Looks good my suggestion is keep doing what you’re doing. :beer:

I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the PS for these tanks to hit the market. Is that something you’re going to get or what are you using now, anything?

Tundra, what do you mean PS (still new so I am unsure). And to the rest thanks!!! I have done a ton of research and I also did a lot of light testing to find my personal par levels at 1 6 and 11 inches. I purposely placed all the corals in specific flow and light zone to grow and it's really worth the work!!! I also live my pruess's pets one of the largest self owned pet stores that sells corals in the country, the staff has helped a lot too. Thanks again for the comments and thoughts, keep em comin!

Absolutely love your tank! This is exactly what I would like. The problem is everyone I talk to contradicts each other.... People have me scared to death to even put 2 thinks in the same tank, because this will hurt that, this will sting that, etc.

Would you mind sharing with me, what you have for live animals in the tank? Did you get them at a local store or online? If online where?

Is the tank the standard setup that it comes with?

Sorry to be a pain, but it's such an investment and I'm so scared I'm going to "mess" it up.

BTW, do you have a book you use as reference or a particular website?

I'll stop now.... sorry for all the questions....

Love your tank but there's no need to show off.


J/k I'm just jealous that my nuvo is not set up yet
