5 Month's old, lots of photos. 56K BEWARE!

5 months ago today I was checking to make sure my salinity, pH, and temp were good, and was getting the bathroom prepped to process 160lbs of LR.
October 1.

October 28.

December 23

January 19

Febuary 23

It's been through a number of changes, the LR has been tweaked a few times. I upgraded the sump from 20 to 100gal in December, and installed an aquacontroller and autotopoff in January. The amount of test kits I have has just about tripled. All the LR is from LR.com.

Fish:
7 Blue Chromis
2 Percs
2 Bangaii Cardinals
2 Scooter Blennies
1 Bar Goby

Inverts:
4 Peppermint Shrimp
2 Skunk Cleaners
1 Scarlet Cleaner
4 Mythrix Crabs
1 Christmas Tree worm
Blue Leg and Scarlet Hermits
Turbo, Astrae, Nassarius(Big and Small), Nerite and Cerith Snails

Corals:
Green Stars
Toadstool
Orange Polyps
Pink Birdsnest
Blue tip Acro
Hammer
2 small SPS frags I forgot the names of
Some hitchhiker corals as well

Some more detailed shots:
A closeup of the birdsnest and green stars, can you spot the scooter?

Hammer coral, this along with the Acro and unknown green frags were added last week. If someone cares to ID that ladder 2 I'd appreciate it.



The whole right side. I just wanted a pic of the toadstool but everyone tried to get in the shot. The skunk is in his normal spot, his 'mate' molted last night and is hiding in the back.

Sorry about the size of the pics. After about a month I decided I really didn't like power heads, the look of them, the fact there intakes would always clog up, and the suction cups always fail. So I'm slowly trying to replace them. Next month I plan to replace the ph on the right with a sea-swirl. Then sometime in early summer the middle one, still not sure on what to do here, maybe a spraybar.

I can only imagine the feeling you got piecing that tank together and watching it grow. I kinda got that feeling looking at the progression. Felt good.

Thanks for sharing them.
