So a little about me and my tank. I started my saltwater adventure back in 2013. I had a 55gallon set up for bout year had to move. And the tank didn't take the move well so I just got out of it then. So lets go to 2016 I got back into the game. I had a 47gallon bowfront for few months spring a leak. So I rushed a round and found a 55gallon on Craigslist got home and filled up and it leaked when I did water test. So I took all my live stock to my LFS and sold for store credit.

Few months went by and I found what I have now. Idk what they call it but it's got the mane tank and the sump is ur stand just like what u see in some of ur fish store.

Nice tank. I have never seen that type of set up. It looks like the top of the stand is clear and you can see down? What size is the DT?

I have only seen them at my LFS. But know the sump is a big acrylic stand and it has 2 big acrylic pieces that split it up into 3 sections. And it just sits on the out side eage of the stand and the 2 acrylic dividers

I absolutely love leopard wrasses. I had a blue star leopard wrasse for a couple years and it was my all time favorite fish. It died when hurricane Dorian hit and my tank crashed when the power went out. Saddest day I ever had while in this hobby.

We got baby eggs!!!!! I have had these two Wyoming White clown fish for probably 4 years first fish in tank. They started the cycle. And this is the first time they have played eggs. So now I can say I have a mated pair lol. I know they won't make it in the reef but what a cool thing to happen !!!

Few pics of the new blue star leopard wrasse!!! I am surprised she is still living after being left at FedEx facility over night and came a day late. But she seems to be doing good. She ate some R.O.E. will be going tomorrow to get some live brine shrimp. To mix with the mysis shrimp. That's how I got the last leopard to eat frozen.just thought I share.

Oh yea sorry for not the best pic. It's hard to get good pic of fish with my phone

Just wanted to post a quick update. Tank is looking good. I have been busy with back to work and side jobs on the weekend 7 days a week takes alot out of me but was lucky today to get a rain day!!!... But as you can see stuff has started to take off. I want to say it is from the new reef Brites I added couple months ago. And I have really been trying to keep my hands out the water. But it's hard. Only this I can see is I am starting to see few spots of nasty bubble algae. And maybe moth ago I lost my aussie green torch out blue everything else looked good. But just wanted share a little why I had time. Thanks and hope everyone is staying safe
