Here it is:

There are two compartments; first holds a filter cartridge and second is where the 100gph return pump is. I added filter floss to the first then added bio-balls and chemi pure to the second compartment. In the future, first will be a refugium with cheato, heater, and rubble, then the second will have filter floss, a sponge, and chemi pure.

New pictures, coral, and aquascape!!

I added a neon green blue mushroom, brown zoas, a feather duster, toadstool leather frag, and the tank's first SPS, a yellow Acro. I also added a couple hermit crabs and a Nerite snail. The ghost shrimp look like they are doing okay, but one already died . And when I reversed the mag-float it kinda reminded me of a nano vortech lol So I'm going to leave it that way lol To end the update, a couple pictures:

The magfloat has the same texture on both sides? Mine is coarse on the inside and velvet on the outside part.

Looks awesome - I really like the CBS.

Sorta, Since it's made for acrylic tanks it has a thick white ring on both sides so it doesn't scratch the tank. The ring wipes the algae of the acrylic but it can't wipe the hard algae, only the film. So the snails eat the algae until only the film is left and the mag float takes care of the rest.

I'm thinking of buying an 8g model then moving everything there. I just want a clown so bad lol I sold my 75g off so my only clowns are gone too. Question is, what will I do with my current tank? The store won't accept returns on used tanks and I can't set up more than 3 tanks.....decisions......decisions......
