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:.

25g setup
The fish.
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)
Porcelin crab(love him)

The tomato chased my poor girl good one day, and my bigger false perc died. and still added more.
I can't seem to find the lawn mower blenny pic, but i had one.

Oh and many many snails

My SPS weren't doing as well as i would have liked them to do
but the xenias were flourishing!
and so too were the Aptasias:twisted:

Hiered some help
Finally July had some around (or june can't really remember) and it was time for the 55g
Cycled and pulled live rock from 25g and stacked and moved clown to 55g and got it a friend
I then lost my blenny and my yellowhead jawfish(he's fast so i used the flash to get a good shot)
Corals were doing great
Zoanthids were moving quite nicely

Time has gone by and my Gargonians suffered some red slime and then i got that taken care of with chemi-clean and then it started dieing for some reason. cut off what's alive and re-mounted the new frags
Then something happened to my tank and it almost cost me all my softies
They still look pretty pathetic, but my toadstool is looking great!
as are my zoanthids
it's up to 30 polpys now and i started with 5 i think in sept! 8)

well to replace it i bought this yesterday at a LFS and we got a good deal on it because it was during a club meeting :-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.

The new new spot for the zoas
Fun with my 25g
The zoas given to me for my 25g
i have a devils hand frag and some GSP in there as well i'll get some pics of them up tomorrow. It's going to be a softy tank i think, but we'll see.
