My money pit......

After seeing all the beautiful aquariums I've decided to start a thread on my little savings account withdrawer. Thanks to Carey I kept my old 20" Sunpod (from my old Aquapod 24) and used the money for a couple new corals and fish. Just added the YWG two weeks ago. What a character. Got lucky that he chose a small crevice in the front of the rockwork.

My very first coral, yellow Fiji. This one survived all my mistakes and kept growing (now filling up 1/3rd of the 30" aquarium).

And lastly a pic of the little guy. Named him "slider". Caught him twice in the overflow box and to get him out just removed the sponge, filter sock, held a net over the outlet and let him "slide" down into the sump into the net. Finally he settled on the bottom where he belongs. LAO. .

So.... Resurrecting this thread. Got my QT set up and am getting new fish today (not sure what yet). Also, got some $$$ in and ordered the Hamilton Belize Sun (250 watt) to replace my 20" Sunpod 150 watt. Last pics the large yellow Fiji leather was traded in for a smaller one - Pics will follow. Torch has since split, so, if I was any good in fragging, I could easily sell one half off (but it looks really cool as big as it is). The BRS GFO reactor is really doing it's job - no more hair algae. Starting to feed my snails and emerald crabs algae sheets every other day.
