Well, as I said, I lost most of my corals. My intention is to do a mixed reef. LPS. SPS. softies, Clams. Not TOO many SPS, but some chalices, monti's and bird's nest, etc. and lots of Zoas. I love Zoas.

Right now there is a yellow elegance, some Zoas and a big "crocheted" mushroom. That's it.

Someone shoot the cow?

Haha j/k. That is one awesome room you got there.

Anyways, that's an awesome tank you got there. I like the sump setup you've got. Looking forward to more pictures.

Shooting it was the easy part. EATING it took some time. Hamburger anyone?
hehe

Thanks Zer0

Introducing "Spot"

So, very excited today. Last night I was lucky enough to snag a Blue Spotted Jawfish from Oakville Reef Gallery! :woohoo:

His name is, of course, Spot. He is out quite a lot - which surprised me - and is eating. I tried to let him out into the tank near where I had hoped he would make his home and he seems to have chosen the exact "spot" I had hoped for.:hurray:

Sorry for the crappy pics. he is camera shy and goes into his hole whenever I get close with it. He is WAY more beautiful than the pics show.

Here are pics of the acrylic I cut to cover the overflow. I extended it 2.5 inches into the tank to match the rest of the euro brace. When you look from inside the tank it looks like it is enclosed. I just have to file the corners so they are square and will fit tight against the euro brace.

I did not like the way the euro brace stopped at the over flow. It was uneven when looking from the side. Of course, if the euro brace DID go the full length of the tank, I would never be able to work in it. This way, I get the aesthetics as well as the benefits - which are: some noise reduction, some evaporation that would happen at the overflow and MOST important, it helps keep my fish - especially the ****'s Angels (Firefish) and Spot and snails, etc. from going into the overflow.
