Well. I've lost a couple of fish now. First my mandarin which was fat and looked happy. Now my lawnmower blenny which was fatter!

The blenny was just missing his eyes and mouth. Well I was reading on the sally lightfoot crabs and found a post from someone that saw when one jumped on a blenny and cut it's eyes out.

I think my sallys are the culprit because fish seem to die over night.

One is over 3 inches across and the other around 2 1/2 inches.

I would put them in the sump but they'll probably start eating up my pods.

Ugh!!!

Just a video I did a month back. All done on my iPhone! Gotta love Apple products. Make sure to watch in 720p. Looks a lot better.

Looking sweet Jesus! After watching your vid I tried to record my tank with my lady's android and it cant process the LEDs properly. So I did it with my Envy and it worked but it is very low quality. Good job man.

All done on the phone. No computer at all. Video was shot with the phone. Graphics and music on there as well. Uploaded to YouTube from the phone too.

Wanna make and edit your own vids?... There's an app for that. Lol.

There's an app called iMovie. Let's you crop and add fades and graphics to the video. Also let's you add any music you want. Its pretty cool.

Not sure how you'd do it on a droid.

Just a few full tank shots I took today. I lost a few fish but tank is still going strong.



Played with the camera settings on my phone a bit on this one.

I like how you keep the koralias clean. What kind of frags are those on the sand?

Looking good Jesus.

I gave the Koralias a vinegar bath right before the pic. Lol. I clean them out almost monthly if I don't the build up of the gunk slows down the flow quite a bit.

I don't know exactly what the frags are I'm holding them for Steve. There an acanthus and a ricordia and some zoas. I'm bad with the names tho.

Here's a pic.

Anyone know what this is? I'm pretty sure it's a worm just not sure what kind. I noticed it on the underside of a rock when I picked it up. It receded very slowly into a hole when I touched it. It's greenish with yellow and it looked like it had some kind of webbing on it. Kinda weird

Yeah. I just looked them up. They're either spaghetti worms or hair worms. Ugly looking things either way. Lol

It is a spaghetti worm, very beneficial for sand beds and cleaning up detritus. The frag you gave me looks exactly like this pic? It had the spaghetti worm on it and it already moved into my DSB. I was going to purchase some from pacific farms but I guess I got lucky, hehe.

I thought I had pulled that one out. I might have missed it. I didn't want to give you something that may be bad since I didn't know what it was. I guess there was more than one In there. Lol.

I just looked over the tank and I have quite a bit of them on my sand and on tiny holes on most of the rock. Pretty cool!

If you ever decide to get rid of them let me know, I will be more than glad to take them off your plate. Those suckers are expensive from Indo Pacific Farms.

Well as you all already know. I took the tank down about two months ago. During this time I've been using my sump as a frag tank. I was able to keep a couple of my corals. I also convinced my buddy to sell me back some of the corals I had sold and my hippo tang. I kept all of my equipment and it's time to set the tank back up.

The original stand is no longer usable. Has severe water damage so I decided to build a stand over the new years weekend. Here are some pics. I started on Saturday the 31st. Today it was stained and door installed. I will add the poly coat tomorrow. I will post more pics once the tank is on it.

This is my first time ever at building any kind of furniture as you can probably tell.


Frame out of 2X4's and a 2X10 for the front radius(curve)







Wrapped with 1/4 inch oak plywood.




Stained red chestnut.




Black glass door from old tank.
