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 to Wyoming White flow 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 !!!
