I just read through the whole thing...wow. I didn't realize how long it was. I wish I discovered a Mag Float earlier with all my pics!

I will get the tank shot to you all by tomorrow.

updates..new frags

Thanks Rok, I actually am giving them away. They just grow to fast and I am dominating this tank as a zoo/ric theme. When I get my 90 I am keeping this as the smaller zoo/ric.

Here are some new frags I have been getting off my reef club members. I am all about propogating after reading all the terrible predictions for the worlds reefs.+ a quick tank shot.

My hair algae is just about gone and my corals/fish are all thriving. Not to mention how happy I am with amazing coraline growth. I highly recomend the 192 watt Coralife PC for a 30 gal. for someone who wants to keep soft/zoos/LPS.

Next week I am getting some RPE and bright yellow zoo frags from another reef club member. I also highyl recommend anybody to get involved that has a local reef club. It has been an awesome resource for me. Not to mention there are a few in my club that are nationally known for their reef skills. It is a great place to have local support and you get to meet a lot of people and see alot of great tanks. Most of them have put me to shame. I have seen more full blown fish rooms than I can take!

Hope you all like it.



90 mixed reef coming soon!!

30

Well if you are dumb like me you could buy everything new and spend about 1200. But now I find deals on used tanks that are great. Do you have a reef club locally?

Dont forget about all the little stuff that all adds up as well. If you want a really nice tank it is going to cost some money but you can reduce that greatly looking for used deals.

Just found this thread....WOW!!! I am thinking of upgrading my 10 gallon FOWLR into a 30 gallon reef so this thread was awesome. Do you like the 2x96 watt lights? Too much or are they necessary for the corals you have? I'm in the info gathering stage now but you've already helped me out a LOT! Keep the updates coming!

PS what reef club do you belong to? I don't live that far away and would love to get some frags when I get to that point.

tank

Thanks all.

As far as the lights I would not go anything less. These let you keep anything besides SPS.
