Woot!!! Im Set!!!
Well... If ya don't remember me, I'm the guy who has the 55 gallon tank and didn't know squat about lights a few weeks ago..!!
Well, I got a 4 strip of very nice T-5 lights and a moon light replicator for night time now!!! WOOT!!! My girlfriend and I built a custom hood for the tank that fits perfectly on top of the tank and is able to elevate the light strip with ease. It looks like it came as part of the stand that we have.
My tank is doing well..
We just added a Panther Grouper (very pretty) and a black sea urchin to help with the new algae build up that we will have due to more live rock and the fish being added. So we now have a Panther Grouper, 2 different Sea Urchins, Two different Starfish (one -brittle, one -substrate cleaner) a few substrate snails and a Turbo Snail the size of Texas.
Pictures will be up soon.... I'm just waiting for a little more growth on the rear and side glass panels before taking pictures.
Also, i am really wanting to start with some soft corals once this is all settled down. My new sump is working like a champ along with the refugeum, skimmer and heater that we installed before the new fish and the live rock were added.
All should be up-hill from here!!
P.S. - I had no idea how much evaporation would take place once I added the Sump and Refugeum... ; )
