Talking Nub's 25g Mr. Aqua sps build

Hey guys! new to the nano forum! I had to massively downsize and figured I would give nano keeping a try. I figured I would put a small build thread up of my progress.

Highlights:
Mr. Aqua Low iron 25g Rimless tank
Vortech MP10ES
DIY 24led dimmable light
Bubble magus NAC3.5 cone skimmer


ON to the PICS! (crappy cell phone for now)


First thing I had to do was make a light, I decided on 24 led's, (11 RB,1B , 8CW, 4UV)

More on the light---


Next to-do was the sump, I am using a small tank I had laying around, tossed in some baffles and plumbed it up. For Flow I am running a mag7 to a manifold that feeds the carbon reactor, DT, fuge and soon a gfo reactor


Gathered some rock for my aquascape, weighs about 15lbs, I plan to put live rock in the sump.

I decided to go with the gla$sholes(dot)com super nano overflow w/ teeth, I highly recomend this product.
Drilled and hung


Again, sorry for the crap cell phone shots but here is where i am today, everything is ready to go just waiting for my rodi to pump out 30 gallons of water.

led is the future, ill admit the DIY was hard but i did it so i can change led's out as i see fit. Ive used MH and T5, liked t5 better this is my first time with led.

how is your red planet doing? mine changed from almost all red to mostly lime green with red tips and polyps. that was after taking it from a halide tank and putting it in my led tank.

It looks about the same, but i think it came from a LED tank. I did just aquire another frag of it from a halide tank. Ill try to break out the good camera tomorrow and snap a shot of it.
