30gal - new photos :)

Ok so this is my 30 gallon fish only /w live rock

What do you guys think of my rock setup, I was thinking about adding a piece or 2 to go in front of that jigundo pump.

just for kicks, a shot of the puffer and a shot of the cream angel

Tank is looking very good. Congrats on getting it set up. You could either add some rock if the pump bothers you, it doesn't bother my eyes any.

That's awesome rockwork! Is that a trigger, I see, in the 1st pic? Those guys might start to get a little crowded, pretty quickly.

Yeah its a trigger, this tank will only be around for 6 or 8 months though, before i move up to a more perminant 75 or 90 gal tank.

Cool, I'd shoot for the 90, if you can. I think that trigger might cause the puffer some problems as well.....But, I could be wrong.

blazey - i think what roka, and what i responded to, was the topmost photo, the little guy down in the right corner, hes a bursa trigger. the toby i took a main shot of is a bluedot (i believe) toby. so far they dont bother eachother, everyone pretty much hangs out.


Some new stuff.... I put one of the flat rocks in front of the pump just so i didnt have to see it, and also installed my 1st attempt at a moon light. I think it came out pretty nice I now have the moon light on a timer to come on when the main light goes off, and vice versa.

I saw a aquarium-safe LED in-tank light thing, and I turned it into a moon light using some clingwrap to disperse the light, and just stuck it up in the awning/canopy flourescent fixture. Just angled it to shine down the slope of the rocks.

(note: the shot was a 30-second long exposure, so the light looks a lot more intensly blue than it really is) I put all my equipment away before I looked at the picture and didnt want to get it all back out lol.

this is with a little light in the background just to give some definition


this is the only cut I had to make


my magic cling-wrap dispursion.... uh... module.
