    Here is my newest upgrade from a 12 gallon nano. To a 20 gallon long. Already a significant difference in space i cant wait. In a day or two i go to get some live rock a power head and a heater then play the wating game. I can already see my clowns eyeing the tank wanting to go in. [​IMG]

    Great job, some excellent aquascaping. I always find that so hard, especially in my cube :p

    thanks Jmck, im never happy with my aquascaping theres too many possibilities plus i still got 3 fairly large pieces to remove from my 12 gallon nano when its time to put everything in my 20 so i'll probably re-do everything lol

    Although its not in my new tank yet, its a new addition for my new tank when its ready. A torch coral. I put it in low to medium flow where it almost instantly opened. Taking that as a good sign. My lighting in my 12 gallon is pretty lame.(leds) I have better ones for my 20. Also leds but better quality and brighter.

    I cant totally tell what they are, but it looks a lot like an encrusting gorg to me.

    Its a pink hairlike thing. At night it dissapears completley. And just looks like pink like frosting on the rock when the lights come on, the hairs come out. Not sure if that helps. ill try to get a better picture. Is an encrusting gorg harmful?

    ok, crazy thing happened today. From my pics you can tell my tanks are side by side. Well, i leave the small front flap of the nano cube off to let some stuff escape, heat, gas etc. Anyways i get home feed my fish as usual. But i cant find my goby....then i look in my new tank and hes swimming laps in it. lol. Apparently he jumped from one tank to the next. Im not sure the odds of that but they gotta be slim. Thought id share. Anybody had anything like that ever happen
    ?

    New tank is looking good. Only been a little over a week and my Ammonia levels are around .25-.35 judging by the shade of green. Im curious if thats the highest spike i'll see or not. If there is a general number it will reach before declining. Im in no rush just curious. Also took out a piece of live rock from my 12 gallon nano and put into the new one. And, ripped off some of the old filter i replaced from the old and put it into the filter of my new one. Just tips i read that might help. Also isnt it rather odd that i am already seeing nitrate levels before nitrite levels?
