First topic message reminder :

So I'm on the last days of the 29. I've been quiet a good bit lately, because I've been holding my breath and crossing my fingers and all that other good stuff finishing this build and waiting out a cycle. Initially I bought this setup for the stand and the sump. The original plan was to snake my way into buying a DSA 70pro to build out on. So what started as a "I'll take the stand and sump for 100" turned into, just give me the whole thing and I'll part out and piece off on my own.

Well, that didn't last long obviously and 72 hours later the system was setup. That was in the late part of April. Since then I've watched over both my 29 and this 58 through its cycle. With the acquisition of a skimmer last week, all the pieces are finally in place. Slowly I'm monitoring nitrate removal from the system, and moving things in. I estimate another week until the contents of the 58 that are staying are set, and the 29 is ready to find a new home.

So then, onto my first pics.

i personally think their played out....but wifey loves "dorey" i frikin hate when ppl call these fish by the names of that nemo movie..it bugs me and she does it on purpose.....
im lookin into the mimic tangs. some actually look nicer than the common tangs you see at shop and in other ppls tanks....

im too lazy to read through this thread to find out so ill ask ya here
what kind of lighting are you using on this 58? kinda surprised you arent into the whole "DIY LED" scene. im also looking to tweek a cpl hybrid LEDs for my 110.

Suspect the hell kinda language is that boy???.........hahahaha
sounds funny but to ppl who dont know what your talking about it may sound trippy.

so no LEDs? how bout in the futur? for the upgrade?
you can get a 3X20w driver for 3 20W 6k-20k LEDs plus the heat sink for them alll for lil under 100 bucks.
i have so much cr@p saved up on my watch list on my ebay account it aint funny.
the LED itself is like one square inch and put out better lighting than MHs
and at way less than half the cost of them too...
im thinkin of starting a thread when i get mine and solder them up but im too lazy.
plus the baords arent too busy in the SW section

Do you ever water change and just end up sweeping up a pile of broken SPS? Does this only happen to me? Saturday I knocked a powerhead off that fell through my red cap. At the end of it all there was just this pile. A freakin pile of cap frags, digi frags, etc etc etc on my floor. If only caps were rare enough to make the disaster somewhat profitable. Alas. Rescape.
