so since i have had a couple of serious problems in a couple of my tanks i have been forced to medicate a number of corals.this has prompted me to setup a much needed QT for corals.and a kinda half way home for my zoas until things blow over.there will be alot of coral bounciing around these here tanks.o fisrt things first.
TANK TIME. Cool

cleaned this bad boy out and ot it ready to go.

had to rewire a quik disconect to the socket then mount the reflector to a board that i will fix above the tank so that it slides back and forth adn is easily removed.
and then fired it up after i put in some thouraly cleaned crushed coral and some live rock pieces i pulled from a problem free tank.

i i also used the product clarity and a hang on the back filter to quikly pull out the water born particles.it works.

so its been a lil while and i thought i should post a pic before i shuffle things around again.this tank was supposed to be a half way home for coral but now it seems to be more of a excuse for more coral. Rolling Eyes [img][/img]
at one point there was alot of this nasty algae on the back wall everywhere and i was about to use a media to absorb extra nutrients but i just got a seahare and that did the trick.

I need a 40 breeder stack too. You make it look so easy to set up and it doesn't seem to take up much space. Somehow I just don't think my wife will go for it. Maybe if I build a new "wing" onto the house I can finally keep some serious aquatic life. What a Face A guy can dream.

Now....didn't you get a 29gal pre-drill recently (with a nice painted back)? Where's that going to go?

As always, I'm so impressed with your coral-keeping endeavors.

well thank you for the kind words. Very Happy
there is no reason you cant have a 40 breeder stack if you had LEDs lighting both tanks.you could really slim down the system then.dreaming is always good so if you ever need some extra hands doing some of the work let me know.maybe a ways down the road you can have that little office/room that has all the tanks you need.

hmmm i do have a 29 gallon or two and i am in the process of designing,building,and finding the right place for a 29 gallon stack.thats right a 29 gallon stack with that tank plumbed into the system.it will have to be bolted to a wall so i have to really think about where i will put this one.all in good time as i have that patience virtue.
