    Thanks dude! My fixture is not dimmable. It's an older tek elite fixture. They were built like tanks and have held up for me for years.

    Nice bro! I wanna do a "actual reef" and by that I mean I want it to look natural as can be. I don't know where to start, I wanna be able to keep all corals. I don't know how I will do this

    Thanks dude!! I keep just about everything except "true" softies like leathers and what not. Stable water chemistry and consistency are the key if you ask me. Keep things simple and don't try to do too much. At least that's how I approach my tank.

    Nice acquisitions.

    What is the coral in the corner on the right hand side?
    How do you like your Mystery Wrasse?

    Thanks Cheryl!! Right hand side would be jack-o-lantern lepto. I love the look of the mystery wrasse but he can be a bit of a jerk. I plan to move him to give frag tank once I get it set up in its final location so I can get some other wrasses for the display.

    I liked those - I don't think my magnet frag is a long term solution honestly. I need another tank lol

    Little bad news. Got home from dinner tonight and turned my return pump (jebao dc6000) off for a little cleaning. Went to turn it back on and nothing. Fortunately I got it running but I'm not sure how long it's going to be good for. So I'm in the market for a new return pump. The pump returns to the tank and also feeds my external skimmer. Any suggestions for a new pump?
