Just as good a day as any to give your new tank its fist birthday. Right now between 1600 and 1800 all the lights are on, I have set them each for 6 hours with a two hour start delay for each halide. As you can see I have not cut off the threaded stock from the lights because the lights are not centered front to back over the tank, this may need fixed if I decide the front of tank is too dark. The rails stop at the crown molding in the garage which would give me a couple of inches.
As there is not a lot to see, I did not edit these at all. I think I transferred 8 fish and hand full of corals. The rock has lost almost all of its coraline with the exception of 3 patches. However, it is pest and xenia free and ready for a new leaf. fist order of business is going to let the tank adjust and settle for two weeks, meanwhile I am going to get some fish in quarantine.
I am going to wait to add any more clean up crew until I see some algae as the snails, conchs, and cucumber have nothing to eat at the moment.
Next week I will test and post some parameters, as of right now everything is at new salt mix levels.
