    It’s slowly coming long, but here is my Waterbox 100.3 that I’m currently converting from metric plumbing to standard plumbing. The bonsai structure and dens were made by Paul at West Mariculture. I’m going either SPS-only or -dominant, so I thought the structure would make for a nice base.

    Nice setup, if you're planning to hang lights with that shelving stuff becareful I've seen it get pretty wobbly, home Depot and Lowe's carry superstrut which is probably a lot more solid

    Thanks, this year is it’s 10th birthday. I can’t believe how simple it it to take care of (I essentially don’t do anything but clean the front glass every so often and feed the fish)

    These are all incredible. Pretty new on this forum, not so active over here just yet but so nice to see everyone’s tank. Here’s my sumpless system. pics are after a month of no maintenance. I was away for the holiday season so I had a friend come in once a week and top off the tank.

    Goals for this year. I just got this loaded with my stuff from holding tanks and fully running just before Christmas. So now this year I need to finish the front facade and keep tweaking everything.

    You can go to my tank thread below if you want to see more.

    I’ll play....

    Things to know about me...

    First, I absolutely LOVE seeing pictures of immaculate tanks with crystal clear glass, white sand, huge SPS colonies, etc. It makes me jealous, to be honest. But, truth be told, I am a naturalist and pride myself in having a lot of knowledge about how things work and how everything in this universe is tied to everything else. That being said, I always wonder, when I see pictures of those gorgeous tanks, if they are true microcosms of a natural reef or merely a reproduction. Now, I’m not knocking anyone’s tank... like I said, I am soooo jealous to see them. But my tank, compared to those I mentioned, would be considered wild and woolly and perhaps a more accurate representation of what is really in our oceans. Or.... this could be all hogwash and maybe there is all types and variety of things under the water. The water/beach where I grew up (gulf shores, al) is one of the most beautiful coastline areas in the country yet the water there is not crystal clear and nothing about it is ordered.

    When you see my pictures, keep all this in mind. The glass on my tank has purple coralline algae and often a slight layer of green “smudge” algae. My corals are just kinda stuck places, and my sand is by no means white. Heck, thanks to the Clarkii clowns and pistol shrimp I can’t even keep it level! I have an addiction to corals so have too many of them.

    My goal for 2019 is to purchase a filter for my cannon camera so I can take better pictures!

    Still recovering from a dramatic alkalinity swing due to my ignorance and some faulty equipment and lost some SPS and damaged others. What survived is coming back strong and the others are happier too!

    This year I want to get better at reading health signs from the nature in my tank. [​IMG][​IMG]
