This is the culmination of months of planning, months of waiting, and then several weeks of installation.   Tale of the Tank:   360 gallon custom glass tank from Custom Aquariums.   •8 feet long, 3

I decided to take the opportunity to actually utilize my phone's water resistant capabilities and took some underwater shots. Cell phone technology has certainly come a long way.... It's crazy. You ca

I have to give a special shout out to Jeff at CNC. He helped me get this tank ordered and delivered as well as negotiated some price savings from the manufacturer. He also helped me get some rock for

So sorry, glad it wasn't worse...  let me know if i can help with APEX alarms or anything.. 
Thanks man. That would assume of course that I have an apex [emoji2957]. I don't even have a pH monitor or controller, not even on the CaRx. Maybe someday I'll leap into modernity.... Someday.

Haha, yeah I saw that. I'd definitely be down for a chunk of that someday.

Decided to risk it all for a fish!

Jeff had some pre QT PBTs in stock. I was going back and forth on whether I wanted it. Then good ole@Bicyclebill strolls in and starts thinking the same thing. Long story short, we both bought one.

It's been eating nori like crazy every day so that's a good sign. I contemplated QT, but figured I'd roll the dice. Into the sump it went! Now hear me out!

A stable, low stress environment is certainly not a bad thing when trying to acclimate a sensitive fish. Also, and I could be completely wrong for even assuming it, but I have a massive UV sterilizer on the sump that has to be reducing total pathogens in the sump before they ever reach the display. Obviously that's mostly wishful thinking, but the UV sterilizer will certainly alleviate potential ich outbreaks. A couple of my fish have broken out before so I know it's in there regardless.

Anyway, here's to hoping for the best!

After years, I've finally put a cover on the reef tank. I don't think I used a cover on either of the previous two tanks. After a few casualties, including a pair of clowns I've had for about 8 years, I decided it's irresponsible to just keep not using a cover.

I actually like them. I can set tools, towels, and whatnot on them which is actually pretty dang convenient. However, I know that switching out power heads is going to be more of a pain that it already is and feeding is less convenient.

At any rate, here's how they turned out.

Also, here's the latest update on the Gigas. It's a freaking beast!
