♡Spectra made me a gorgeous PURPLE stand for my new 60 gallon cube aquarium that will soon house my Seahorses!!  I am SO in love with this stand! Check it out ♡♡♡  More pics soon as we do more with the tank. :-)

This stand is beautyful I saw it in the shop today.  It will be a nice setup and showcase for those sea horses.

Its all good it gets natural light so it will be fine. You are just cycling it so it doesn't even really need a light.

 

I cycled my rock for my 100 in a brute can in the garage for 4 months. Lid was on it so no light at all......

 

How long does it need to cycle before the Horses get let loose ?

Can't wait to see this filled with seahorses!  Looks like they will have a few things to latch onto now...

Looks good you need a few more gorgonians in there though or some nice macro for them to hold on to.

But of course, this is just getting started.  As requested i took this picture with me out of the reflection, and instead did my artists rendition of You......didn't you notice :joking:

♡My seahorses love the pods and Mysis growing in the refugium. We catch and put them in the tank as treats! ♡

Hopefully the macro is growing for you.

Thank you! You got me addicted to macroalgae and I keep adding more. I think it's beautiful and it keeps the tank so healthy. Bret did the aquascaping for me. My arms aren't long enough to reach the bottom of this tank without swimming!

I don't love the look of yellow chains in a reef tank, but my seahorses adore them and I've gotten used to it.
