I'll probably put it on the Xenia scrubber in the sump, more filtration that way.

I like the stand, you did great, looks awesome. Why don't you want a kenya tree?

Thanks, I like how it turned out too. I'm going to be starting the canopy in a few days also.

I don't want a Kenya because they reproduce scarily fast. Dont want a brownish garden throughout a colorful tank. Maybe I'll do a little just to see how it does, I have the feeling I'm getting a pretty big frag.

I had xenia tree before and they look real nice when it's a 6" stalk but they leave behind little trees that grow into an individual stalk.

Yep, don't get me wrong, I would love to frag up some Kenya, but the individual stalks that drop scare me.

Do they take over the tank then? So I'm understanding some people will consider these a pest, like the aptasia?

You should email me your plans for the hood. I wouldn't know where to begin. (I'll even get my printer up and running if you do LOL)

They aren't really a pest. They won't attach if there is a coral in the spot. 70% of the ones that drop go to the back of the tank anyway.

I definitely wouldn't say take over, but they do spread. I personally wouldnt want Kenya all over my tank, even if it is a small amount.

I am basically doing what this guy did.. But I think mine will look better since I'll be adding stuff to make it look fancier. Once it's built I can give you all the dimensions on it, I might even make a video on it.

Found someone my age that is starting a reef aquarium that lives in a reachable distance from me. Its a hike but I'm happy that there is someone. I'm going to be giving him my death star palys, spread the love, ya know?

I'll be starting to buy the supplies for my canopy tomorrow most likely. I'm also buying a bunch of corals Sunday.. Well maybe I'll control myself a little and buy a few.. Not sure.

Ive been seeing bryopsis in my tank since the emerald crab died so I'm going to buy another in hopes that it will eat it. Im not even going to try to kill it, I'll live with it before that war. It's not too ugly.
