I'm still working on the light, just finished the second coat of paint. I've already fixed the issue of it being off center and I'm hoping to have it working by the end of the night. Hopefully nobody is offended by my messy garage:)

The water is all cleared up and I'm happy with my rockwork. I still have a few more adjustments to make with flow and coral placement but it's coming together nicely.

You should be proud of all of your hard work! I would love some new fish but with the chance of disease, just not worth it. Baby Dory looks great!

I have a few updates; I have the cooling fans installed for the lights, I wish I would have done it sooner because I lost a ballast on my t5s. It's all replaced and working great now. Baby Dory is dealing with another infection but she is recovering well, I got ahold of Humblefish and got instructions on using the ciprofloxacin (thank you @tdlawdo!). I think cipro will be a staple in my fish medicine cabinet from now on. Here is the tank tonight

Amazing how two Petco tangs turned into such a awesome build :)
This is something that I've wanted to do for quite a while, I just didn't have the extra cash. I'm so thankful for everyone that helped make this possible!

I see a side hustle in your future. Members place livestock orders with you and pay you for the fish and your QT service. You get them from various sources, QT them and ship to the member after QT.

Great excuse for another build :p

If i could retire now I'd be perfectly content doing that at cost!
