Some new pictures of the 155
« on: February 25, 2007, 10:31:20 AM »
Thought you all may like to see what the tank is looking like a week after starting things up.  We've been moving corals over slow but sure, and have 3 of the 5 chromis in the tank (the other two were too stressed and didn't make it).  Microbubbles are better, have the spraybar turned down a fair amount, but the seaswirls are running at 100%  :)  It's been fun watching the chromis play in the jets.   :D

That's exciting! It's got color now.  We really enjoyed seeing your 75 and it was nice so we can imagine what the big one will look like when it's all said and done.

Looking good!

It looks great! I know we saw it on Friday but the lights were off. Looks better when we can see everything  :D

Thanks guys!  Since Colleen can't seem to keep her hands out of the tank when she's home...there's a lot more life in the big tank after only a week of running than I had originally figured we'd have, but with this good rock, we are cycled and going great!   :D

Julia, we forgot to get you the screen for your tank.  If you still want some, let us know, I know right where it is, and we have plenty!

Glad to hear that!  Are they getting along OK, or hanging out separately?

I think you had it right the first time John.   :P  I've gotta get the timers on the lights and get the actinic's working...lights on for 15+ hours a day is killing us with diatoms!  Guess that will be easier after the new ballast for the actinic's shows up tonight.   ;D  I also will be able to get the 1/2 inch seaswirl working (replaced) tonight as well.  That will be good...more current movement.

Well...figured it was time for a new picture, and this one came out so good, I had to share:



Notice that there's a clam in there now!  Actually, there's 2, the other one is further to the left.   :)

Thanks Dashia!  The clams really add a nice bit of color, we are really happy with them.  Thanks to Ed for picking them up, and Shark Reef for the awesome deal!  Thanks also for the great colonies of SPS at a great deal.  One of the two we got from them is right dead center in front of the  the white pipe that supplies our spray bar.  It's going to be pretty when it colors up, I think it's got a hint of baby blue on it...as that fills in, it's going to look amazing!
