Ok so a few updates. I finished the canopy and dropped the lights in. Made a few minor modifications to my sump. Picked up a red sea wave master pro, three korali evo 750's, marineland 250w stealth heater, and a filter sock to clean up the water a bit. As for the more interesting acquisitions i picked up a clam, plate coral, and two zoa frags. They are all in a little ten gallon while i finish messing with my main display. The plate and zoas look a lot better then they do in these (terrible) pictures because i have the lights for the 90 sitting over a 10g and i think they are not happy with the overload of light right now. Sorry these pictures are so terrible i just took them real fast. I'll get better ones once everything is settled and looking better.







Almost forgot. With help from jimbo i finished up the aquascaping on the rock.






Getting pretty excited about everything coming together and i'm hoping thing will actually start looking nice some time soon.

You need to run a filter with some filter floss in it to clear the water up. Worked like a charm for me when I did the 120.

If you have a HOB or something it will make a huge difference. Just need some filter floss..

I threw on the filter sock just before i took these pictures. I was to lazy to let it do its thing before i took the pictures. It didn't help i was messing around in the sump and stirred up all kinds of junk about a half hour before hand too.

That picture is actually terrible compared to what it actually looks like. The dark bluish/purple part is actaully much brighter purple but i think the camera was having trouble with the contrast of color and lights. I am going to have to mess with my camera settings and get a better picture of it. You should also stop by and check it out.

Ok so i moved most of the coral over to the main display and hung the lights back up. A few more quick pictures. I left one of the zoas in the QT because there is some algae growing on the disk that i want to see if i can get off before i move them over.





I looked at several fish stores over the weekend to find a good fish but was unsuccessful.

Just for anyone wondering, those pictures Pat has posted of the clam do not begin to do it justice! It is amazing!

+1 to that. And for the price we got it at, such a killer deal.

Thanks all. Yeah i really like the clam. I would like to try a dwarf angel or a copperband butterfly but now i am worried that they will nip at the mantel. I really like both fish thought so it is a tuff decision if i want to try it or not.

Copperbands don't nip at clams?
