    Things are doing great, I moved all the livestock over from my biocube and ended up with TONS of frags, happily getting some money back from local groups that are buying everything up. Hate having the DIY temp frag racks in the tank, but had to put it somewhere!

    Awesome meeting you! Here are those jawbreakers I was talking about- Did some cleaning up this weekend. Used this: To turn this: Into this: Going to try and find the time this week to build the book shelf that will be going next to the tank that will double as ATO storage and wiring area.

    Spent my superbowl sunday with a sick 4 year old and a RODI unit, but shes running! Electrical is just thrown where ever atm, trying to figure out a wife approved storage unit for the ATO container and apex/electrical. Up UP! And away! Had a few small leaks, one from a spot I had forgotten to glue (thank god for unions). And one from the seal on the overflow, both have been corrected and the cycle has begun!

    Major progress this weekend. Painting the back of the tank and sump, I used plasti dip. Back in the house. Aquascaping begins. Final product, linking a video I took as well if you really want to see the depth of the work, this was my first go at this, I think it came out fantastic! Plumbing complete! Tight fit! As she sits right now. Things left to do: Electrical FILL IT WITH WATER!

    Sweet, nothing to complain about I suppose? Can't get much more straight forward than this, and it looks really nice to boot!

    It's been a busy weekend, I got tired of looking at the god awful texture and paint in the dining room, coupled with the fact that I couldn't set the tank up untill the room was done and that I had a 3 day weekend I made stuff happen. Scraping begins, I had done this to my living room already so I knew the process, have to scrape away the texture layer after layer till you get down to the drywall. Pain in the ass and a total mess, I could choke the people that did this. sanding smooth and doing a light knockdown texture. Disaster zone. Primer. almost there! Done! Wife approved location in"her"dining room. Can finally get going on this now that it has a home!

    I'm currently in the processes of upgrading my biocube 29 to a fancy Elos tank that I came up on. I actually paid for it with mostly jawbreakers that my mother has been producing, I got the tank at a steal of 400 bucks out of picket and about 5 small jawbreakers, not bad considering I got the mushroom the size of a pencil eraser 7 months ago. The Elos and the stand are in 9.5 out of 10 condition, the glass on it is amazing, I am really excited to have such a nice looking tank, not a single scratch on it, the previous owner took great care of it. My current biocube was a used tank and has all sorts of scratches on it. Here is the tank as it sits for now, I am currently on hold due to the room that the tank will be going in is awaiting a remodel. The red walls and fake wood are not my idea, previous owners of the house had uh...less than appealing taste. Here is my current tank: And here is the Elos as of right now: Equipment will be as follows: Lighting: Two xr15 pros Skimmer: SWC 160 Return: Ehime 1260 Controller: Reefkeeper & Reeflink Flow: 2x mp 10's Reactors: BRS GFO/Carbon Rock: 70 LBS of BRS reef saver I love zoas so i'm thinking of just keeping it a mostly zoa dominated tank, but that could change.
