Well here we go- PICTURES!!!!!!!
So I got an additional new friend, blueberry gorgonian. Always loved them and they gave me wicked deals on things. I got 25% off the nem and 20% off the gorg. Clowns were full price and honestly everything would have been well worth full price cause they look amazing. The nem is absolutely awesome, dark metallic green base with bright pink tips.
Well now to the most technical part of the adventure, the powerheads. These things are just AWESOME. They do have a minor hum to them but its in my living room where I'm either watching the tank, TV or playing XBOX. Either way the sound is not going to bother me one bit. The flow these things produce is epic, as you can tell by the cloudy water. I have them running in nutrient export mode at the moment and was able to get about a 2" wave going. These things pound and I'm happy I got them, props to the wife there for giving me the ok to do it cause they come with a hefty price tag. Also got the new return going and it's nice. I added a T fitting and a hose back into my skimmer chamber so I don't have pressure built up in the pump (suspected cause of the last pumps failure). All in all it's been a good day
and I'm stoked to have new life in the tank. This go around I'm only getting really nice stuff but that is on hold till the nem gets comfy so I can place things according to his/her desires. Now no offense but I'm outta here to go stare at the tank, after supper that is.
