Uploading Pics

For some reason I really like this first photo, I think it's because of the depth.

More pics

Here's the corals I bought. I just posted the Mandarin and Randall Goby, the other two gobies are hiding under a rock and I can't get a pic of them, however the guy called them a yellow headed something.

Another pic or two

So my rockwork on the right side still needs some adjustment. Started cycling yesterday morning. Hopefully won't take too too long.

Here's the rock with the pvc, and then with water & cycling. It's getting there, am now out of space and can't post anymore pictures. grr

It's doing really well. Now that I have a sump and a Beast of a skimmer, everything is fine. Now that it's stable I'm upgrading to dimmable led

Awesome, I don't have the sump yet, I have the tank, silicone, baffles need cutting and from there I'm toast. I'm still trying to figure out how to make it and how to do the piping. Just gonna use my fluval 405 for now.

What skimmer did you get?

That's cool. I got the Berlin classic triple pass skimmer. It's rated for up to 250 gallons so it's zeroing me out in everything. Corals are doing great because of it!

I used nylon hose with clamps and it made the whole piping system really easy.

Would you mind posting a pic of your "piping"?
