Woo whoo!  We have water!  Well... at least I think that's water :)  Looks like the movers managed to get it in there in one piece anyway :peace:

Absolutely awesome tank!  Brian has an awesome setup and everything worked (for the most part) as it should.  Except for maybe watching his cat decide whether to jump or not, lol!

Looking good!  I see a few of the anthias survived anyway

my phos has stopped jumping around which is nice. Need to work on tearing down my frag tank and plumbing it into the system.

Your rock is coloring up nicely. I started my hexagon in december and my rock is in the green stage but hasn't really darkened up much148e27c484e190ba3498bd2060a426de.jpg

well. i wouldnt say nicely.. its different shades of green. I put some uncured live rock in there which caused phos to spike and therefore algae.

Had like 6 weeks of testing and dosing lanthium chloride to keep things in check.

Your tank looks cool as well!! what kind of fish in there?.
