You may have already told us but are you moving everything over to your new & improved larger tank?

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

thanks, im getting close. i put a second coat on the ceiling the other day. the walls still need more work then a primer. i did buy the paint already though, im just not sharing what color yet.
once i have the room painted/stand built/sanded/painted it should be smooth sailing from there. i still need parts and pieces for the tank though. i did order an overflow box/drill bits to drill it. theres just so much i need.

i lost the POTM contest by one vote which is alright just a bummer. since the contest is now over i have to include this picture in my thread because i personally find it awesome.
the picture is Caulastrea furcata which is commonly called candy cane or trumpet coral. my photo shows this species with its feeder tenticles out. the way it works is during the day these will be retracted and it makes its food from the light, during the night these come out to catch food in the water. cool huh?

heres my 75 that doesnt get much attention due to saltwater.



my father built the stand and canopy and the divider. one side guppies and one side dwarfpuffers/neons. this is really his tank with my left over fish from the freshwater days.

clown

cynarina

kenya tree


frogspawn


just picked this up, alien eye favia. you wouldnt guess the price



honestly the pictures do it 0 justice, this was the best with my point and shoot.
heres my 2 colorations of green star polyps that i captured decent coloration of, still not exactly how they are in real life but close enough.
