So tomorrow night should be the night the cichlids sell so I can start my 75! I can't wait. So far I've got my 5 gallon AIO and a 15 bare bottom. Once the 75 is cycled I'll be moving the 15 into that and replacing it with a 30 gallon sump.

Current Setup

I'm running a Noophsyce K7 so I already have a saltwater light on it. I know I'll probably have to upgrade to grow some of the harder corals, but it's a good start!

Tank was set up and started cycling. Got some dry live rock and some live sand. No pictures yet, but I'm out of state for a funeral right now. I'll be back in a couple of days and will start arranging the rock work. Algae was just starting to grow when I left so I should be good to add a small CUC and maybe one or two fish.

Pictures coming soon!

Added a Chromis, fighting conch, a couple of Cerith snails, and two margarita snails. Also, I got a small leather (possible finger or toadstool, unsure at this point) and a green hairy mushroom added, plus I had to frag my monti cap the other day and rather than throw it away, I added it and a small stick that broke off of my digitata. It's slowly coming together.

This weekend I'm hopefully arranging the rock work and then I'll get some pictures!

Here she is so far! So far it's a Green Chromis, a small CUC, a hairy mushroom, a small monti cap, some Zoas, a frag off of my Spongodes that was STNing, a small chunk of digitata that broke off during a cleaning, and a pile of rocks! We'll be working on rock scape today hopefully.

Stopped by to see @SawCJack00 yesterday and all I have to say is amazing! Picked up a couple of frags for the tank (if you wanna call them frags, they're huge!).

I lost my Dottyback last night. He was looking healthy and liked to come out, but I never saw him eat anything. He'd pick at the rocks plenty so I was figuring he was getting plenty of pods so I doubt he starved - didn't look skinny.
