The new 75g

Howdy all! It's been a good long while since i've been here, sorry for the hiatus, but i needed some time to collect my thoughts and my passion.... That being said, I took down the 55g and put up my new 75g. I'll start sharing photo's as soon as i can get them done! Hope you enjoy them, and I hope that I keep things going. The aquascaping is very impressive,but I don't think it looks "terrible" but it'll all in the eye of the beholder.

55g before taken down...


As you can see. there's a bit of a few problems, but it's been taken care of, for the most part.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

What did you use to make that sand background? I really like it

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

The background is actually Coraline algae that grew over time and then was taken over in part (you can see it on the right) by another algae. I only left it that color and there because my wife really liked the purple background.

I am having an Issue, again, with Aptasia, Macroalgae, namely caulerpa, and cyano bacteria
I just have to take them one at a time. I'm starting with the bacteria and then moving to the aptasia but i need to get the algae under control too! so much to do...

X-D IKR. well if I had a tang or a foxface I would have the caulerpa under control. my main goal with fish is to bring attention to the corals and to help keep pests away. not necessarily for looks. they are just my extra help.
