I was too lazy to take the tube out and throw it away lol. It's a good thing I didn't.

Ive got a few updates, my refugium mud came today. It had no smell but alot of different colors in it. It was pretty hard to handle though lol, I've got about a 3" deep bed now. 2" mud then a 1" layer of sand over that so I only have 4" of space top to bottom left. My lights didn't come today but it should tomorrow. Also my lightfoot crab molted today so that means he's healthy and no livestock died which is also great. I haven't changed the aquascape yet but I'm planning on doing it soon so I can get some corals in!

Nope. I just broke up pieces of live rock to fill in the gaps. It's like putting together a puzzle

Don't worry I'm still following lol. Just been busy working my tail off and house shopping. Tank looks 100 times better. I like it a lot. Nice work.

+1 looking good. One suggestion, get a surge protector for your plugs. Those 3 into 1 are a fire waiting to happen.
