Finally taking some time to get my 350 set up. It's had the display cycling for about 6 months with random ghost feedings. Just have a powerhead. Sump not hooked up. Was nervous about it on carpet as it's not real steady. Rental house so cutting out carpet is a no go.

Going to move my mated Wyoming whites and their rbta over. Also have a watchman goby and tailspot blenny that have all been together for 3 years.

Have a simplicity dc120 skimmer that was used in my GF reefer 170 till her replacement came in, it never stopped making bubbles in the display do I'll have to figure that out. Still need lights and wave makers. Have a icecap 1k to start that ended up too much for my nano.

Still trying to figure out rockwork.

Just my two clowns, watchman goby, tailspot blenny, and maybe 2 other fish. Maybe a falco hawkfish, matted file fish, algae blenny of some type, pygmy possum wrasse, or yellow tang. A purple firefish caught my eye at Petco the other day too.

It was easily the most peaceful fish I've had. Completely left everything alone, except pods. And it ate everything I fed, like a pig. Loved to sleep wedged in a rock somewhere.

@Jeeperz I see you're from Hayden. Close to Sliverwood theme park, I've been there a few times with friends and relatives. How far are you from Post Falls can't be too far as I have a nephew there and an aunt in Spokane we see quite often. Maybe we could trade frags once I get my tank up and running. It will sit fallow until I move out of the place I'm in right now. See my build thread. Link in my signature line.

Sad joke like in bad quality? Or difficult to put together? Or flimsy and not durable like our Ikea friends?

Just like Ikea. The finish is nice and all but it's just particle board. I broke several of the cam locks that are used to assemble it and found better quality ones at Lowe's. I'd also recommend sealant/silicone at all joints to help keep moisture out of the wood.

Oh ok, thanks for the tips. I guess the XL versions are made of solid wood (by a post I read).
How bad is the front glass bow? And would you mind sharing the rest of your equipment choices?
