    Looks good. I'm still waiting for stuff to ship for my 10g. Looks like your winning the race lol. Maybe set the fuge light right on the lid of the 110 instead of using legs? That might cut some of the light down that's going into your tank.

    Just an update, I added two pieces of LR from a friends tank. The rocks has been in that tank for over a year. So it should do well for seeding this tank. I also added a koralia k1 for my flow. Cycle has start w/ amonia at .25. So soon I will be able to see this tank take shape.
    Happy thanksgiving to everyone!

    Looking great Pecco! I just set up a crude FOWLR 10gallon for a last minute addition that couldn't go in my 55 (personality disorder between a CBS and Royal Gramma)

    Your's is looking much better than mine! LOL

    Well the ammonia is almost gone from the test I just did. I am also seeing green algae starting to appear on the rock. I also noticed a small mini serpent star in the rock, so it seems he came from the LR pieces I added. I am kinda surprised he is surviving the ammonia spike. Hope it can hold on. Also another comment of question: the tank seems to be holding strong at 74-75 degrees. Will this be ok in your opinion to have sps coral in?

    oh had another question also. I am currently using a coralife power center for my timer, however it appears to have stopped working. Can anyone recommend a good Power center/timer I could buy.
