    I had a bunch of rock in there that wasn't real ocean live rock. Long story short I was trying to save money and the look of it drove me nuts, so when I found a good deal on actual live rock I jumped on it and did a major change.

    Looks really cool! I really like the idea of a split tank.

    I'm running the return pump, no issues.
    The skimmer sucks and I've got a new one on order.

    LOL this is turning into my tank build! :)
    I went with www.reefshops.com
    I bought their 6 bulb t5 set up.
    I've also got one of their cone skimmers on order, I'll be doing a review on it once I get it.

    I know, not a lot of conversation so I guess we gotta do what we can to keep it going. :)

    Anyway, those are really low priced and it will be interesting to see how the light works

    The light is working awesome. The lights it came with were alright but you'll want to eventually upgrade. I use KZ bulbs, 1 fiji purple, 1 20k, 2 15k, 2 10k.
    If it had some updated electronics it would be a killer set up. It has two light switches but only one cord so you can't set it up so only certain lights turn on with a timer. Moon lights would be a cool addition too.

    I'm optimistic about the skimmer, it has good reviews. This is the one that's on order.
