    I plan To post the progress of this Experimental tank with lots of photos to follow.

    I look forward to every ones input. This tank was built on a budget and will eventually be mainly a coral tank/Quarantine tank for the 32 gal DT.

    My fiancee loves to paint so i had this brain fart and decided to paint the back of this tank and i think it looks kinda cool. If i actually could paint this would be a great idea.

    I installed your standard Fluval HOB filter, at first with Media and Purigen. This week I got a very cheap surface skimmer from amzon.I decided to exchange the Purigen in the HOB with Carbon and add the Purigen to the Surface skimmer.

    Today I added 4 pieces of coral and 1 little Yellowtail Damsel. I added 2 mushrooms, one is an Orange Ricordea mushroom. and 2 Acans one i is an Hulk lord green.

    Please check out the photos and i will update as things change. Note i used the water at start from my 32 gallon biocube. All perameters normal parameters are in check and match the Cube outside of Calcium and Magnesium witch i am going to have to develop an individual dosing schedule for this tank.

    Checked water parameters again today,

    Nitrite - -0.1

    Did a 3 gallon water change afterwards.
