Thank you. How is your build. I’m way behind. Anytime I get free I try and work on the build.
Is a great start of wrasse. Lol. I’m spoiled and have two great lfs. One is TSM and other Reefco. Trying to get fish from remote locations is proven to be difficult

Join the long list of haters lol

I probably will add a lineatus down the road. I lost my last one to spinal injury. Lineatus and rhomboid make a great color combo.

During free time I will slowly catch up to the tank today.
Started to plumb overflow box. I dry fit everything and make sure everything is fully seated. When glueing I make sure every joint is square and fill check firmest each time in case of an adjustment. I don’t like to use unions to help square up plumbing. Would rather white plumbing but had extra orange

Neptune cor20 use 1 1/4” union and tank was drilled for 3/4” bulkheads.. Wanted to keep it clean and not look like it was reduced. White3/4” pipe will fully seat in bulkhead making the reducer in elbow sit flush against bulkhead End product to come

Thanks this will be fun.
Wow that didn’t take long to start enabling. I can’t get anymore until I start moving fish over. Starting with all dry rock and sand so it will take time. I don’t want to introduce Aip, bubble algae or anything like that. I’ll let that come with coral lol


Looking forward to your new build!
Thanks. I can’t wait until I’m down to one tank and the uglies are over. Big tank to keep clean
