    This will be a slow process.


    80g Deep Blue rimless (but in-wall per wife's demands) 48x24x16

    48" Vertex Illumina LED


    Looking from fishroom to poker room (to be done after the tank is established)

    Got the light up last night. This thing is heavy and bright. I had to dial it way down. Still need to hook up the Vlink to do the custom lighting via the laptop.

    Let the cycle begin.

    Dang going right for it with those SPS frags! If anyone can do it, you can!

    I got the polymorph from ebay. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...C2.A0.H0.TRS0&_nkw=polymorph+plastic&_sacat=0

    The SPS came from my frag tub that has been running for close to two years. I've had a couple of test frags in the display for a few weeks and they bleached. I raised the light and change the photo-period and things looked much better. This Vertex is WAY too much for a 48x24x16 tank. I'm hoping to trade it for a couple of Radions.

    That aquascape is really cool! And the way you bonded them I've never seen before, looks like it works well. Just curious of what you're keeping your Nutrients at, more specifically your No3(Nitrates)? That acan colony is beautiful! Well done :)
