I had to be fast with this last one as I have little time. I am draining it down and having my son help me run upstairs with it then adding the water back in, as I have capped the overflow off.



DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS!

Don't worry it will all take shape soon.
This clown fish will not leave his anemone even out of the water,so dedicated.

All these brittle satrs and serpent stars were in that tank.I should be feeding more I suppose.

Mounted the LEDs up. These are a Oceans Revive model wich is very similar to a ever grow model but with custom LED layout.

Just rocking a coralife super skimmer with a needle wheel mag drive pump. Nothing special just tried and true.

Not sure if I mentioned it but I am a big fan of maxi jet pumps. This time I am using them as circulation and water clarification via a sponge.

And the salt needs some mad TLC. I have many of the corals in another tank as to avoid any mini cycles from the move,especially since thtis tank has sand.


It's OK because I have patience.

I wander away for a week? And your thread EXPLODED!!!

A MASSIVE undertaking, I already knew - these pics just give a bit more of an inkling as to how much patience you really do have!

LOVE the clown and his anemone. . . true love, that is. Such amazing creatures, both.
And your FRESHWATER tank, ISH SOOOO PRETTY! I'm so glad you're keeping it up and running, for now, anyway.
Stars are so NEAT - feed them! YES! And then take more pictures of them! (and the clown, too!)
And omg that frag tank O.o! Don't worry, this kid would not try that at home, for sure!
How's that little (BIG!) long tentacle anemone doing after his (I imagine) bumpy ride up the steps? Poor guy. . .
I'm TOTALLY showing your bucket shot to my husband, you've got my collection beat for sure - something I'm forever getting teased about (never can have enough, heh) Now I wanna know how many you have altogether, and WHERE you keep them! lol... I just like making you count things >.<

I'd be terrified to do what you just did x1!!! Much less. . . aw, man - I lost track, HOW MANY TANKS did you just displace?!! Yeesh! That was only three?!! *RESPECT*

. . . you didn't just pick the number 77 arbitrarily, cuz' it duplicates my measly 7 did you?

I'm still trying to close some down over here, maybe if I ever get to Oregon I can bring them with, but be warned, should that day ever come - I really WILL get lost all the amazing tanks of random things, and adorable minions besides, I *might* not ever leave. And when I say I'll get lost, I mean it literally, as I have the sneaking suspicion that you might not even be able to find me in there! *giggle*

. . .Speaking of minions, I think you need to turn the camera around on the camera man! I want to 'meet' him - send him thanks from me for all HIS hard work in helping you out, and taking so many fun pictures for me to drool over!


So, inquiring mods wanna know - how is everything settling in and adapting so far? Hope all is well? Great work, man - hats off, truly!

My MTS is kicking in here...

I can't say anything Chesh hasn't said already, but I just want to give you some serious props man! This has been an awesome thread to watch.

I am feeling inspired to go buy some wood and build a 30g stack stand 2 high. It solves two of my biggest issues.. finding a good stand, and having room to put more tanks. I am no carpenter, but I know how to cut straight and am handy with a drill. This is how it starts....
