Looks all fat and happy! Great photo
Thank you! He sure does have a belly. I was looking around the tank and he came out to say hi. No filters needed. I used my Note 9 in Pro Mode and messed around with the settings.

Our LFS had a purge valve off a broken FX6 canister filter and gave us this for FREE! Ours failed last night, soaking the bottom of the tank stand. We took the filter out of the system tell we could get parts.

I also use benapets and run a fluval fx4. On my 75g. Really nice looking tank
Thanks. In a couple weeks, I'll be upgrading to a 90 gallon with a 40 gallon sump, skimmer, return pump and overflow all from my really good friend.

Been working on the 90 gallon stand. Our friend, who we bought the setup from, is color blind and did not know he painted the stand purple. Sanded it down, added the edge pieces, wood puddy some of the areas, paint, paint and more paint! Slowly getting there between College and work. Should be up and running either before or by the New Year.

Well, our 75 gallon is no more. We transferred everything over to a 90 gallon with a 40 gallon sump. Everyone made it so far, tank is clearing up, I am fine tuning the Omega Vertex 130 skimmer and the return pump. A little noisy then what we are use to. The return is a little noisy also. I am hoping in a few days, things will quiet down.

Awesome tank! Will the real whispers please stand up lol
Lol. Thanks. But honestly I am a noob reefer. Only been in the hobby for 2.5yrs. Just upgraded from the 75 with a canister filter to the 90 with a 40 gallon sump.
