Got some new toys. These are called Sea Sweeps. They are from the same guy that makes Sea Swirls, But these have attachments for Tunze pumps. I'm gunna add 1 to each back corner of my tank.

Wow, very cool. Is this a ULNS tank? I also dose lots of "magic potions" and heard good things about the ME amino acids. Might have to try that one after seeing your tank...

Great looking tank man. What the heck do the sea swirls do though? I'm apparently oblivious to this entire type of item

Let me know how these work out. I'm going to be adding two 6105s to my 180.

Yea it is low nutrient. I've been trying to get them a bit higher, but this tank just absorbs everything I throw at it. You will love ME aminos.

They spin the Tunze back and forth. Kinda hard to explain,

Snapped a couple iPhone pics and a vid today. No editing, and it seems like YouTube degrades the video quality. :/

Schnitzel's Sticks

Took some lazy iPhone pics. I am using a gel filter so the pics arent washed out blue.













Things have been going very well for the tank. Steady growth and good colors. Fish are healthy. Can't really complain. Just did a couple 50g water changes over the past couple weeks. Had some cyano start popping up on the sand bed. That's because I hadn't done a water change in 3-4 months. Cyano is already starting to go away.

Beautiful, what a tank! Great corals and fish. Do you have any daily dosing routines?

Nick this tank is just beautiful. With a bit more growth this is a TOTM contender. Would love to see some top down sps coral shots.

First time reading your thread. Much love, much love! (For the Harley too. Life is good in Southern California)

I have a couple of questions. What are the dimensions of your tank and who made it? I see you have/had another tank on the adjacent wall in one of your pictures. Did you transfer your stock over? What size was that tank? How did the transfer go if that's what you did? Did you lose anything?

I especially like the milli. Is that a sunset milli? Some of the pieces look peach colored (which I like as it is an elusive color) in the whole tank shots. The contrast of colors and placement are just spectacular.

Pulled out the real camera and took some shots. These are uploaded strait from my camera to my phone and then to Photobucket, so quality probably isn't that great. Enjoy ...
