Great pics Mike, planning an upgrade already,lol. Addiction! Why not go straight to the 125 and save yourself the year of wishing you had gone bigger.

tank

Thanks everybody it has been an interesting journey.

Wooddog, I live in a Studio Condo so room is limited. I may go for a 90. I am going to measure to see if it fits and that will be it until I move.

I am planing on about 5-6 mnths. I am going to go all out with the next one with maybe my 30 as a sump/fuge, MH lights, mixed reef.

I just love the clear blue tint look of the tanks with the MH lights.

A 90 would be awesome...I think the size would be not that much different to a 75- roughly the same length and width but a little more depth. So its decided then....90 it is,lol

Pics, updates, and your opinion

NOW, who is still following this thread?? I have been working on it since the beggining and I have made a succesful zoo, ric, LPS, soft coral reef. When do I stop???

I plan to upgrade and start over in about 4-5 months. Should I continue my updates and pics?? It would be like Reef in the making to end but I dont want to take up space on the forum for nothing. If I do not get 3 or more reply's to this post I will post a full tank pic and end. I thank you all for following and helping.


Here are some pics I took tonight. One of my candy cane, and a closeup of yellow polyps. Also, a pic of my spotted mushroom and its little ones beggining to grow. And 2 frags I got at a frag swap.

Everything is going well. My HOB Fuge that I got used is now crawling with pods for my new scooter blenny!! My hair algae is just about gone and my coraline is booming all over the tank and starting to cover the glass. I have to admit I have not done much testing since I dont have SPS that draib more calcium, using Reef Crystals Salt, and everything has been great with about 10-15% PWC every week.

Very nice pictures Mike...amazing progress. I want to see a full tank shot though.

I would like to see periodic updates.

reef

Yeah that is what I thought Lindsay, maybe periodic. It gets boring with nothing new and people benefit more from Q&A than watching a sicko like me go from nothing to full reef in 2 months and then carrying on until I am broke with no place to live with a 500 gal. Reef!!

Hope everybody enjoyed the thread and I hope somebody gets something out of it.

I really like this thread Mike, even thought I don't have a saltwater aquarium. I love the pics, esp. the corals. I think that periodic updates would be good!
