After getting inspired by the many great softie setups, I embarked on piecing together one of my own after dusting off a 29 gal I had lying around the house with corals from my two larger tanks.

mfinn,

What are you using for lighting?

I just got a 240 from GC's as well, only mine is 60x36x25. Mine is going to be mostly soft corals as well.

I have 3x250 watt 14k Hamilton, 2x160 watt VHO 50/50, and 2x160 watt actinic.
All the VHO's are left over from when I used all VHO lighting on the tank.
The combination of all the different vho and mh gives a nice color, IMO.

60x36x25 wow, that's going to be a landscaping dream.

Finally got the upgrade done on my wife's 20L (now a 40B). New lights, too. The T5's pop.

Yep it's a capnella. It is one of my favorites. Sometimes you can find them in the coolest green colors.

Thanks, he gets all frozen food, and is fed about once a week. I try to vary it as much as possible, krill, silversides, shrimp, ect, all soaked in selcon. He recognizes me as the one who feeds him and "fishes' whenever I'm near the tank. I've had him about two years, and he is about three inches long.
