Yes they are called Pyramid Butterflies, reef safe and they are great! They eat just about everything from flake to mysid shrimp.

I am and was a little worried but I used as much of my old tanks water. All of my LR and upper layer of the sand from the tank were recycled as well to the new tank. I am sure I will have some form of cycle. I am also using Brightwells Microbacteria.
I checked todays readings and so far Ammonia is 0, Nitrites are 0, Nitrates less than 5, Ca 460, Alk 9.8.
Good luck with your upgrade and start a thread so that we can follow along as well.

I will more than likely have 2 tanks running for some period of time as I get more rock for the 180 and cycle it with that live rock. I am just wondering what your levels are looking like.

Well guys I think I am almost finished! Just a few more touches and I will be done.
The water is FINALLY cleared up and pics are to follow.
I am not sure what to do with the koralia power heads. I would like to place them so that the corals get the best over all flow. So far my current placement makes the sand bed blow onto the corals that I placed at the bottom.
Any suggestions for better placement?
I still have some coral epoxying to do but mostly done.
I have connected lights to timers so that I don't need to be home to turn the lights on.
Next in the plans are the following that I have already just need to install:

1. Moonlight install
2. ATO install
3. Refugium install
4. Trim for bottom of stand
5. Matching trim for canopy
Here are FTS from different angles.
Let me know what you think.






Once corals have had time to acclimate to their new surroundings I will take pics of them individually.

Hey JSDANCER are you running a ca reactor? Also are you running any type of media reactors? Can you show some pictures of how your sump is laid out? Last but not least can you show how you are going to/ where you are going to put your refugium?

Hey for your koralias do you have the flow directors. You could try using those. You can point them more towards the sand with those with less disturbance. Thats how I have one of mine.
