A while ago I introduced myself and my builds and had a few people want to see the progress on my hexagon tank. I’m done moving states now and finally got around to setting it up. So here it is! Pvc base for the bonsai and covered with as many coral skeletons as I could find for a “natural” look. Enjoy!

Starting them out low so they can get used to the new lights. I’ve never seen the framer happier.

Update! I have moved some corals closer to the light and added a little bit of a clean up crew as the algae was getting out of hand.

Decided it was time to add more corals and my first fish!! *aren’t verified names just look like the following: JF Boston Bean Digitata, Sunburst Montipora, unknown acropora, sunny D or similar looking zoa. Unknown BTA pinkish red tentacles with green base/mouth and two tomato clownfish (one looks like a cinnamon the other looks like a tomato but one is obviously older than the other so can’t say for sure)

Update! I’ve added a new fish yesterday. It’s a juvenile one spot fox face. He is very shy but is warming up slowly.

I’m not a of fan of hexagon tanks, and I don’t like eels, but I like novel things— you did yourself very proud on this build! Great job! :)
Thank you! That means a lot. Lots of time and thought put into this build. Coming up with and getting the pvc structure itself just right took almost a month. Not to mention looking for dead corals that would work with it. It’s been an adventure but a really fun one and I am excited to continue posting updates.
