I LOVE Cylinder tanks. Your corals all look so happy too, any specs on your LEDs?...and can I get a piece of that hammer once it grows out ;) ? You will have to trim down that sinularia real soon too. Also your stand\cabinet look clean and complete things rather nicely.

Thank you! and maybe what do you have lol and as far as the leds, I have two 50 watt leds both with diffusers. One is a 20,000k white and the other is an actinic blue. The PAR value ranges from 450 (top) to 300 (bottom) and 280 (sides). I tested it with a MQ-200 Quantum meter.

I have several other euphylia types if you wanted one of those or zoas,montiporas,and maybe some other good stuff. I do like to trade. You say you are upgrading, are you just swapping the tank out?

dylanmegyptian 10-04-2013 11:03 AM

I like the sound of montipora lol and yea i was just going to swap it out with a 12 gal rimless cube because its sooo heavaly scratched. but i was thinking of cleaning out the 6 gal and removing the scrathes and putting a blubber jellyfish or moon jellyfish in it.

Jelly fish are the one thing I have not kept yet and I must say I am still intimidated by the thought of having one. I would love to see one outside of the public aquariums but for now I will be sticking to the other inverts. If you do go that way make sure to make a build thread for it so I can learn a thing or two.

Yea sure will, ive keept several types if jellies. Moons, upsidedowns, blubber, medusa, and non-leathal Box jellyfish (which were EXTREMLY diffucult to find lol).
