    Emerald's IM Fusion 20 LPS dominated tank!

    Love this tank! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. What components are you looking for? I may have some laying around? I'm not ready for coral quite yet but I will be soon. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Alright folks been a couple days since I've updated. Progress has slowed as the wife releases funds for the fun stuff. After a field trip with my manager today we ended up at Cuttle Fish and Coral. So much I wanted to buy while in there but have to get the tank wet before I can buy anything like that lol Did end up with this guy here Thanks again Cuddle Fish and Coral for the awesome service and good prices. You will be taking a lot of my money soon. Until next time.. Nathan [emoji1308] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    That torch is amazing!! Love watching this build grow. I can't wait till I can get torches like that. Great looking tank! Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks Emerald. I'm trying. I'm fairly certain I'm gonna glue the 3 back rocks together and run like this for a few. But will probably play around just a bit more. Still lots of learning and mistakes to be had. I'm also attempting to learn patience. Very difficult for my generation. I think tomorrow I'm going to order a jebao rw4 (based on a Matty recommendation), mj1200, live sand, and a cobalt neotherm. That should get the cycle started. Anyone have any better suggestions on the equipment? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Hey all, Another small update. Picked up another piece of rock from Matty. Thank you sir amazing tank! Took the rock home and placed it in the tank. Think I found a scape I can live with. I like it quite a bit now trying to picture corals and where they'd fit and how they'd look. If you have any tips or advice please let me know. Thanks Nathan [emoji111]????️ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Dry Rock

    Matty. I can probably head out that way tomorrow after I get off work if your going to be around. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Alright folks just a small update tonight. Was forced to help the wife setup garage sale stuff. Anyways picked up some starter dry rock from g2theram today. Got it home and played for a few. Also got the tank to its close to resting home once the rest of my man cave set up. This is kinda what I came up with. I also want to add another medium island rock or formation on the front right to give it some depth contrast. Any advice on what you see? Probably won't have many updates other than placing some orders the next couple days. Stay tuned. It's just getting good. Nathan ✌ Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    I may be new here but I will definitely be going to this. Looks like a nice way to meet some of you all and see more things to blow my mind.
  14. I got the majority of it off. The corners are extremely difficult. And it's left a hue around the top edge that I can't seem to get off. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Hey again. So I put in some decent work. Not too bad of a day. First thing I did was I continued to work on the rim. Which I was able to successfully get off. It was a little nerve racking but I managed. The came the tedious task of getting all the silicone off the edges. Ugh 4 hours later. Vinegar and goof off later I got it about as good as I can. There is a little hue towards the top that just won't leave. But I actually think it turned out pretty well and makes the tank look completely different and a lot more elegant. Lol. I also went on a search for new hinges to replace the rusted ones. Home Depot didn't have anything that I could see that would fit. So I figured it'd be easy to replace hinges later and that my wife is gonna be harassing me to move it tomorrow evening. On the plus I found a decent replacement for the stag horn cabinet handles. Anyways that's where I left it for tonight. Got the tank completely clean, cleared out chamber 2 false floor, rim removed, and some general cleaning on the stand. Not a bad day. Will put stand back to get tomorrow then start to dream the aqua scape. My wife said she'd pitch in on that one. Happy wife happy life. Thanks for checking it out.
