Got some bad news I have to take apart the tank.

But I Also have good news I'm getting a upgrading to a Biocube 14g. I'm going to be ordering 13 pounds of rock from Reefcleaners and 2 Eco exotic LED Pro modules for lighting. And I'm going for black Sand with small white pebbles for substrate.

wow Bummer.... The tank the guy was trying to sell me was cracked -_- But on the good side I got a 18w Powercompact fixture which I retrofitted into my old hood. And got a 453nm blue stunner strip retrofitted in my hood aswell. I also got moonlighting too! I'm hoping to add my first LPS's this weekend and maybe a shrimp. Pics!!!

More updates on the tank. Bought a nice fake Pink SPS coral for only $2. I'll take it out when I am running out of space in the tank. I mainly got it because it glows under actinics! I also picked up a Blue Marina 6w LED and got a black backdrop. Lastly I'm going to get one more 6w Ecoexotic stunner strip 453nm blue and just a regular white and blue led strip. And hopefully I'll get my first shrimp tomorrow Pics up in a bit.

K so I placed an order for 2 reflectors for the stunner I have now and the stunner I'm getting in the future. That should double the output. So in total I'll have 12w PC and 24w LED. That's plenty enough for SPS and a clam right?
