Cool, sounds way more intense than my tank (sheesh and I thought I went all out ). What other livestock do you have plans for(fish and corals)?

Hard question Leslie...

I got the actual tank December 25th of last year.

In other words...a looong looong time...but mostly due to money factors...aka, i'm on a teenage budget. Lol.

Sure Darryle...I just haven't figured out how to get a good shot of that one yet. I've tried, believe me.

Nate, agreed. I'll be taking them out asap. Do you see any problem with leaving them in the sump for awhile?
