Ive been mad busy with work and all that nonsense but I thought I should keep my peeps up to date on my build. So, here is a list of what equip i have so far; Grotech Tec III NG dosing pump, mp40's, vertex GFO reactor, Apex aquacontroller, custom made sump sump 5ft long x 16 winde x 15 tall with a 3 foot refugium zone inside it 2 filter socks, Refflo Dart/ Snapper hybrid external pump, 3 Lumen max reflectors run by 3 Galaxy ballasts and using 3 250W 20,000k Radium Halides (I dont believe in LED
It's their first spawn! I'm so excited! I've had this pair for over 3 yrs since they were juveniles now my babies are having babies! Yay!!! Sorry if the pic is blurry but I had to snap a quick pic with the phone camera. Funny thing is she laid the eggs on the corner of the glass. Just wanted to share! Hmm I would love to raise some of these clowns... Maybe
There's a small chance that upon arriving at this site, you've realized it's actually about a subject you are unfamiliar with, because you thought you were looking for Christmas decorations or something. This site is actually about coral reefs. Or rather it's about growing and letting them thrive in a tank environment.
Admittedly not as many people do this as you'd think, considering how gorgeous reefs are (picture below). It's difficult for anyone to grow and maintain a home

That's what I'm thinking of calling my aquarium. First my pistol shrimp disappears for over a year before turning up (after 2 tank moves). So I decided he needed a goby friend. I bought one at the local fish store 2 weeks ago, haven't seen him since. Till last night!
Now he just needs to find the shimp on the other side of the tank. I'll try to get a photo of him, but he's still pretty shy.
Going to replace my GEN X PCX40. I'm excited - I expect to see less power draw and more flow. So, the return hole in my sump is currently sized for a 1" return and now I need to enlarge it for a 2" return. I know there are many reeflo fans out there - what size return / bulkhead do you REALLY use? Any advice on how best to widen the hole? A 2.5" (or close) drill bit seems cost prohibitive.
