Now that explains it. Now I know why Carey and Mr. X always reply to my posts. It is because no one else will put up with me. hehehehehe At least I got you two so I don't feel so lonely. LOL

Seriously, you two are great to us newbies and I, for one, appreciate all I have learned for you both.

So I got some pictures of my new friend and corals. Not all the corals are open but I expect to get better pictures tomorrow of the next day as they get used to my lights.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'm still debating whether to order two 425's or 2 550's for this tank. They are the exact same price pretty much. I was thinking that if the 550's were too much I could always add them to the back wall of my 125g and then go with the 425's for the rimless. Since I will be keeping SPS in this tank I know I need good water flow. But I have a tendency to go over on the flow. LOL

Also got a few more lbs of live rock today, some really really purple stuff.

So I redid the rocks and corals AGAIN and here is what I have so far today.





I'm also thinking I have too much light. :-( The corals arent opening like they did in the pico. The new ones arent really opened much either.

I found my speaker stand and it looks like it will be too short to hang anything from securely. I may go to home depot and check out the 2 by 4's and see if I cant figure this mounting of the lights out.

Thanks guys!

I really love the fact that your tanks come together so quickly. One day, it's... "hmm, maybe I'll buy a new tank." Three days later - "well I've added LR, sand, fish, inverts, 13 corals, and two new lights. I think that these corals will go nicely when I upgrade."

LOL

Its great stuff, wish I could keep up!

At least I;m not gonna do the build on the 55g setup I bought yesterday. i am taking the gear I want, selling some to a friend and then i will craigs list the tank and stand. My buddy wants to try a wet/dry in her fowlr so its good all around. the new 55g is in my garage now, lol. I plan on scraping off the blue paint on the back of it and cleaning it up a bit. Figure I can make a few bucks at it. Then maybe I can find a 90g on cl and get that. OR just get another tank and keep flipping them for cash.

I am soooo tempted, theres a 14g nano cube on right now for $100 bucks and I know i can get it for like $60 but I'm out of tank space and I ahve no idea what I'd put into it. LOL

Carey have you thought about buying some square metal tubing and having in bent to the dimensions you would need like a L-shape paint it black and mount it to your wall for your light to hang from?
