Thanks!

The 120 is slowly getting to the point where I'm happy with it and the amount of growth I'm seeing in my corals.

Well let's see. I did a PWC yesterday and that helped finish up the clearing. I cleaned the skimmer out again. 3rd time since putting the sand in the frag tank. I'll be making more water today for another PWC tomorrow. Oh and I cleaned out my fuge. The macro was so thick in there, it was well past time to do some serious pruning. Other then that nothing much has happened.

I still need to get the frag tank finished up and a TON of new frags cut and mounted. The work I have yet to do is more then what has been done so far.

More to come.

Thanks

That is the sand I used in my tank. I have a depth of 3-5" depending on where in the tank you look. I believe that is more of a suggestion then anything else. It is great sand and you will be happy with it.

Anytime! Make sure to take lots of pics during your build. Try and document everything you do.

Guaranteed to be lots of pics and docs. Just want to get a little closer equipment wise before starting a build thread. Heck...I havent even gotten my tank/stand in possesion yet. Another week or two...I hope.

This Oceanic RR tank combo is the one Im eyeballing:

Very nice! If you are looking at doing a reef tank the canopy there would probably not work out. If you are planning on having MH lighting you are going to need a taller canopy or none at all.

I plan on reef eventually and have some ideas for MH mounting but will wait til I start my build thread for other ideas since its a bit off topic here. I keep changing my mind which way Im going to go with this as I learn more
