Well some of the latest updates.

We're done with all freshwater tanks. The 75 rr is now over against the fish room wall around the corner from the main tank. I've collected some rock for it. I got some show rock from Planet reef and some base rock from saltyunderground. Thanks Lisa!

But here's the pics.






And some actinics of my display that came out so-so.



I'm putting 4 vho's, 2 actinic white and 2 actinic blue for now over the 75. 1 of the 2 lamp ballasts is coming from my display and I'm changing that to 3 5ft with 1 actinic white and 2 actinic blues. I have 2 of the bulbs on the 75 now but didn't get a pic.

Well here's a few of the 75 settling in. We added a couple true percs and a sebae but the sebae didn't make it. It started to open a tiny bit and I squirted some mysis on it. It moved a bit then shriveled up and died. I moved some softies from the frag tank into it too.



And here is Jack's hammer which is for sale (hint hint)

A cool sponge we got at planet reef and a leather for Christmas from bigcasino



You can see a couple chalices' in the pics which we're not real hot on so if you like chalices' and want to trade a softy to her she'd be game.

I still haven't added the other 220w of vho but I should have that done by this weekend. I hope.

Roy...I am so sorry to hear that. I shut mine down too, trying to find employment and just have too much going on to care for it properly.

Roy, can you get a small one. A nano or maybe a 40 gallon to suffice the itch.

I shut down my 120 system a few years back because I wasnt able to give it the time it needed.
The kids have now asked me for a planted freshwater tank, so I'm going down the rabbit hole of planted tank videos on youtube...

I'm already plotting on how transform the 20L planted tank into a mini reef in a few years...

This hobby seems to go in cycles...you'll come back to it in due time.
