I think I'm going to really like the 22 gallon. For some reason it seems or looks bigger than it is. Maybe the fact I'm not putting a background on it or the 36" length. I'm sure scaping helps to, trying to give an illusion of more space than there is. When I look at it it gives me vibes of around a 40 breeder.
I had some time yesterday to move some of my sticks onto the new rockwork. Not my favorite thing to do. Broke some things, glued some things that didn't need to be glued (like my fingers), ticked some things off, but I got a lot of it done. I'll keep it all in the main/stable tank for now, until I feel it's safe to make the transfer to the new build. Here's a quick preview of what my not so distant future reef tank will be.
Took some quick cell phone shots of some of the pieces. Quality is not great and these are unedited. I really should brush up on my photography skills. I really think reefkeeping and photography go hand in hand. Where to find the time????? Anyway, here's what I took:
New light rack installed yesterday. Decided on using three AI primes. Should work well over the 22 gallon. I have been using four over a 65 gallon with good results. Sorry for the photo looking so dark. I didn't turn the room lights on. The two aluminum posts you can see are the remnants of the previous light rack. Once the new tank takes the current tanks place they will be gone.
