Awesome Mike. Love the pictures. One day, I want a Frogspawn, but they seem to be so hard to find around here unless you want to spend $100 for a small piece! Best of luck with the tank. Can't wait to see it all filled in.

Are you plannin on adding more liverock?

Pretty sweet Mike! I should get a pic of my 125, it only has sand in it, LOL!!!

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

new tank

Thanks guys I will be adding a backgorund, however not paint. A guy in my reef club gets a black background that the magfloat can be used with.

Lindsay, I am actually not plannng on moe LR. I have about 25lbs in the sump and I want room for the corals to grow. My last tank was real packed and I thought it was to crowded. I may add a few small pieces but as I collect more corals, especially ones that come with small rocks am sure it will be fine. There is roughly 100lbs right now.

I am getting a ric rock tonight from a guy that I traded pink paly's to.

I got the Tang from Liveaquaria in a pooled order through the reef club and I am very satisfied with the health of the fish.

PM me about Frogspan. It is very common around here. I could get you a piece about 3 heads, which s what mine is for about $20 if we could be careful shipping.

Oh and thank you Mel. The YT wll be the only tang. I strongly disagree with some of the size req even on Liveaquaria such as a hippo in >70. IMO a YT should be the only tang in anything less than 125 in the long run.

new pics

I am sorry all but this was not really a tank "build" thread but rather a quick upgrade.

So here is some more pics of my stuff before I prepare to get my CA Reactor, move my zoos down, and jump into SPS.

Mel, and Lando deserve big thanks for the pic of the scooter blenny. This fish was a "surprise" from my girlfriend and she thought it was a goby. After alot of money on pods and fuges, he is thriving.

In my latest adventure I am going to experiment with a RDSB or Remote Deep Sand Bed.

There is a lot of information about it on RC in a thread where Anthony Calfo explains its use. I am excited about the idea even though I am not really having an issue with nitrates it is easy, cheap, and fast to setup and cab be taken off the system.

Here is the info: http://reefcentral.com/forums/showth...5&pagenumber=1

Perhaps he is referring to Mike being listed as "Guest"?
