HN1 and I found an amazing sale price on the Current USA Cardiff Aquarium. It was too good to pass up, so we had to bring it home! We have had nothing but trouble with the hang on overflow on my 29 gallon, so we decided to tear that one down, as well as the 30 gallon cube, and combine them into the Cardiff.
The 29 gallon will be sold, and the 30 gallon will move into the fishroom to become a FW
Here is the first pic of the Cardiff. The tank fits inside the stand when it's all packaged up. You can see the filtration unit that it built into the tank behind a false back. There is even a skimmer and a small gravity-fed top off unit inside!
This is the tank and stand right after bringing it into the house. This is not the permanent location, but I first had to tear down the 30 cube to get the Cardiff in place.
The sand has been moved over and I've started to fill with live rock and water.
And this is shortly after setup. Rock and water are in, and I have placed most of the corals. Water is still a little cloudy. As you can see, we did not buy the available MH
pendant light for the tank. We already had this Sunpod 150W MH
so there really wasn't any point.
First thing the nekkid clown did when he got in here was to go find his "nem"! :p
We are so excited to get this moved over and be done with the hang on overflow for good. We're loving the look of this tank so far! What do you guys think?
