    Thanks for checking it out, appreciate it!

    Thank you! The stand was made by a local club member, he does phenominal work, I'm really blown away with how they got everything exactly as I specified, like to the T!

    I've gone through my fair share of bigger tanks, and mid size tanks. I wanted something I could move easy and would look good anywhere! It might be my favorite build yet! Thanks for the kind words.

    I've found not one, but two tiny rock nems growing on this rock. I'm pretty sure they came from the PO, I have moved a lot around, chipped a lot of rock, but still cool! Means I have 6 rock nems now, at least that I know about!

    I wish I went closer in on them. Sticks are doing really great! Starting to see growth!

    So the evolution of this carpet nem has kept me on my toes. It seems to like the back of the tank, but today it's on the glass bottom instead of the rock. I've removed the back rock structure, as to keep it from toppling over again, because that's what happened the first time. This 22 gallon space has been arranged several different ways in the past 5 or so months, it's getting to be a bit silly. Hopefully it'll nestle it's way into this area and be happy. I'd like to see my clowns hosting it.

    scrapped the carpet nem. Couldn't live life knowing that it might clog my overflow when I wasn't looking.
    Alright, broke out the DSLR. No more sand. Minimal algae on the glass (sans bottom) and I'm starting to see coraline on the bottom already. Everything goes to plan, the bottom will be a zoa grow out as well. GSP kind of just sat in the corner, starting to take off, will need to move it soon.

    Without the sand in the bottom it's looking a little bit empty. I'm definitely able to see the places all the stuff builds up though. It's mostly in the back side of the tank. I also had a little bit of cyano break out around the zoas, and I chalked it up to flow. I ended up turning on the MP10, and it seems like it's making a big difference.

    We had the windstorm and snow a few weeks back, and I lost power for 2.5 days. I only lost two pieces of SPS, unfortunately one of them was the Flame Fox. Luckily things are coming back strong.

    I've collected a few more anemones, but think I'm going to go ahead and move into a Colorado Sunburst once I find a nice one! Zoanthids are growing fast, and SPS is encrusting and growing as well as coloring up.

    You should put some montipora's on the bottom, mine are starting to cover my bare bottom and it looks great.

    That's not a bad idea, I was thinking zoanthids will eventually take over the bottom. I was looking at a favia pack as well, there are a few different options, but it's a small space, and it'll get there very quickly, no matter what route!

    Yeah, I think there is another baby like that growing, they spawned in the tank I bought them from, and it looks like it came in on some rock.

    Losses are part of the game, I've been pretty lucky with this tank, thanks for checking it out!
