Some pics of my new 450g marine tank

Several people had mentioned they wanted to see some pics of my new 450g marine tank. Thanks for you interest. Right now the tank is cycling with just the 380 lbs. of LR. I will add pics as the tank matures. Where is the best place to keep a photo diary of my tank (my album?)

Stay tuned as I have a whole bunch of additional questions.

Regards,
Pete R.

exactly what i was wondering Phyl. tons of stuff has to be in 380lbs of live rock. how much of the LR was new versus coming from other tanks? 380lbs of new LR would be fun watching on its own.

You know I thought I would have more critters on this rock. Yes there are sponges and various flavors of coralline algae, however, there are not many others on this rock. Mainly just sessile creatures. Anyway, it is just the beginning.
