will the skimmer sit in there, are you even going to run a skimmer or is this just a refuge? i like it.


are you painting your wood riser too? might not be a bad idea if this tank will be sitting there long term.

we are debating about the riser and other wood .. not sure if painting ot some other cover we have been looking at...

no skimmer for this tank... just the refugium and careful maintenance... so far so good .. just got a call from a guy i am going to meet in 45 minutes and he is hooking me up with some nice freeby corals... i am super excited!!

I love your clowns! Just read through the diary and you've done a good job so far. I really like the scaping too. I hope it continues to go smoothly for you

i thought we were going to have to wait for ages,but Wow here they are and they're lovely.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Very nice tank. I want to get back into salt but only if i can do my dream set up. It would be a 100 gallon softie/lps tank feeding a 50 gl refugium tank that over flows into a surge device to feed into a 100 gallon look down seahorse tank. I figure if I set my goals way too high i will never get back into that addiction again.

wow that is high... but let us be honest about this particular addiction. if the desire is high enough, then no goal is too high...

when i tore down the first tank i said never again... this time i said not any bigger LOL... we shall see ...at this time though i really love the way things are turning out and as long as i stay true to the plan it should continue to go well.. i expect some issues but that it the nature of our hobby...

glad you like the tank :)

keep watching more to come i am sure..
