Default Rhody's 2012 nano contest entry

For me this is a complete adventure. My semi-successful 80g reef has taught me a lot.

Thanks to frag fest, I won a 6 gal fluval edge. I hope to be able to modify it to my liking.

I'm gonna use what I got. Lol. And the price was right. Free. I'm looking to do a sump system using some old tanks I got kicking around. The sump volume Will prob end up being bigger than the display.

My goal is a simple very reliable system. It's worth a shot at least.

Free is awesome lol it should be a cool tank I always thought the limited access too tank would make maintance horid on a edge but ive seen some of the most amazing tanks in edges...
I hope you accomplish urban goal it seems like it on the right path

The Edge can be a great reef. It will really show off your skills.

I like the clean styling of the edge. There are some DIY things I want to do. Most of my DIY projects on my 80g work but arent the cleanest installs. At least in my eyes in comparison to the large amounts of sources on the Internet.

My sump idea is on the fence. It depends on how the layout of the edge is. I will be doing my dry tank pics right away which pretty much is my first actual look at the insides of the edge.

This brings up and extra challenge. I will call it the mystery box challenge. Lol.
Give a person a box with the unknown inside what can I make of it? I want to do a led light conversion for my liking of lps and tricolor sps.
