Kellsindells build...
 
Ok I've decided to put my tank on here... first time so here i go.

Started in 2003 and it was mainly a fish only tank. i don't have any pics of that because my computer quite on me so i'm using my wifes for now. 2007 i had a 25g full of my 55g that i had to take down due to many moves :cry:.

Then at the beginning of this year i decided to start adding my new stuff...(this was after i moved the tank to my wifes apt before we got married this Oct. :-D)

I am having issues with my alk right now it's just at 8dkh and i'm using a buffer to safely pull it back up. it was at 7 before, i don't know if you can see it, but on the right of my birdsnest it bleached because of it.

Thankfully nothing else is suffering because of it. i guess that's what i get for being too lax with my testing.
