Time to be reborn.

Starting a new tank at a new apartment.

This time it's going to be clean and smart.

Whoo!! 

Nice to see the resurrection of another aquariast, like a phoenix being reborn. We never stop.

Welcome back from another phoenix who has risen from the ashes and taken on a much smaller tank.  Looking forward to seeing what someone does with a tank so similar to mine.  I have the same lighting, but a bit bigger cube with sump.  How deep is the tank?

You didnot mention "zoas"????

I've lost them and abandoned the rest. Looking for fresh frags with minimal rock of: 

-Candy Apple Reds

-Sakura/Fuzzballs

-A particular morph of Green Bay packers I dubbed Marleys.

-Also looking for some GSP in a mat with minimal rock to put on the bottom

Looking good!  Don't worry, that six line will be out bossing the tank around in no time... it's what they do best ?

MISSING NO MORE!

It's nice to have you back man, it's been a little while hasn't it. Glad you are making use of the new picture upload feature and making a build thread, it's pretty cool isn't it, not having to use Photobucket anymore. And this new tank is looking to be a pretty nice setup my friend, interesting rock choice, leaves lots of swimming room but still has some room for corals. Hit me up if you want to snag some zoas back at some point. If you'r going to the meet I can get some fragged up for you here soon.

Change in livestock.

added a red with yellow polyps photosynthetic gorgonian.

added a Krakatoa morph Zoa I'm calling a Squatchatoa for now.

changed out the flame angel for a fat head anthias. It nipped my corals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Check out my favorite pink crab sitting on a World Wide Corals Skittles Cypastrea

Love those anthias - seems like a good swap. Hope the six line doesn't decide to pick on it.  Squatchatoa eh?  I need to get into the zoa business so I can start coming up with some cool names!  Looking good!

Nice McCosker's! I've been thinking about getting one, but I'm holding off for now. Upcoming summer trips have me emptying out QT tanks, so the tank sitter has it easy. I like several of the flasher wrasses, so maybe whichever I find a good specimen of once I'm ready to fill up the QT again.

I was also noticing that McCoskers... very nice!  I really like the look of them but haven't wanted to risk it without any kind of top on the tank.  That is a particularly striking one.

Beautiful setup, especially for such a simple beginning to it. I probably would have over stocked it out the gate then have to weed things out later. Like you stated in the beginning of the project, smart start. Good job.

Looking great!  Did you ever get more stometella?  I actually saw mine again the other day but didn't try and catch it as I thought you had it covered. It is a pretty bland one anyway...

      Hey everybody,
      So I caught the bug after an almost 20-year hiatus from reef keeping. After deciding a while ago to set up a little reef tank and filling it with water it leaked all over my floor. The next day I went out determined to fix the problem and accidentally bought a Red Sea Max Nano. Needless to say, it's awesome. My only problem I have now is a lack of patience. Right now I'm happy with a couple of shrimp, 2 clowns, a torch, zoa colony, hammer and a polyp I can't remember the name of. I am pretty excited to find this community here in Portland and looking forward to Sunday's meet-up. 
      Cheers!

      Anyone looking for a 40 gallon breeder set up? I have a drilled 40B with black line stand, ASM mini -G protein slimmer, a utility pump, and a couple sunsun power heads. All you would need equipment wise is a light, sump (I used a 20 gal tank), plumbing (the bulkheads look good still) and heater.
      About the tank: set it up about early (around March) 2016 but due to fighting my ex for custody of my son I was distracted and didn’t take care of it so I had a tank crash and then by October 2016 I took it down and it has sat in my garage since. Back is painted light blue but I’m sure you can get that off. It was set up for a frag tank.
      Asking 200 obo.

      I caught my largest flower nem starting to show signs of breeding.. I turned off the pumps and suctioned some of it into the mouths of the other nems I have. Possibly resulting in a cross breed from Indo and Caribbean.
