Looks great. Well done as usual.
Thanks. Still need to work on scape.

Your tank looks to be stabilizing nicely.. takes so long with dry rock.

Got skimmer delivery today. This is a monster for these AIO's... lol

Thanks chef, my tank has its issues like everyone else‘s does but it’s doing pretty well. I appreciate you checking in on me every once in a while :)
I always wanted to try one of the Tunze skimmers but I don’t think the 9004 will fit in the second chamber of a lagoon 50. Yet another reason I should have ponied up a little more cash for the SR60 but I was hung up at the time on what I perceived as a low water level on it among other things. How are you finding the water line on the SR80? Any desire to modify the overflows to raise it up a little?

Yes definitely going to mod the overflows to raise it. I have the acrylic, in process of making some media baskets and then a cover for the back. First one looks a bit sloppy, but not going to see it so don't care much as long as it works.

picked up a T-5 hybrid from an cool R2R member.
Definitely enough light for this small tank now!
Little wire management, more leveling and figure out a new lighting schedule tomorrow.

Fishes.
The clown, tang and wrasse have had several tanks and moves. Many years the wrasse and tang are BFF, swimming all day long together. Clowns kinda... clown mean.

That’s interesting that your wrasse and tang are friends. My Tomini Tang and Orange Back Wrasse are the same way, always swimming together.
