragging station, and extra storage

    Coming together quick.

    IMG]
    Levi and cody stopped by to help with the build.


    Bad pic of levi taking an extremely long break as he is watching bones with amber on the couch.

    Final product. We attached more peg board for vertical storage and wrapped the inside to supply the room for the fridge/freezer for beer, pepsi, and fish food.

    Tomorrow it will get a light sanding, some caulking for a water tight seal, and some paint. This stand will also house the fragging station and extra storage for the miscellaneous whatevers.

    No, Salt Lake City. We were out there last week and figured I'd stop and pick up a couple supplies just incase.

    Lights are hung for the frag tank. I picked up two leds 2:1 blue from cody. No water or corals yet so I will have to play around with the height at a later date.

    Added a fridge/freezer for drinks and fish/coral food.

    Frag tank is in place and ready for plumbing.
    I don't care for the bulkheads that came with the tank so I will be waiting for my order from brs. Everything else is plumbed and ready to go. I hacked into the main return pump line yet again for the frag flat. This pump is a beast.


    Added some shelving units for storage. Setup my fragging station for the future and have pleny of space for activities.


    Full shot from the couch.

    Couple of small projects today.

    Needed to black out a window because I had some light algae build up in the sw mixing tank. Trip to home depot and a talk to a rep and we came up with a nice look without expensive curtains.






    Final product. Took me 6-7 minutes and cost me 12 bucks.
