Great job with the stand .
a solid foundation is the key ….,
that stand could possibly weigh as much as the tank sitting on it . But we know it’s solid .
Following along to see this build mature
agreed! I had a 75Gallon on a DIY 2x4 stand without center bracket - I would have felt ok putting a 90 on it.
Yeah, I was noticing that your CUC is pretty sizable, I'm sure that'll help. The live rock/sand was procured from tubs at the LFS?Started getting decent algae growth on about day 8 of cycle as well, less light would likely calm that (we ran at ~50% after the first 48 hours of Tim's cycle), but, have a cleanup crew on the job now..
We haven't intended to rush anything, but Tim said we're cycled!

Oh, and I forgot to comment on this: 22 hours of daylight. Jesus.
How do you deplug a frag? Been wondering.
I've been wondering if somebody makes 'break away' plugs, so you can just snap off the excess plug surface if it'll just be in the way.So far I've only done a few, still learning as well. I used a small small screw driver to pry at the base. Not sure about the softer-based corals yet but I've seen discussions about using a flat blade and sliding it under.
All Zoas will stay on plugs here since they'll grow over them.
Also saw a thread here where someone was modifying frag plugs with a dremel to make them look more rocky, changing the post to a smaller acrylic post and drilling holes in their rock prior to starting up the tank to have places to move them all around.. Looked pretty cool. Too late for that for me though
