Added 30lbs live rock and 30g water to the 75g...

Pretty proud of the timing and timelines of my visit to NAS - these two rocks (yup; that's only two rocks!) just about jumped out of the water, calling my name! They looked awesome in the rock tank, and I could see how well they're gonna fit my plans...

Sump should be ready tomorrow- which means I'll just about have everything running within the next 24 hours...

The PVC frame will support the sump about 1½" above the bottom of the cabinet with a hard plastic grid; the original purpose of the grid is as a fluorescent light diffuser. It's not very fragile unless you don't have the right tools to clip out the excess when shaping it to fit the space it needs to be installed in.

Patience, Grasshopper!

More Live Rock Added Today

Picked up another 6lbs of LR today at Nebraska Aquatic Supply:

Also added the first mobile life: two hermit crabs.

Refilled my five 5g jugs; won't need much of it until nearer the end of the month when I do my first 15g water change.

NAS has been so busy lately (the most awesome lfs in the Omaha area, so extremely popular...) my sump is still awaiting its modifications to convert it from an empty 20 long...maybe I'll have more pix tomorrow evening. Meanwhile:

After moving the remaining critters out of the SW 35G shut down, I left a little food in the front of the tank to entice any hold outs after not feeding for 2 days.

Got a couple snails that was it. Today I saw a hermit so I moved him and noticed that my nice rock which was having some coraline algae on it was no longer in the water due to evaporation, I moved it over a couple inches and saw what looked like a little cave hide out with a few shells and coral pieces around it. A long while ago I got the tinyist little Pistol shrimp maybe about 3-4mm long. Saw him for a few days and then he has been unobserved for months.

There was a Bristle worm sticking his head out of the little bitty cave in the sand and crazy how there was a flat 4-5 inch chunk of rock in there and after lifting it off, there was my now grown 1+ inch cute little Pistol shrimp!!! YAY!!!

Yesterday showed off the fish collection to a family friend. Fun.
