nothing wrong with a friendly harassing in the right direction!


this is where im at. i still need to get a mandarin. thats 2 weeks down the road. i know david and kurty advised me to see it eat in person. but i may get a red mandarin from LA. waking up this afternoon and seeing pods on the glass made me happy.

lights. i still need lights for the tank(4bulb t5ho nova extreme). i think i would like a monti? birdsnest, maybe a leather. trumpets, candy canes and what ever else has australian in front of it.

after the mandarin i may be ok waiting on the lights and corals if it would mean getting the 125 swapped over to salt. a happy day for me would be to start a new thread for that.

oh and i may put a 20g berlin sump on sweety pies 40.

that is a good question. the answer is... sweety pie and i downsized the 75 we had going. it kind of changed all my plans. i built the sump im using for this tank originally for the 75. once the 75 went down i got it in my head that sense she has a 40 breeder holding all the 75 gallon fish, well the ones that would fit in it, we had to get rid of a wrasse and the one spot. and i have a 40 breeder. i could do a really cool 40 breeder reef. just never changed the title of the build. but anyone that followed this build could get the info from it and still be there for when the decision was made to go maybe mixed reef. and help me out and guide me along the way too.

to answer your question simply. i wouldnt need the light if it was just fowlr but i may change my mind to go reef.

i think im over stocked. or after the mandarin i will be done. the only thing helping me out is that my system is 70gallons of water with a dsb in the tank and the refugium that is half of my sump. with a skimmer rated for 150gallons.
