    Looks good Matty! Just be careful with the sponge you got in your sump. That will hold nitrates. Just MO

    Thanks. I have to start cleaning it more. Plus I put some fiber on top of the drip tray to catch some stuff while dropping down from my overflow. The tanks has been a PITA. How much did you pay for 20L?

    I'm just glad I can keep something alive. He was about to cut the zoa rock into two and throw the polyps away and them try and sell the zoa when i told him I'll buy it for $10 and do the same but keep the polyps.

    Well, found a guy selling a air water ice typoon 3 75gpd rodi unit for $125. So, grabbed that and got 9 different frags of zoa from another guy and checked out a new lfs yesterday. Basically the lfs had a pet store but saw every1 skipping thru the dog cat bird stuff and going straight to the back where the salt water stuff was at so he closed for a week and go rid of all the pet stuff and doubled the saltwater stuff. So, now he's got 2 big $10 frag tanks, 3 big $20 frag tanks and a sps with clam tank where it's separated by $10 & $20. All in all a very good day. Hopefully the zoas will open up when I get home for pictures.

    I actually don't have any fish right now so first up are some true perc black or if money is right some black onyxs. A lfs is going to try and start breeding some black onyx so people can actually have them. They are going to sell them for $20 instead of $80-100 a pair. I've just been getting coral right now trying to make the 90g look full and not like a pile of rocks. But I got some more over this weekend so pics are to come.
