Oscarr19's 100 Gallon System Upgrade

Thanks bribo!

I thought I'd finally add pictures. For now, pay no attention to the rock work. I'm going to let the coral adjust and recover for a week or two before doing a full rescape. In the meantime, enjoy

FTS: As you can see, I opted for black sand this time around. Although I do like it a lot, I know that I'll appreciate the classic white aragonite in the 65. Oh, and excuse the low water level!

And of course, my little fuzzy poking out right around feeding time.

Everything is looking good! That is an awesome brain you picked up there. Also, I'm kinda liking the black sand.

Thanks Paul! I do really like the black sand as well but I prefer white.

The brain is awesome. It eats like a champ and spent the whole night pooping yesterday lol

I'm currently in the process of making a few frags and selecting which corals I want to stay and which I want to go. I really would like to get nicer and/or rarer sps, lps, and zoas. Before that though, I've got a few purchases to make. I desperately need a refractometer, good cal,alk,mg test kits, and a good enough powerhead for this tank and the eventual 65.

Quick update! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I decided to treat myself and today I picked up my yellow tip torch, a female vermiculite leopard wrasse, and a target Mandarin. Both the wrasse and Mandarin were eating frozen and have quite the belly. I'll try my best to get some pictures up tomorrow. In the meantime, what did you guys get from Santa this year?

That wrasse is a true beauty! They can be extremely hard to get a photo of as well and you did a great job on that! Hope it does great for you, I am a little jealous! That mandarin is stunning as well and that torch looks really good. Very nice scores for sure!
