A couple shots...

Recommended Posts

Figured I'd share a few pics from my new 6' see-through glass box. I'll do a build thread (I know Mick wants to see it) once the tank is done to my liking. At the moment its not ready for a thread.

Kevin, what kind of fish are those in the second pic? And how big is that tank? It looks sweet, it's very deserving of a build thread man.

Thank you.

 

2nd pic is of my Hawaiian Fancy Bicolor Anthias harem. 1 male & 6 female.

 

Tank is 72"L x 18"D x 15"H with LIG on the front pane.

Dude, those dimensions are awesome.

 

And those anthias's are beautiful, how much do they run? And would it be ok to have 3 in a 48x25x18H tank?

Crosshatch was transferred to one of the coral tanks after taking a chunk out my YWG. No trigger, so a few new additions:

White Balance all off, but cool shot anyway.

Kevin my brudda' date=' you got the wrasses in the tank!!!!! How's the tank comin along man?[/quote']

 

Very slow... Still running temporary lighting since i can't make up my mind. Thinking about building a 96 LED system with dim control. We'll see. Just added a skimmer yesterday since i have been running no filtration at all for about a month.

 

I picked up those 3 female Flames this weekend. Going to pick up 2 or 3 female Rhomboids this week. I've been doing some trades with my fish.

 

No longer have the anthias or the crosshatch. Current livestock is:

 

3 Female Flame Wrasse

3 Green Chromis

1 Yellow Tang

1 Pair of Blk & Wht Clowns

1 Pair of Harlequin Shrimp

1 Pair of Cleaner Shrimp

Dude' date=' why'd you get rid of the anthias? Those were dope as hell, Jess can't wait to get a trio of em in our tank when we upgrade.[/quote']

 

3 of the 7 dropped dead in about a week. I think it was due to them being poked incorrectly. I know who they came from, so my last comment has about 95% chance of being true. Unfortunately i found this out after they were in the tank.

 

They are very needy fish and need to be fed at least 3 times a day. That just was able to happen in my house so i made some trades.

 

Here is a couple of pics i took today:

The rock will have to be dry rock, live rock is illegal to take here in Hawaii.

They came from a breeder in Australia.

I bit the bullet on lighting...

 

Tuesday:

 

So all LEDs parts are in, so its time to get started. Details of the setup are as follows:

 

48 XR-E Q5 Royal Blues

48 XR-E Q5 Cool White

2 - 24" Heatsinks

4 - Mean Well ELN-60-48Ds (0-10v Dimmable)

 

All above items purchased from Bill @ www.reefledlights.com. Bill is a great guy and i would recommend him and his company to all.

 

Heatsinks:

One corner out of 8 bent from shipping. Its only the very corner fin. I may or may not try to bend it back.

The dollar bill is there to show you how much money i have left after buying all this crap...

 

LED_005.jpg

 

96 LEDs pre-tinned and Blues mounted on one fixture in under an hour. I wanted to submit this pic for the photo contest. It's reef related...right?

Test Fire Blue Good:

Test Fire White... not so good. Looks as if two stars are not firing. Solder points are good, not sure what the deal is.

Today:

 

Solder Joints were not good... 2 out of 280 solder points isn't that bad.
