I think you got the better end of the deal. Totally awesome build thread by the way.

So I took some photos tonight now that the new coral is looking better. The tank is almost 3 months old now. I need to invest in a macro lens in the near future. My individual coral photos are not very good.

I am still trying to figure out the names for all of the new stuff.. I also haven't been keeping track of some of the names of the stuff I already had and am forgetting...I need to start some sort of log.

Here are some tank shots.





I will have to start a second build thread I suppose. It is going to be a sloooow build but here is what Day one of my new 180 build looked like:



The tank is sitting on the stand backwards at the moment.

^Yeah I do as well - not sure what to do about a hood however.. The company that makes that stand also makes a really nice (but expensive) hood. I will probably build one but it will be a challenge to get it to match exactly.

Oh, and btw - up for suggestions on what to do next with my 100. What should I add etc...

Could make it into an aggressive tank. Have lion fish and stuff in it.

Yeah have considered that.. my problem is I've tried that in the past. Then I decide to add just one coral. Then I do a second just to balance it out. Soon it just turns into a reef tank. lol. Maybe I need to look at a few more FO tanks to see whats possible.

haha... Yeah i think that is what is going to happen to me. I found a few people that live near me that I can get frags from. Win and win.

Just kinda wondering what more for live stock I can get. My gf says no to anything poisonous cuz shes certain I'll end up dead! haha!

Went to a "Reef Fest" recently in Salt Lake City. Had a great time and had a chance to talk to some vendors & Manufacturers of everything from Food to Skimmers. They had guest speakers will all sorts of back grounds, a great raffle from which I won a nice external pump! And last but not least were frag vendors... AMAZING frags for sale. I bought some more zoa frags, Paly frags, a new frog spawn, a hammer, some acans, a Green Monti and a cool neon stony. It was a great experience and I would recommend going to an event like this if you haven't been before and have the chance. Here are a few photos I took during the event.
