I’m probably gonna order about 20-30 more lbs of Rock.
Think we will save on shipping if we order together?


Just dropped in 15 blue chromis. I removed all the live rock and sand from my top tank in my alt system into the sump. I've been ghost feeding for a few days but I wanted to make sure the existing bacteria stays alive and expands. Chromis are a lot of bioload per the price so I went with them. See if you can spot them in the tank.

The rock looks good...I’d leave it like that. Wish my rocks didn’t look so retarded. They have no shape at all. I could aquascape softballs better than my rocks.
Haha just use softballs then. The scape will change once I get the Tampa bay rock. I did some research too and it looks like there's a 100 pound charge minimum. Looks like we could save some money if we order together. You interested?

The right island looks great - enough room for coral growth but I'm not sure what's going on with the left island. LOL...

Haha like I said, just a couple stacks. Plus, I'm not utilizing the middle of the tank where the par is highest. Need to work on that.


I got a freshwater storage container on Monday. I filled it up today with water and muriatic acid to clean it, and the sucker bows big time. Had to throw some straps on it for piece of mine. Still bows, but the straps are rated for 700 pounds each and the container only holds 70 gallons filled to the brim.





Also hung the grow light for what will be my 40 gallon cube part of the refugium for a rolling ball of cheato.


Gotta move those rocks to another tank in the system.


Curious to see how this $20 Amazon grow light does. It seems to hit the right spectrum, and has plenty of intensity. Need to get some algae soon to test it with. The display is starting to get diatoms.
