    Default Cableguys 72 bow front

    This was my first official saltwater reef tank, and now I am learning it is a little too small for what I want.

    I just snapped some quick pics, so the tank is dirty and not in "show" condition. But what can I say for going to school 4 hours a day (M-Th) and also working 40+ with a job 35 mins from home and owning a home... its leaves very little time to do things like clean the sides of the tank. Ohh and cant forget about Calc 2 homework that takes 3 hours to get nothing done.....

    Also I am noticing something like cyano starting to pop up as you can see in some of the pics but this stuff is just a light brown color... maybe just detritus but there is a ton of flow in my tank.

    Yeah that would make since... it is sand and also Ive seen them more on the glass now.

    I started to dose a little Phyto-feed and people say they can make diatoms spike... so now that you point that out that is exactly what that is... I will have to stop the dose and see what happens.

    Thanks for the complements.

    I dont know about good work... but Ill try... hahaahaha

    I do know that I want to go to something like 48x36x26 or maybe 60x36x24/26..... I love DEEP tanks.


    I just counted because the most I ever counted was 8 and I just counted 9. One looked kinda small so I did a quick re count and got 9, and that doesnt include what may be inside the rock that I cant see. So either another one hatched or I am having urchin babies... not even sure how they mate to tell you the truth.
