Just some updated pics with the new zoa's and the 'shrooms.







You can't tell that well from the pics, but there is alot of color in this tank. Alot of bright greens, oranges and blues from the zoas and shrooms. Some pink from my finger and toadstool leather.

Beginning of March i'm going to be moving this all into a 40 gallon breeder. It'll definantely help with the aquascaping, i'll have tons more room on the floor to place my rocks etc. Will also be switching to aragonite sand (finally).

My 6line died on me when I was gone. I assuming it was the purple pseudochromis that was the culprit. I thought the 6lines had a nasty streak in them also, so I thought he'd hold his own, especially since they were introduced at the same time.

All in all, being gone for a week, i tested the water today:

ammonia- 0
'trites- 0
'trates- 0
ph- 8
phosphates- 0

Still battling the HA, following the checklist to make sure i'm doing the best that I can do.

Nice looking tank. Keep up on that hair algae and you can beat it.

Awesome tank buddy! U've been doing great. I'm still stuck on cycling for about 3 months now... nothing yet. Turned ammonia and nitrite into nitrate so cycling was over... but no way PWC is getting rid of nitrates. It's driving me crazy! And now... nitrites spiking. [moderator edit]!
Anyways, u'r tank looks awesome, u'r doing a grrrreat job.

So i'm done joking around about lights. Today, I bought a 250 w MH pendant, a galaxy electronic ballast and a coralvue 14k bulb. I haven't been this excited since I purchased the tank in early March !! Now I can finally keep those dang acros that i've been wanting.

I should have it up late Sunday night, along with my new 40 gallon breeder. So long 38 gallon !!

Great news. It's always a good thing when you can do what you want and get the animals too.
I can't wait to see it up and running.
