I like it as well. That tank is gigantic, and it looks really nice. Love the rockwork. Maybe later on down the road when it's time to replace the bulbs you can get some different bulbs that will make the tank look more white than blue. Assuming you want something different..

My wife says "thanks" about the rockwork. She tore down what I had done and redid it. She said mine didnt look fengshui... she is asian. "Whatever" was my response.

I haven't seen much progression to be honest. I am not sure if the live rock I bought was seeded enough to kick start it and negate the traditional roller coaster sequence, but it appears that way.

I put a live scallop in early last week and never really saw ammonia spike above .5 PPM. Nitrites never registered. Nitrates have been steadily increasing to about 15 PPM as of Wednesday.

I will do another full test today, and I expect ammonia and nitrites to be zero and to see significant readings for nitrates. If so, I will assume that it cycled as much as its going to.
