Some pic updates. Got a lta. Seems to be loving the tank. Eating well. Loves the scallops I feed it. Clowns have not gotten interested yet, but they are still young. Dealing with a some cyano. Trying to limit feeding and some light. Cheato is growing good in sump with new LED light. Need a recommendation for a yellow fish, thinking goby? What do you think?

Tank seems to be maturing well over time, with the exception of cyano. Livestock are healthy

Yeah not sure if it's my feeding or ? Using RO/DI. Skimmer is doing its job, everything seems to be healthy. Could be some detritus in my chaeto?

Cyano should go away soon, it’s common in a new tank, but might wanna watch over-feeding. That favites frag you got looks good. Also, I don’t know if that anemone is a bubble tip, looks more like a long tentacle or sebae to me. Overall great build though good luck!

Would love to know the "how to" of your stand. I am in need of a new one and was planning on building. Did you use any blue prints or just wing it?

No blue prints. Just general building knowledge. I will try to put together a general drawing of the 2*4 I used and then the outside is just pallet wood. Attached. Paint is white boat paint and clear by Rust-Oleum. Keeps the wood dry. I have made a little mod by drilling a hole in back to put a vent fan. It was too sealed and kept moisture in.

Basic drawing of framing. Outside covered with 1/8" plywood, inside covered with plasitc coated 1/8" fiberboard. Entire stand painted with boat paint. Then I covered with pallet wood stained and polyurethane.

Thanks. I need to take some new and better shots of my setup. Need to do some wire management as well.

Well sad news today. LTA took a trip into the power head. I turned it off, it came down few hours later, but didn't move in any way. Didn't close up to protect itself. It's a gonner. I think its a little too early in my tank. I'm 5 months in, was doing well for a few weeks, ate well. I would love for my clowns to have a good home, but I will wait a while. So I bought a leather for the time being.

Update. Not much going on. New fish, he brought it with him. No quarantine then, but I have one now. Royal got the worst of it and hid under a rock where the crabs ended up with a good dinner. All fish in quarantine ATM. Although pictures of tank and fish prior to incident.
