Seems like it's been months since I started this project. First built a new cabinet for my 90 gal. The boss approves of my work!

Just got a small CUC and some Pods in the tank today.

And a couple of Firefish in the quarantine tank doing time.

Stand... incredible craftsman ship, plumbing looks clean and sleek, aqua scape as well. Good rock placement. Look forward to see more.

How are you liking it so far? Thinking of getting one myself.
Very well made. And the shipping container was so strong, I think you could have driven over it with a truck - heavy. It's sent from China, so it takes awhile. The lights are amazing to play with. I use an iPhone to control the lights. It took a bit to get it to "see" the wifi signal. Programing is interesting. If you watch the video on their website, it will help setting up your program. I struggled a bit with it. Would have been nice if there was a "average" or startup preprogrammed example to emulate. But all is good now. Lots of flexibility. Way more than I will ever need. And lots of power. Also way more than I will ever need. I really like the light.

Howdy from southern O. Been awhile since I uploaded a pic to the thread. LOL. Had a blue spot puffer go nuts on my corals. It was amazing how much damage it did before I got it out and gave it a new home. Anyway, I'll upload some new pics soon. Thanks :)

I’m up near Corvallis.
Still have to drive a ways to get to a good salt shop. Any good shops in your area?
My wife wants a puffer, I’ll have to talk her out of it now.

Petco nearest us had some ok corals and fish a few years ago. The guy actually had a reef tank and ordered stuff in regularly. When I first started my first tank most livestock cane from there. Still have my Clown fish from there!

So do you order all your livestock then?

Hello! Well that's a great question. Actually I do pickup fish that need to be "saved" from Petco. That's how Humblefish and I kinda met years ago. Sick fish that needed help.
But I do order online too. Live Aquaria mainly.
