Thanks guys! I've gotta admit I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the tank being so short at only 13" tall... but man this tank is amazing! It's seriously the perfect size. Easy for water changes too! Kept track of how much water it held after rock and sand which was only 14 gallons.

 

Scott it should, got it from Hieu

I'll get more pictures up once the water clears up. I'm quite pleased with the rock work, should have lots of room for corals :)

Oh I know......I actually miss that tank......if I would have known the wife wanted one I would have kept it......

 

5 gallon water changes once a week works great. I did have to start dosing after a while though.

Well I plan to keep very little SPS so I think the 5 gallon water change will work wonderful! :) going to try and keep this a low maintenance tank :)

I like this much better. Looking good so far. Aquascaping is the best part of a new build, imo.

Added some of my first corals over the weekend. I added a six line wrasse, green frogspawn, orange octospawn, Xenia rock(hoping it grows on glass), toadstool, an orange mushroom and two green ones. Still gotta get super glue and attach the mushrooms :)bf6673a1621d81318d7a31935ae4c03e.jpgfba0e1262bff7874d017c49f543aeca3.jpg0de6ee00250069792980ac332c965512.jpg4bc64714452a5504a64bb423fd5b605a.jpg
