Wow cody that looks great, is that an overflow for the sump i see?? can you get a couple more pics of that when its done? Looks really good and stable so far. are you keeping the 2.5 in that spot or moving it behind the tank??

The thing that looks like an overflow is actually my filter. It has a built-in surface skimmer, and I packed a sponge in there, and then just a return powerhead. I am going to be moving it to the fuge for the return pump, and my frag rack will go there.

I wanted to move the 2.5 behind the tank, but it is like an inch too wide, unfortunatley. I'm ok with it at the side, though, since my desk lamp will be able to light it (that is my dresser next to my bed).

Nothing. I am just using a U-tube with a suction, and possibly a spihon-break if need be. Here is an example:

Yup. I believe it was a TOTM for February.

Anyways, I ordered a screen-top with a door that arrived today sicne temperature was being hot, and I wanted something easier to work with so I dont have to pull off my entire canopy all the time. I notcied the door was blocking out a lot of light, so I just took it out.

I will be gone untill next Saturday, so there will not be any updates untill then. I am leaving my tanks tomy sister while I'm gone. I just spent 20 minutes showing her what to do after doing water changes on every tank.

Ok, I am back. My SW tank did absolutley perfect. I expected it to be somewhat green, but my Caulerpa has grown much bigger, so I assume that helped. My FW tank on the other hand, not so good. The filter was almost off, some plants were dead, fish breathing very heavy, and uneaten food everywhere. I did a 75% WC with gravel vac, and I hope everything is almost back to normal.

Blue, the filter is called a Subcurrent Internal Filter by Current USA. I love it. The surface has been sparkling, and the extra 160gph is definatley helping. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...1&pcatid=18381

As for the corals, I think I am just going to drop that guy's deal now. Hasnt been on since June 25th and hasnt responded to anything. Too bad though, the corals were gorgeous.
