I went a little bananas extending my tank's cabinet this week.., i decided to add a louvered look to the top of the aquarium stand and extend that all the way up to the ceiling ( that was a heck if alot harder than it looked ) ... I also enclosed the cabinet via a door on the side of the cabinet by the main door where i keep my pwc water... Also continued via a small but long cabinet over the door and across the window for added storage... I also decided to add the " slats " Tio the main window wall just to keep things looking uniform.... Its hard to get any good pics cuz the room is rather small and you gotta back yourself up in a corner to try and take one.
So enclosed us a couple of work in progress shots and of my two new corals ...

Looks great! Wish you lived closer, I would load you up with red shrooms. The chalice is amazing.

Thanks hank, Keith and greg.., its a work in progress for sure.. But slowly moving down the right path...the red mushroom colony are the first ones ive tried in my tank so itll be interesting to see how they go.., ( my girl friend took the mushroom picture. , and was proud of her work ) .. The picture of the chalice next to the little ricordea mushroom clump is the chalice i had purchased from an online dealer 4-6 months ago that came so battered up it was hard to tell what it was or if it was actually going to make it or not.., well, im proud to say that it actually turned out to be another one of the " Martian chalices " that i like so much., it seems to be thriving and growing beautifully !! Today is the last day of my vacation ., and if nothing else its been interesting to say the least.., its back to work at 3:30 am wednesdsy morning ., ive pretty much exhausted all my hawaiian spending money on lumber and other building supplies etc so its prob time to head back to the salt mines to regroup .make some cash and try to plan another trip out there next year .

I put out the " gone fishing" sign yesterday and our group the " bow boys" took out one our boats and went across the mexican border and had some intense surface iron yellowtail fishing for the bigger units.... Most of our fish went between 25-30+ lbs....here's a picture of myself and steve our skipper/ boat owner doing the honors with the gaff. I ordered yet another " martian" chalice the other day and she's on the truck for delivery this morning.., other than that its back to working on the never ending aquarium cabinet this morning

One of those yellow tails would look nice in your tank.

Looking forward to seeing pics of your be chalice. Been meaning to post a recent pic of mine as it has partially changed color. The iPhone camera doesn't show the color well but the back half is a brownish red now
