    thanks! yeah everyone that sees it in person is like wow! it looks amazing!, then they always ask how big the tank is 3 times because it is so stocked with stuff it actually looks bigger than a 29g because there is so much to look at lol. i am lacking some yellow colors but once the rastas grow out more itll be nice.

    side note:

    when i get time in the next few days i will try to get close ups of the fish and inverts and some nice coral pieces. this is just a start =)

    Nice corals in there! Have you ever had a problem with the bta and the Koralia? I've always wanted one and been worried that it would get sucked in since you can't really screen it off.

    i am one of the few that are lucky and when i set the RBTA and the GBTA where they are they havent even moved an inch yet! (knock on wood lol) and the koralia is up the glass a bit and on the opposite side so it would have to do some climbing to reach it. i have heard stories about it though but so far so good for me! and thanks!

    well i am about due for an updated shot, here is the FTS with my new camera, not that great of quality with this new phone.

    i got rid of the old CPR style overflow and got a lifereef overflow, the thing is massive compared to my last one lol! this tank looks probably 300% better in person.
