Either would be cool. A dt fuge would be awesome. You could sell it as her sw tank and let her stock it. At least that's what I'm going to tell my wife. The things we tell our wives.

We have rock and sand.


I still have a full bag of tropic Eden reef flakes left over. Premium Aquatics recommended 4 bag, 120lbs. I bought 3 and only used 2, 60lbs total. That gave me about 2.5"-3" all around with a few deeper area in the back of tank. That should be plenty for any fish I add, for the most part. By the way this sand is awesome. Highly recommended. Still waiting on my sump. For the time being I'm gonna start off with a 15 gal tank I have laying around, then when the sump comes in I'll just switch it.

Well I added two of my favorite rocks from my other tank to get the cycle underway. Here is a pic of the final aquascape. Time for lights out and then we wait. Thanks everyone who helped along the way.

Did you put anything under your rocks eg. eggcrate? The rock looks good wih caves and such. No much lr did you use to seed it? Did you use any live sand?

Yep eggcrate under the rock. Then just enough sand to fill squares the rock. Then the rest of the sand. The two dark rocks are the only live rock I've added as of now. They are really the only two I want to keep from my other tank. I may put a piece or two into the dump to help along the cycle then pull them later. As for sand I have not added any yet. I don't want to disturb the other tank too much all at one. I'll pull a bit out in a couple of days and add to the 90.

Well I got the sump last night. Spend today getting it online.

Now all I have to do is wait for my ATO to get repaired. Also got to install the reactors, but I'm still waiting for the media to come in anyway. Also picked up a few nice additions for the scape while I was in Ocean City.
Barnacles

And Pipe organ skeleton

Gonna order the CUC today that should be here on Tuesday. In the meantime the transfer begins tonight.

Quick update.
Got my CUC from reef cleaners yesterday and added with no issue. It is absolutely insane how much the send. Also got my ATO back and hooked that up without issue.

Now I just have to add the dual reactor then I can clean up the wires. I have also transferred most of the corals. The rest gets transferred this weekend. Pics to come after the transfer is complete.

Well transfer is complete. Coral is doing great. Fish are a bit stressed though. Mostly they just seem to be finding themselves new hiding spaces. Still got some diatoms but the CUC is working hard. Now I need to find some new fish, suggestions anyone.
Enjoy the pics.
FTS

LPS and clowns. These were not easy to move. The clowns were not happy and constantly buy me as I went along.

Hippo in hiding

One of my favorites

Plates


And just some random corals




Thanks for looking.
