50 gal tank update

Hello all,

I thought I would post some pics of my tank. It has been a little over a week since I brought it over from my buddies house.. there have been quite a few mods.

Here is a thread showing some pics of the original setup.
http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...973&highlight=

Here is a list of changes since the initial setup:
- Removed the Fluval canister filter.
- Added AquaC Remora protien skimmer with maxi-jet 1200.
- Removed bioballs and sponge media from sump.
- Added activated carbon bag on top of the "drip tray".
- Added maxi-jet 1200 inside tank.
- Added 14 lbs of live rock.
- Removed 1 Domino Damsel.
- Added a true percula pair.

Ordered a 192 watt JBJ Formosa DX power compact lighting fixture today which should arrive sometime this week hopefully. This will be a huge upgrade from the crap I have now..

Here are some updated pics:







Let me know what ya think..

Cheers,
Jerid

Very Nice... I like your tank, I was going to buy that tank untill I saw the price, So I went to a 55 AGA on sale. You are on your way to a superb looking tank. Are you plaining on doing coral down the road? If so I would add some more LR and look into getting a high wattage light fixture. All in all its looking great keep us updated.

Also you should look into getting a clean up crew (snails, hermits,ect...) To help naturally control algae, maintain crystal clear water, control detritis and keep your sand bed sifted.

Looks good. As stated I would check into a small cleanup crew.
