    I got the green light to upgrade from the wife and my mother in law gave me some cash to find a craigslist tank to take over. I found this 100 gallon and this weekend, my wife and I got everything set up from the 65. I am adding the 3rd SB reef light tonight so the dark patch in the middle will go away.

    Since I suck at keeping SPS, i think on this rendition I will focus more on just vibrant colors with a lean more towards LPS and Zoas. If my existing sps turn a corner and recover then I am sure I will get the acro bug again. We shall see.

    I still have to put the doors back on and get my cords organized and I am sure I will tinker a bit with the scape.

    The scopas has not started eating my prepared frozen blend yet. He will put algae pellets in his mouth but spits them out a few times. Hopefully he ate some nori today and will take to the food soon. The LFS I got it from is mostly a storefront for a service company and they for real QT their fish, one small batch at a time and this tang was there for 3 months total and has good weight on it. Send food vibes his way.

    I have some travertine tiles in my shed and I think i am going to mount some of my frags to them so snails quit pushing everything around and I want stuff to grow out over the bottom eventually.
