Cool!

As always, be sure to post pictures when you do!

Yep, I had a friend over today and even he caught the firefish as being the tank's center of attention. LOL he just hangs out dead center in the tank still.

I moved a frag rack into this tank and put some of my corals on it, they weren't doing as well as they were in the 125g so I figured try them in this tank. hehe...

Fixing to do a 10g or so water change tonight, salt water has been mixing all day and warming up. I had really hoped to be able to do the water changes from the sump but the sump is so far in the back of the stand and so tall I won't be able to. :-(

As far as the tank goes, parameters are all good still so I think the insta cycle with the live rock was a success. lol I do however have the worst case of diatoms ever it seems. It's a thicker brown mat that I haven't really has before in my other setups. I think I ewill test for silicates later, I didn't use pool filter sand this time but regular aragonite I got from reefrocks.net.

Will post again later, maybe with some pictures if my camera battery is full.

Thanks everyone!

My firefish does the same thing. Dead center, mostly still. They're attention wh*res! (laugh!).

Diatoms, gotta love 'em. Next comes the cyano, right?

Love that 'scape. Always looks best in the cubes to have plenty of exposed sand - minimalist approach.
I think once you get it loaded up with corals you'll appreciate the blue more. I feel like less blue is better for watching fishies.

LOl, Here's hoping I dont get the cyano in this tank.

I moved a bunch of frags over last night and it seems to have revived my gonipora frag. That frag has not been open in weeks I was actually gonna throw it away cause I thought it was dead. lol But it's actually opened a little bit today in the 60g. Very happy, it was a super cool coral.

Awesome! That must be a great feeling.

Any plans on moving any of your 20g Rimless fish in there today?

I'd really like to get that done today, I still have the water change to do since i didn't get it done last night lol, too lazy.....

I also have a mushroom rock and a smaller toadstool to move in as well. My b/f was gonna take the mushroom rock and bust it up so I can fit it in the tank, it's on a pretty large rock and it's a single mushroom. The toadstool isnt in great shape either, it's like all over the rock it's on, I may have to cut some of it off. :-(

Just your average run of the mill sunday. LOL

Woot! Just got an email from the head of my reef club and she said she can come by any day this week with her par meter!!!! I am dying to know what all my lights put out as far as par. I want to test the 60g cube of course with the led's and the 125g with the 12 bulb ATI bulb fixture and maybe even the smaller tanks if she has time. woohoo! LOL

Such little things that make me happy, it's crazy! LOL

My toadstool has kind of lefty trails of itself on the rock, it must have moved or something, LOL. If you end up cutting it don't forget to wear goggles, it may look silly but you don't want toadstool juice in your eye, that wouldn't be good, LOL.

What is par? Is it how strong your lighting is?
