It's been a few years since I've done any saltwater tanks. My last tank was a 75 gallon with softies, shrooms, ricordeas, and a couple of fish. Since I tore that one down to move, I've got a 110 extra high FW angelfish tank, a 75 gallon african cichlid (males) tank, a 20 gallon guppy tank, and a 10 gallon cherry shrimp and angelfish fry tank. Up until recently, I had a bearded dragon. When I sold him, I got a 5 gallon AIO tank. After adding some sand and (dead) live rock, I cycled it for about a month and then added a couple of snails and hermit crabs. I gave it another two weeks and made my first mistake: I added palys! Another two weeks and I got a zoa frag and some GSP. Last month I added a peppermint shrimp and the only fish I'm going to have: a clownfish. I upgraded my light last week in the hopes of getting some bird'snest eventually. It's been a fun experience!

welcome to Reef2Reef nice looking tank you have going.
Thanks! I'm trying to slowly get it going. It's one of 6 tanks in my house... The other 5 are freshwater though. I'm considering selling off my African Cichlids and converting my 70 back to a reef tank. That was my tank about 5 years ago, but it crashed when I moved and my wife made me tear it down. It's had my cichlids for about 3 years now, but the males killed all my females, so no breeding (the whole reason I got them).

Get that back to a reef for sure.
110 freshwater planted angelfish tank running two reef black box Leads, 70 gallon African Cichlid tank running Noopsyche K7, 10 gallon angelfish fry/red cherry shrimp tank and 20 gallon guppy tank sharing a Coralvue 48" strip LED, 15 gallon hatch/grow out angelfish fry tank running a fuge light, and my 5 gallon AIO reef tank... My wife wants me to cut back. She thinks I have a problem. I told her I have a solution!

Woohoo! Looking at my Eagle Eyes and they're sprouting a baby. My Hallie Berries, Eagle Eyes, and monti caps are all happy and growing. My stylo and digitata are doing good. I see new growth on them occasionally, just very slight. My pavona seems to be healing nicely after getting attacked by my Arctic Ice palys. I'm hoping my stupid Nuclear Dragon Eyes start opening back up soon. They just kinda peek out every now and then...

Do you think that live rock is more beneficial in sump than it is in the main display tank?
