Well my darts have chosen their sleeping spot... it's under a rock. I'll see if I can get some video of them going to sleep tomorrow night... I was hoping to get it tonight but they went to be earlier then last night. They now go to sleep while the sun is setting rather then after it's dark.

It's because it is sunny outside and the tank is in a bay window... if you look at the beginning of the sun-set video the tank looks brighter. I know that it's bright enough for the coral I got in there. It's growing like a weed.

I got a few more corals today... but I came home in the middle of work, I kinda rushed the whole acclamation thing (only 1 1/2 - 2 hours) Plus I'm not sure how they will like my flow... Also my camera still sucks plus I kicked up a ton of junk while putting the corals in... but anyways here they are anyways; because, without pics, it didn't happen.

My eyes are burning from the 2.5 hours I spend going through your thread ... I started to skip every other page right before you documented your leak, and I had to go back!

Great tank! You are definitely ambitious! I am glad to see you are finally getting around to having more fish. I am sure it will take a LONG time to have a "wall of fish" to look at, but it will be worth the wait

I need to recognize the patience involved in this, for I am installing a 110g with 75g sump (on the floor beneath the 110, which will also house fish). I am expecting the same "wall of fish" but I know it will take years to get to where I want it.

Thanks for the inspiration to wait it out and keep dreaming

Glad people like it, and that "wall of fish" might be coming sooner then originally thought, I got a gift from my mom, and my brothers kids want to buy some fish too so he said how about we "own them" but uncle takes care of them for us. I thought it was a great idea.

that sounds like an excellent idea. Just make sure you go with him so you can give opinions on which fish to get
