Quick lil update I picked up some Armor of God zoas yesterday from a local reefer.
Here's a shot this morning after 15hrs in the tank.

To the right of the armor of zoas is rasta zoas further right from that on the bottom of the rock is a Miami Hurricane Chalice
Niiiiice. I had a chance to snag some at the yourreef live sale last weekend. I got a few others instead. Never had chalice before. Time for another learning curve :)

I was born and raised in MN but have lived in WI now for 2/3 of my life...I am a vikings and packers fan until they play each other then on those games I just watch as a football fan as the hardcore fans talk smack, good times.
It's like politics, people definitely are way too crazy and biased.

@Reef Nutrition
It's been almost 3 months now.
These clownfish are stunning! The color just pops, the white is so amazing it looks like it's been painted on and the orange is a very very deep color.
Most importantly they absolutely love the food, I just soak the pellets in selcon for 3 minutes, they get soft and the fish love it!!
I would definitely recommend TDO Chroma Boost to anyone with clownfish.
My OrangeBack Basslet will steal a pellet every once in awhile but prefers mysis.

So a lil update.
I recently started using Chemi-pure elite in my hob filter, water is CRYSTAL clear!!
I have almost everything ordered for the setup of this 40 breeder.
I have a Fijicube 800gph overflow.
I'm going to hard plumb the entire setup with dual 1" drilled returns with 3/4" loc line y'd off on each side going into quad wide flared nozzle tips.

A little more in depth, each sides return will incorporate 1" thread x slip bulkhead threaded into that will be a reducing coupler to go to 3/4" threads then the 3/4" loc line adapter screws into that then directly on the adapter will be a Y and then 2 short pieces of loc line with wide flare nozzle tips at the ends. (The short loc lines will be the 6 segment loc lines halved into 2x 3 segment lines.)
I have a crude drawing of what I'll be doing except I edited it and added some red lines where I'll be putting extra unions.
Also in that drawing I accidentally crossed the drains OOPS! And there is 2x 45s coming out of a T...I'm going to replace all that with a 1" pvc Y slip/slip/slip connector to reduce fittings and cost.

Right away next month I'll be ordering the final pieces needed to set this all up.
She wants vikings colors plumbing so here's a preview of that as well.
I will document the build when it happens and post it up on here.

Are you planning a zoa garden?
Yes I am, funny you ask, yesterday I just picked out a rock for my zoas and threw it in the brute to cycle.
Just need to get a few fragging supplies and try fragging for the first time.
Currently my rastas are growing on a snail shell that was glued to a frag plug and they need more room.

So thanks to a good friend here ;) today I was able to order the rest of the pieces needed to get this 40 breeder drilled and setup for my daughter.

Thank you so much @Katrina71 you're an amazing friend that's making a reefing dream come true!!
