wow a honda civic, i have a 55 and it was only 2,000 a stinkin 21 k though for a fish tank is nuts. cool interior under the tank though i love how most of it is netune and it all matches. also the space you must have to have that tank is huge, see i live in ny and there is no way i could fit that in my duplex apartment. also i hope your tank is doing all right, that weather hit you guys out there hard. i heard that they are raising funds for people that had their tanks wiped out by the weather. but you wont be needing any funds as i can tell lol.

I can tell you its not a cheap hobby thats for sure. I could have surely done it cheaper but i went the custom route so i didnt have to make many compromises as far as upkeep and maintenance. For me... thats a great thing... because if its hard i wont do it!! Based on what you spent on your 55 applied to my 305 you are at 10k....lol it adds up quick.


As far as weather... i was smart enough and in the fortunate position to have had a 22kW Generator installed on my home OCT of 2020. My tank and I were good, which is a total blessing because so many were not....

What is the fuel source for your generator? How often do you have to refill when it’s running consistently?

Hey bud, fuel source is natural gas from the local utility (They tapped my gasline that powers my appliances)....so no refills. During this past winter storm it ran for 39 hours.

Im hoping i can get some help from all of you that are good at identifying coral. I bought this piece as a frag in 2018 as an experiment to determine if my tank at the time was ready for sps. It was small, cheap, very brown and stayed brown under the radions. It didnt die but it didn't really grow, nevertheless I decided to keep it. In my current build, things have changed drastically... forgive my horrible picture taking(Its so much better to the naked eye). This coral is growing and is now developing a light pink color (Skin and polyps) with blue coralites. Its very striking, and i know its not done yet. Can you guys help me identify it?

Thanks for your help
