Default Pictures finally (hopefully) working

This is going to be my tank journal with pics thread.
Tank is 90G cube 30x30x24.
Sump is Eshopps ADV-200 plumbed through the floor situated in the basement.
Its a four sided viewing tank with the overflow placed where the pillar is situated. Took about two weeks of cementing these marco rocks together with E-Marco 400 aquascaping cement.
I'm going with a single Jebao SCP-90M for water flow in the tank for now which has already blown away all the sand on the opposite side.

Sandbed is in, its been filled with water, and im currently doing fishless cycling at the moment.

Nice!

Excellent job blending the tank into that space!

My only critique would be to ditch that free-standing rock, just my personal opinion. Nice rock work all around.

Looks great! Have you decided what corals you will be placing in the tank?

Default 6 months update

Had the tanks running empty for 2 months Nov and December.
Finally decided to buy some fish on Boxing Day and over the next couple months, put two batches of fish through the QT process with copper power, general cure and fenbendazole.
Current inhabitants:
  • Yellow / Powder Blue / Purple Tang
  • Midas Blenny
  • Black capped basslet
  • two black onyx clowns
  • orange back fairy wrasse
  • lubbock's wrasse
  • bangaii cardinal
  • 70 trochus snails

RIP - in total bought 6 dartfishes (firefish x 4, scissortail, blue). 3 firefish that fought each other to death. The other 3 all jumped and I can confirm that dartfishes can fit through 1/4" mesh even though they look like they physically cannot.


March and April started adding corals into the tank. It will be a mixed LPS/SPS tank.

  • Gold Hammer
  • Rainbow clove
  • Flamethrower chalice
  • Rose monti
  • Neon acro
  • Rainbow goniopora

  • Red Diablo acro
  • Purple Valida
  • Hellfire Milli
  • Kung Pao monti
  • Aquaman monti
  • Appleberry monti
