got my box of rock from reefcleaners today. i still need to wash and play with it, im excited to get started on it tomorrow. i also got that glo t5ho light. just need bulbs. i was thinking 2 ati purple plus bulbs. i think a purple hue would be cool on the black on black.

while at the lfs we saw some neat little fish for the 75g. but no clowns that i want for this one. i may have to buy online. so boo. maybe if i take my time tomorrow looking i can find something local.

Just a warning on the purple plus bulbs, they are VERY purple. I only have 2 out of 12 bulbs as the purples and they for sure cast a distinct purple over the entire tank even with 10 other bulbs on. lol

Idk. Ice got one on the 75 paired up with a aqua blue special. We will see. If it's too much I just move one of the bulbs to the ram tank. At least I have options!

the rock from reefcleaners is amazing. easy to work with and very little displacement for whats there. still working with it. had a nice little sculpture set up but i couldnt duplicate it in the tank. still have half of it to wash and put under water. i imagine this will be like the 75g, it will take me a bit to see what looks good and make changes along the way.

on a side note about the rock, when i checked out i left a note requesting pieces i can aqua scape with for a 40g breeder, went i got my confirmation of being shipped there was a reply saying "no problem" i received 0 rubble and all the pieces are very usable to play with, nothing that needs to be left out or hidden. every piece looks choice.

i was kind of hoping for some rubble to put in my fuge for the 75g but no way am i going to complain.

You should have asked for a couple pounds of rubble, he would have done it. But yeah, I LOVE their rock.

the black/white contrast looks cool. midnight angel took no time to start swimming in the new rock work... i guess he thinks its his tank. well i already knew that given how he pushes the banghi out of his way.

i may just buy more rock from them just asking for rubble.

on your vid im confused what your trying to find space for, a place for your ato?

For anything really. The ato is a thought, just have no room really for it in the stand, and not sure how to get a large jug or bucket in there. :-(
