This is the largest frag I could save. The RTN had already covered the entire base. This frag is about 4" tall. As you can see in the closeup above of the same frag it is showing a little sign of stress but will hopefully pull through.

Here's a pic of my living room shot from above. (please excuse the mess, my 3 year old finds it fun to setup pillows in the floor and leap from the chair into them) As you can see the windows cause entirely too much ambient light for a reef. I have 38" of wall there to the right where the trunk is but... Thoughts? So I have decided at this point barring all miracles to go ahead with the 30 Cube in my bedroom, much to the amusment of my wife (note the sarcasm). It will replace a much neglected 20 Gallon planted freshy.

ambient light isn't a problem, direct light is. The corner you shot the pic from seem like a decent area out of direct sun light

I shot from a balcony on the second floor. underneath is open to the stairs and foyer and door to my bedroom directly below. On the other side of the stairs (behind) is a dining room which is never used. I would LOVE to do an inwall in the dining room with the tank in the garage but that would require serious renovations and eat up the wife's parking space, aside from the fact she sayd "no-in walls". Since the back of the house faces south there would be no hard direct sunlight where the chest is? Still think it's too close to the windows and door? But for the record that picture was taken at about 4:30 in the afternoon with a high overcast.

I think if you can keep it out of direct sunlight, it will be fine
