Hi Everyone,

Starting this build thread late as I've had my tank up since the beginning of September. Here are the specs:
- 25 Gallon Mr. Aqua
- CPR Aquatics Aquafuge Small
- Sicce Cannister Filter
- Eheim Heaters
- Surface skimmer
- 2x Nero 3s
- Kessil A360x

I also built my own stand, which was easier than expected. Here's the beginning with the aquascape I created.

I went down the coral rabbit hole and got my first few frags...

A few more months down the line... I really went way too deep

I am serious out of room with this nano lol and please don't tell my girlfriend how much all of this really costs. Currently I don't have any livestock as I am in a fallow period after a velvet outbreak. I guess that is what I get for rushing things too fast. I also got way too into taking pictures of my corals and bought my first camera set up... will be posting some shots with the camera shortly.

Extremely amazing photos, along with coral selection. Stunning.
Thank you! I haven't updated the thread in a while, so here are some new pictures:







A bit of a sad update at the same time, I caught bjd from a new torch I got. I noticed something was wrong with my dragon soul 3 heads, but I didnt want to cut off the bad looking head. Well... work was crazy the following week and bjd spread pretty quickly through out my tank. I tried to dose some chemiclean and things have stopped dying, so I think I am in the clear.

Corals lost: 3 headed dragon soul, purple torch, green tipped torch, green frogspawn, and two acans. Definitely most upset about the dragon soul as I bought a single head and grew it into 3 (splitting into 4).
