Excited to get started on a new tank! Just arrived home late last night from two weeks away. I wanted to give a HUGE shout-out to Jeff at Cuttlefish Corals who has (for almost the last two weeks) been so kind as to order, hold on to, and then deliver my new tank!

The light is just a cheap light from ebay that I was planning on using in the sump. On wednesday I hope to go and pick up my new ReeFi light from Daniel!

I have also been meaning to give a shout- out as well about this Gonipora also from Cuttlefish Corals (hands down one of the most beautiful corals I have ever seen):

While I was away I was able  to visit one of the shops in north LA and pick up this guy:

Red Sea reefers are awesome tanks! I love mine. Nice corals too!

Thank you!! I credit Jeff to cultivating my desire to get this tank. Every item he mentioned was rightfully echoed in the reviews. I have never seen such a well designed sump and plumbing. I can also use my overkill skimmer and 3000l/hr pump that were sitting out on my garage, so works out very nicely!

Thank you!! I can't wait to get this thing cycling. My smaller tank is quickly running out of real estate. Will try to start a tank thread once I get more than a few hours into a pre-made setup.

Yes, way nicer than that stuffy old lamp and end table ;-)

haha... Appreciate the kind words! I was lamenting the loss of the second lamp, but agreed that this will give the room a new life! Plus lately I have been spending every free minute with the tank upstairs, so this will allow me to glean some pleasure with being downstairs again. :)

And totally random-- but in explaining to my parents earlier this evening that I intend on getting a pair of nice clownfish for the tank, my mom insisted that I name one of them "Bozo". Although I was a bit hesitant at first, seems like a Bozo and Binky would be fitting for the tank. :) Otherwise, Krusty would be a very portland-appropriate clown name.

Can't wait to see what you do with this tank. The tank looks perfect in that spot.

Are you the one that works at Cuttlefish?

That goni is gorgeous! The scoly, too. :wub:  I like how the tank looks like it belongs in the room; not too many people accomplish that well. 

This is a different Robyn.
