Hello all,

Longtime cruiser of the club, first-time build thread poster.

I'm not going to bore you with details of when my passion for the hobby began and my first fish tank... yada yada yada.

I know what everyone came for... pics and videos! Please be patient with me as I figure out how to post videos and pics on this forum. I got it down pat on my local forum so forgive the missteps while navigating the learning curve.

Shot these last night, enjoy!

Thanks guys! 1.5 years on this tank... a lot of corals came from my old 125-gallon I ran for 3 years and some were added newly to this tank.

The lighting is currently two Ocean Revive T247 fixtures and one 400-watt MH with a 14k Radium bulb in it.

I'm in the midst of a LED "upgrade" experiment. Kudos points goes to whoever can name me which of the 3 fixtures is the MH one... left, center, or right. [emoji6]

Thanks guys for the compliments! It's much appreciated and I also like the fact that I don't have to name some corals... that there are plenty of acroholics on this club to just spot out an Oregon Tort. [emoji3]

I do frag locally but have never tried my hand at shipping. Once the busy season slows down with work and if there's enough interest, maybe I'll shoot out some frag packs and give a good discount for my first recipients to be my guinea pigs.

The change happened a lot quicker than I would have imagined!

Nice tank!!! I'm sure I already told you that the shortcake acro sick along with the Oregon tort.
Thank you sir! I take no credit for the aussie shortcake as I bought the colony that way. The Oregon tort however, has been with me for 3.5 years now. Keep in mind I do frag it often but it's been a good grower for me, despite the reputation otherwise.
