Reworked the wife's biocube 32 saturday night, so reason for some tank photos.

55g corner tank where the Bella Goby covers anything in bottom 10" with rocks "purposely", and "intentionally" just for the fun of it.

29g coral quarentine tank... currently has my Blue Maxima baby clam and Trachy Brain from the 55g that the Bella Goby took great joy in throwing gravel all over.

and 90gallon that's 4 weeks old and just starting to get the uglies. All our other tanks are low tech, but this one has the typical skimmer, refugium, etc. Goal for this is to become an Anemone & SPS tank.

I guess its time to start showing my tank :). This is a 180 gallon acrylic tank with tons of frag racks...this is why I cannot show a FTS yet. But I will show some corals I am currently growing until I set up my new frag tank. These photos are taken under 2t-5 blue plus bulbs and blues on my sbreeflights. The camera is a iphone pro with a 20k lens filter. Hope these look decent until i can get a FTS! This tank is in recovery after a crash last summer .

Walt disney on Bottom (lost most of my colony in crash but saved the original frag so was able to grow it again)

Ive wanted this piece from my LFS sice they have grown it from a small frag and I was finally able to get a frag of it which has completely healed and now will begin to grow. Also placed in its 2nd temporary position lol

Red Choris wrasse by far one of my fav wrasses...I had to get rid of mine because I treated my tank with berghias. It was one of my most docile wrasses I kept.
He used to be in my old reef tank, and then got moved the the 220. Had him for a few years now. Super cool fish. I love.coming downstairs early morning to fill nori clips, and see just his head sticking out of the sand LOL!

my tank is coming along! So sick of this biocube though. I am cycling a 20 long to serve as a frag tank for all my corals and nems while I plan my next tank build. My goal is to grow all my zoas out to mini colonies, maybe see if I can simulate moonlight to get my rock flowers to breed. I wanna get rid of the biocube and just focus on growing everything out in a shallower, more manageable tank. If any of y’all want any sonic flare or gobstopper zoas, I have some frags cut, feel free to PM me :p 90FB379B-5CD9-4EAB-B506-6D8C4808F8D3.jpeg 8E4DCB63-574F-4A09-862A-D33C946D6487.jpeg 9626FCEF-B792-4308-A65E-FB615603275D.jpeg
