Hey folks,

The move is done, was is successful? I have no idea, only time will tell. Everything is at the front of the tank because I couldn't see anything due to the new live sand, therefore I didn't want to risk pounding rock on top of my corals, I'll scape it once it clears.

I did some minor aquascaping today after it cleared up just to get everything partially in order, nothing appears to be stressed from the move and we appear to be solid, thankfully everything went well. I took a few photos of how it looks today.

New lights,new sand, new water,things look crisp. Corals look healthy and happy, I bet you are pretty stoked yourself. I love a good upgrade,more room for corals.

Indeed, now I just have to decide what to get next. Got anything you want to sell?

I have many corals I can cut...In fact I think I have one or two I can give you. I need to start a thread for a DBTC coral incentive here.We do it frequently here in Oregon.

Got rather bored today and decided to clean up my entire office and setup a frag aquarium under my 33G reef with some extra equipment I found in my closet.

Used my original PC lights (1x 10k and 1x actinic - 72W Total), which should work pretty decent on a 10G aquarium.

Yeah I had concerns about the heat build up as well, but since it's a "use what I already have" job, I used it for now.

I want to plumb it into my 33G, but I'm not entirely sure yet. It's not predrilled and I have concerns about the HOB overflows, so we'll see what ends up happening in the end.

Bubble Tip Anemone; It does host, but I can never get a picture of my clown inside it since he only visits after the lights go out.



Lord Acans; These were a gift from my mother, we'll see how they do.



Purple Pavona I got from Bert ages ago, it's been doing quite well.
