Got rid of my 50g macro and got a 40g breeder. Not much difference I know but its DRILLED!! Very Happy
Makes keeping it clean so much easier!

Tank did not come with a stand but thankfully it was the same footprint as my 50g so I just re-used the stand..



Water tested..




Made the rock lean against the two outer walls. there's a big space in between the two for frags/whatever.

Right side..



Left side..



Clownfish..



Darth mauls..



I'll post more pics soon Smile

There's a starry blenny in there too but he's being really shy Sad

1 x 96w pc 50/50 bulb and those crapy marineland leds. I bought a 150w halide to put over, just have to configure a way to hang it Neutral

Cool! What do you plan to keep in the aquarium? Primarily macros again, or more corals?? Right now it looks like you've got a mix. Smile

Well for starters, NO HAIR ALGAE. So probably no macros, they seemed to collect it Sad

Right now, its a acro, handful of zoas, chalice, xenia.

Whenever I go get somebodies corals it will be used as a quarintine tank. Otherwise it will be used to keep the stuff my angelfish likes to nibble on Sad

Sounds like a good plan. thumbs up And, I know what you mean about macros collecting HA. It hasn't taken over my tank by any means, but there's always a small presence of it in my 47 gallon. HA loves my koralias... grumble

Looking good, Eric! Very Happy

I'm jealous how luscious your frogspawn is. Euphyllias just stay all shriveled in my tank. Sad

I'm not sure if that's baby sea lettuce. think Kind of looks like it, but I've never kept sea lettuce before and don't really know what it should look like...

Cool pics! Your camera always takes such clear pictures. Im super jealous.

That's unfortunate for the brain coral, but it looks like it still has quite the potential to bounce back. Good luck with that Smile

Thanks Smile

yeah I hope so it wasn't looking real happy in the DT so I thought I'd give him a shot in here.. no tentacle extension but he's much puffier which is good Smile

@Samantha, not really sure why it receded so much. I had a few other things show recession as well but others (like the frogspawn) continued to do fine Neutral

yeah i can't tell with the sea lettuce either.. its only like .5cm at most so I guess its just wait and see..

Shame about the brain, but it looks like it's coming back. fingers-crossed

Yeah, keep an eye on the "sea lettuce"...just in case it's bryoposis or something...
