I am surprised your wife didn't snap a fts too. I'm sure that will come some time later today.:p
All of my clowns are tank raised. ORA clowns as a matter of fact. It's a natural thing that a clown host something. Mine have been in the tank with the RBTA for several months now and showed no interest in it. When I had all 4 of the clowns together in the frag tank along with everything else from my reef they saw the other pair go straight for the RBTA and at one point all 4 clowns were in the RBTA.

I do have 4 clowns. 2 pairs, one is mated the other don't know yet. 2 of the clowns were meant for my Frag tank and the two in the pic above are for my reef.

Sumps under my system....

Fuge: 20g tall dedicated fuge


Dual acrylic sumps...hold heaters LR and a place for my media reactor as needed.


30g tote with skimmer and return pumps. Also has LR and heaters in it. To the left is my 10g top off tank currently not used.

A lot of the above will change as I upgrade pumps and return plumbing. I have a MAG 36 I'm going to use as my return pump for my reef as well as the frag tank. I have to get some plumbing supplies and get to work on that. I just need a break from working on the tank right now.

The first in a series of PWCs is almost complete. I will be changing 32g again in a couple of days and again over the weekend. My NitrAtes are now at 20ppm but I want to make sure that I don't have any issues so PWCs it is.

I am assuming the acrylic sumps and the tote are in a room behind the wall?

The acrylic sumps and the 20g tall are in the stand under the tank. The 30g tote is in my tiny fish room which is directly behind the tank.

Looks great! I definitely used the wrong choice of word saying totally complete. I should know better than that. I guess I was referring to the 120 build, but as you mentioned, even that is not done yet....still got more pumps/plumbing.
I like the new "dori" addition. I have one too, they have lots of personality, especially when they go to sleep laying on their side like a person.
