    a big new addition. a pair of swallowtail angels. quite amazing fish. ive always wanted some of these "midsized" reef safe angels, and its really cool getting a pair. they are still a bit shy but eating on day 2. the male stays near the back and kinda chases the female away. hopefully they can pair up! also, one of the first additions is starting to be a bit less shy. i know they are super common, but royal gammas are so striking. such an underrated fish!

    90 AIO

    Hello all, new year, new tank. I know most people just use the FB page now, but that thing is pretty much a buy and sell only place. I like looking and talking about tanks! so, why not! After months of procrastination, ive upgraded from my 25 lagoon to a 90 gallon all in one tank. the tank actually comes from @Darth Tang who did a great build thread here on it. its a PA tank (I think) turned into an AIO. well i finally got it up and running and all my equipment. running 2 Hydra 52 HDs, MP10 & a Jabao, Tunze 9012 DC skimmer and Tunze ATO. probably going to update to feed straight from my RODI unit. its been running for a bit now, have 2 clowns, yellow tang and royal gamma that everyone bullies. looking at adding a pair of swallowtail angels next. have a few corals for now, duncans, hammer and gsp. not going crazy in on corals for now. want to set up some kinda dosing system for when i start to add things. overall looking good, breaking in the skimmer, so many bubbles. cant even put the cup on it for now, pretty much just have to let it bubble out. guessing that will work. have to say, darth tang did a great job on this tank. totally feeling its dimensions and footprint. using a buffet type cabinet for a stand and have it reinforced.
  3. they also have "jumbo" rocks.
  4. tank looks great! I've been wondering about the Gyre. how do you like the flow pattern? I also know the feeling of getting out and back in, and wishing you kept those little things haha. cant wait to see the tank move forward!
  5. Got my ATO moved to the closet next to the tank now. Really cleans up the area. HA is nearly gone, and the diatom bloom has gone away completely. Levels are also looking good right now. Feather duster has made its way behind the rocks, so wont be seeing a lot of him for now.... other then that, happy the tank is clearing up, and the clowns are eating.
  6. Diatom bloom has all but faded away. still a bit of HA, but its going away pretty quick as well. Starting to look more like an actual tank!
  7. dang, I really like the tank. I've been thinking about getting a hawkfish for my 30. between that or a candy cane hogfish. really like the colors of the tank.
  8. Also added, a brain coral, a few more snails and crabs, feather duster, couple mushrooms and some zoas.
  9. I added my first fish today. two clowns. they ate tonight already after being in the tank for about 8-10 hours, so i'm happy about that. here is a little underwater video of the tank. edit: quality went way down putting it on photobucket. yikes.
  10. This is a pretty cool app that is makes a motion photo of sorts that moves. I would really like to see this on some of the great tanks around here. Mine is nothing right now but here is what it does. not sure how to embad this on the site.
  11. did a rescape... think it looks much better.
  12. Stocking list. Fish: pair of clowns Goby shrimp pair or jawfish. not sure which I want. smaller algae blenny flameback angel maybe a smaller wrasse. and a BTA Coral: going to stick with mostly LPS. I want a few torches/frogspawns/hammers I really want a nice Trachy brain as the center piece. Also want a few zoas and some GSP. still have to set up my ATO and let it cycle, but the LR did come with a few snails still hanging on. Right now I'm just running some floss not using the InTank media holders right now. figured using Chemipure right now would be just a waste.
  13. Thanks, hopefully everything will turn out well.
  14. tank sealed, water test went well. Now added saltwater, dry rock, live rock. I built a scape before I put it in, but didnt quite turn out like I like it. I'm sure I will be tweaking it a good bit. Still pretty cloudy, hope it is clear by tomorrow. Super excited to have a saltwater tank in my house though. been awhile.
