    Default ETBReefer's Tank

    Alright, I'm finally at the point where I can show some before and after pics of my tank.

    Here's the tank the week after I bought it, moved that Biowheel on the right into the sump.

    Added Powerheads and painted the back deep blue. (I love the blue by the way). Custom built the hood with the help of a friend's neighbor.

    Ok, I promised some pics a few days ago, so here they are. Since adding my cleanup crew, I think one or two of the shrimps molted. Found one yesterday and one this afternoon and I could see through the exoskeleton...there were no organs or anything, so that's why I think they just molted.

    New Branching Frogspawn Frag (courtesy of XSiVE). Three Heads (one baby) with one more coming in.

    IMG 6248 - ETBReefer's Tank The Overflow Box I went to XSiVE's house for in the first place. I commented on how wonderful his Frogspawn was and he fragged one for me Thanks Man!

    IMG 6245 - ETBReefer's Tank Updated FTS

    IMG 6244 - ETBReefer's Tank The Xenia is doing much better, but still hasn't regained its color, could I move it closer to the T-5s?

    IMG 6243 - ETBReefer's Tank The Kenya Tree is fully open about 1 hour after lights on every day and has regained about 98% of its color.

    IMG 6242 - ETBReefer's Tank I know this isn't the ID thread, but I know these are pretty common. Pallys or Zoas? Anyway, the colony opened wider than ever today.

    I like your rock work. Those are paly's, are they blue in color? If you want to, you could move your xenia closer.

    Haha, yeah Chris, heater is in the sump. Cut the PVC return shorter to stop it from churning my sand...added more CUC and a shy Starry Blenny. Will update pics in the next few minutes.

    Since the last update, I have added a Starry Blenny, 5 Cerith snails, 5 Astrea snails, and 5 blue legged hermits. I have also cut my return plumbing back so that it doesn't stir up my sand bed. Here are some pictures
