Over the last weekend my dad and I set up our new tank. All it really is is the stuff we had previously been using on my 40g, and his 20g in the office.
Pretty deep sand bed [1/2 shells and 1/2 extra fine]
PC light with 8 bulbs [planned to be replaced by either MH or a 48" t5ho fixture], and we put on two 24 watt t5 fixtures, just because we already had them.
Minimal amount of live rock :/ and some large pieces of base rock [now for the most part covered in coralline]
Filters: 55g fluval canister, 40g H.O.B, and a small submerged fluval filter for up to 30g.
-HOPEFULLY - one day we'll be able to swap out these little filter deals for our first refugium!
Sorry that I don't have any pics yet, but I haven't had any time to take them since the water settled.
It has four inhabitants brought from the old tanks: 1 Blue and gold blenny, 1 evil yellow damsel, a pretty big condi anemone, and my arrow crab [:
