I'm backkkk

It's been almost a year since I've been on here. Forgot all about it until I got a notification last week.

Here are some updates since I was last on.
Before I left I had a 120 that just got hit with ich and a 27 cube with Se b&w clowns and a double stacked 29 qt system.

As of now
I have a db 30 and a 27 cube both reefs that share a single 55 gallon sump (my old cichlid tank)
Wife just bought me a 93 cube and that will replace my 27.

Threads are no good without pics so here you go

Sweet gift!

Do not tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don't tell them where they know the fish.

Yeah I guess it'd have to be. Not sure it will be after the $150-200 I spend on rock for it though. Not to mention the new pump and the fish

Re: I'm backkkk

Welcome back. Ever an expensive hobby. The investment (financial and temporal) before you even have a stocked tank is astounding! Your tanks are beautiful, and that cube looks like it'll make a nice addition!

Thanks! Don't think I've ever been told my tanks are beautiful... by another fish loving person lol. This setup has only been running about 2 1/2 months now. I just got into sps about the same time I started this setup

Re: I'm backkkk

Really liking the cube for a reef setup. Had you considered using dry rock for the core of your reef.? Should make the initial setup cost somewhat less expensive.

Yeah that's what I'm doing for the 93 along with the live rock I have.

Thanks. Did alot of cleaning today. Trying to get rid of the gha that popped up last week. Going to order some acrylic robs and epoxy tonight so I can get everything ready to put the 93 in. All that's left is a couple pieces of Tonga, return pump, and bigger powerheads. For now I'm going to use the ones I have

Been awhile once again since I posted. End of march the 30 and 93 crashed hard. Lost 90% of my coral and also got aefw. Yay. Went 2 1/2 months acro free and have now filled the 30 with 26 frags from battlecorals. The 93 hadn't had much going on as I've been focusing on buying all kinds of equipment. New apex, cal reactor, just tons of stuff. Photo bucket doesn't want to work right now so I'll get pics up later
