Got my fishneedit fixture and honestly I am impressed. I've had odyssea fixtures which are comparable in price but the quality just stands out on these, so much better than the odyssea's.

So I finally got the legs on, at least with my b/f's help, there were no instructions on that. lol I also switched the bulbs around so I can control the blues and whites separately with timers i just ran out and bought this morning.

Since i have new lights and the tank is a war zone I figured today would be a good day to remove all the corals and re do my rock. I was hoping to have a bunch more bristleworms out but after the 5th one they stopped going into the trap. Smart little buggers.

Will post some pictures when I finish. As always. LOL

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

Cool, good luck with the re-aquascaping adventure, and as always, I can't wait to see the tank!

I spent about 6 hours yesterday removing all the corals and the rock and re doing everything. Even did a little fragging work. Here are the before and after shots. I left some room in the front on the sandbed for the plate coral which I think I'm gonna move to this tank from the 125g and for a clam one day soon.
I may even take a short video later after the whites come on so you can see actual placement. I think I may actually be satisfied with the layout, at least for now. lol
