Looks like it was born there. Cant believe the bubble coral is letting it live there like that. Epic bro

I'm going to have to remove some skin of the toadstool in the move. It's fuse to two rocks and the skeleton of that candy cane.

If your gentle you can remove the rocks and candy and with out damaging the toadstool firm and gently pulling of the rocks from the toadstool should remove with out damaging the leather

I suppose I didn't mention I wouldn't have just be cutting it away. I'll be nice to it...I also may leave it fused to the skeleton in back of the candy cane and remove it from the rock...

It looks cool like this.

Ok so, been busy for the last few days.

180 should be here as early as next week so I needed to get my butt in gear.

First thing on the list, build the "sump stand"

This is the stand that will hold the sump and most major components for the DT and Frag tank.

72"x22"x37"

Next steps, upgrade that 20a to a GFCI, I'll make panels in a loose shaker style as soon as 1/2" Baltic birch is available again. They will paint a dark grey and be supported by a French cleat /aluminum Z channel bottom and inlayed magnets top.

Sound down. Didn't realized the music was so loud.

Just a minute and a half view of my tank during ramp down.

Bro i don't know how I missed this but it is looking straight fire in there!

Lowkey in already planning to install one at the base of the chandelier in the living room, staring down directly at the tank..
