    Are you going to paint the back glass or leave it clear?

    Thanks! This is just the beginning...as soon as I know my tank is completely stable again I will be loading it back up with SPS!!


    While I really like the appeal of a painted back glass, I will be doing a removable background As id like to still be able to see into it from the back to work on it.

    I started to get the coral set into place this afternoon. This made me a bit sad as it made me realize how much coral i actually lost during the time of living in our 5th wheel and having my tank at my brothers. It definitely got neglected and i paid the price for it. But it’s my own fault. It will take some time to nurse the corals that did survive back to their glory with color but I’m ready to take that task on!

    Here’s the fish room! It’s about 90% done, still need to cleanup the wiring and install the shelf and water change reservoir over the sink.

    Can I ask why you chose a bathroom sink, rather than a utility sink, I note that the sink space is quite narrow.
    It is a great build, sorry about the coral losses.

    Purely based off of space! I would love to have had a utility sink but it would not have fit. It does suck about how much coral was lost but it can be replaced,I actually dragged lots of it to my friends purely for the reason of if it died in my tank I could get it back!

    Here is a pic of what my tank used to look like so you can see how much coral I lost. It is rather depressing, but is also motivation for this tank!

    Finally got my water change station built installed and up and running!! I will be able to change up to 50gal at a time but will typically stay around 25gal changes. The best Part, No more lifting buckets!!

    Great setup! Love how you took advantage of the limited space in the tank room. I love how it turned out.
