Lol don’t worry when I plan on stocking your palys I’ll just come steal yours. My little tanks too small right now but we plan on upgrading probably next year to a big boy tank. Just not allowed in our apartment, but I’m thinking at least 55 gallons with a full sump setup
Thats what i got for my frag tank a 55g with 30g sump.... when you get ready for it let me know wouldnt mind helping at all. We can talk bout it might be able to help you with a sump option.

I can even help by maybe coming up with a sump so your not spending hundreds. Here is a pic of mine i built my own sump. I work at a glass facility so i can score some glass on the cheaper side.

That’s freaking awesome. I feel like I need to get handier to keep up with some of you guys. Was talking to the wife about getting a 3D printer cause I order so many printed things for the little reef.

you’re an acan man right? I added those three new ones and that fluffy one I had has closed up now. Is this normal? Idk if he’s not getting enough flow now because I put that tiny colony on the rock or what.

Did another auction on Whatnot from Murrman’s reef. Really unimpressed by favoritism towards certain people and the holier than thou attitude tonight from one of the guys on there. Gotta say it left such a bad taste in my mouth I’m gonna have the wife pick up the piece I won and walk away from it. Plenty of vendors in the state who are much friendlier. Maybe I’m the ******* but that’s okay too. Time to plan a trip to Biggs
