It's picture time.
This is what the tank looked like several days ago, with my crappy lights.
Last summer, I added the sump. Here it is during leak testing.
I used to run a Coralife 125 (long-story short, I replaced it).
I love my slim skim much better.
Oh look. Oceanic was nice enough to send me a new skimmer body to replace the one that leaked. Too bad it was over a week after I already got a new skimmer from MD.
Hello, mr. crabs.
For a while, I had 2 pacific cleaner shrimp. They didn't last more than about 3 weeks. They had bopryds (parasitic isopods), which I hadn't noticed until I brought them home from the store. I was going to remove the bopryds, but could never catch the shrimp.
I met up with a guy from the Cleveland forum and got the corals I have now.
Then I got some zoanthid-eating nudis. Happy little guys at this time.
Then they died by freezing. I dumped the small cup of water on my back porch. lol.
I made a cool little diy coral viewer. 3" pvc and 1/8" acrlyic. Works great.
My orange monti cap started browning out (expected), and then got stn (not so expected).
So I dipped it using tincture of iodine. Lesson learned.
Now I have the correct medication to dip next time.
I would like to get some of these guys from John at Reef Cleaners.
I am hoping to build a new stand within the next few months. It should look something like this, minus the door pulls which detract from the beautiful grain of zebra wood. I am going to use magnet catches on the doors, instead.
