That will be great. No, I don't have the space to do a dividing room. Actually, with the In wall, you can have a fish room behind it so that you can do a lot of things in there. all the thing that other people outside of the hobby does not understand.

Hi all,
Just wanted to update everyone on my bad boy. Setup the auto top off and is working great. Got the light up and running. Transferred my PBT to the 180g few weeks ago and he looked very happy in it.

However, I have 2 issues that I am battling for the past week

1. Whenever my MH light turn on, my GFI will trip. What is strange about this is that they are running on a different circuit. Anyone has any experience on this?
2. I could not get rid of the tiny bubbles in the tank. Will probably need help from sumphead.

Andos: Yes, a lot of time is spent on this bad boy, but it is worth it. The best part is the setting up. That is why I never want to get out of it

My old Fiji rock is beginning to test my patience. It is still in the "cooking" process. I still getting cruds out of it after 18 weeks. SoI am convince that LR do absorbed a lot of cruds over time. That is pobably why in my old tank, I have cyano problem. When I remove the fiji rock from my old tank, my cyano gone.

Just a note, since my tank is up and running for close to 3 months now, I have yet clean my glass nor any major water changes. I just did a 5 gallons water changes so far. I contribute this to the "clean" rock in the tank and the big skimmer I have.
Will post a pics of the skimmer in operation.

Does anyone have problem with the Pro-Heat Heater? I brought 3 Pro-Heat Titanium heater and 2 out of 3 over heat my tank. The heater will not turned off. Good things is that both times, I caught it when the tank heat up to 86F.

Also, as an attention to you all, be careful of the equipments that hook up to the same circuit as the Pro Heat heaters or even a different circuit but same ground. One obervation that I found is that my Pro-Heat reference point change when my MH light turned on. In my theory, this is because as I was told that some MH will induce small current into the ground and shift up the reference point. So, if you set the heater to be at 80F, once the light is turned on, the reference changes and the same 80F setting may heat up your tank to 84F. Well, again, this is just my reasoning from my obervation.

Alex: Thanks. Still waiting for my rock to finished the aquascape.

Hi all,
Sorry for not updating this often. Still waiting for my rock to finished the aquascape. One positive sign is that my Corraline has been growing very quickly on my starboard and the LR. I also began to start the routine to do water changes probably every 3 -4 weeks or so.
I am still battling with micro bubbles in the tank, it is not a annoyance to me now, but eventually I may just add some rocks in the sump to limit that. My skimmer had been working great. As some of you know, I lost my YT in my old tank a while ago. I did purchase another one and is in my QT tank/old tank for 4 weeks already. Can't wait to transfer it to my 180g.
My PB tnag, Clownfish is doing great. I did notice recently that I had been losing one snail every few days. Check the water parameters and it looks fine. Still a mystery to me
