Im just voicing some ideas here and giving a little update..

Nem moved all around the tank yesterday. Couldnt even find him till i checked his old spot and he had gone back. We dont have much sps so i dont have a headache over it.

Also, all new zoas open every day. The torch is doing okay- we moved it and glued it too the rock. I think it just needs more flow to fully extend. Next time im in the tank i'll adjust.

And i was thinking, i want to glue some gsp and both of our new xenias to the back wall. I dont want it to get on the rocks...and plus it'd be easy to scrape off on the wall right? The gsp is already on a rock so i'd cut a sliver off it and glue it. Would it grow?

Also, ive been thinking about future tank projects and upgrades. I hate our skimmer, so i really want to find an upgrade for that. Then i was thinking about a sump. Problem is we already have that chiller down there so that would be a tight squeeze. Could i do a smaller sump..? If i had a sump i could add the better skimmer there, and have an algae scrubber!

We also have those back chambers for somthing beneficial. We cant add cheato because they get no light. What could i put back there? I want to dump some pods in there and start a colony..i literally havent seen one in our tank lol.

Then i was thinkin, maybe a UV sterelizer back there? I have always heard they dont help but who knows! I know there have to be some good ones!

Thanks guys!

I always heard the prism skimmers were bleh. They had a bad reputation by the first month they came onto the market. Their may be a mod online to get them working better but I wouldn't know. Hopefully somebody has a trick to get them to skim properly.

Is the middle sturdy enough and do the corals like it? If both are yes then I love it.

I think that it looks great and can't wait to see it loaded with SPS coral.

I love it! The side with the zoa garden is going to look AMAZING once they spread and fill that space. Love the arch and the dark cave on the other side. Does Jack like it? I hope so. You guys need to post another video.
