I have an idea for a screen top too.
Had a minor disaster, upon moving my large snail into the 72's 40 gallon sump (temporarily) & it died and killed off my 5 yr old yellowtail damsel (my oldest fish) my Bicolor Angelfish & the micro brittle starfish eating Valentini Puffer.
This happened while moving so I was not at the new place when this happened and didn't find out till I was on my way home with a large Yellow Tang and some coral when I did. So in went the skimmer (into a basket to separate it from the rest of the tank/sump) along with Purigen & Chaeto (in another basket).
Yesterday I got the stand top painted (hand rubbed bronze) color.
Bought my salt, finalized the sump plumbing, built a light hanger & painted it & finall,y added a tiny 3/4 inche misbar clownfish so far the older clown & new one are hanging around each other without fighting (didn't think there'd be much if any due to the huge size difference) ..... time to change the older clownfish's name from Marlin to Marlene....lol. I think I'll name the new one Charlie . Pics to follow (though there's a diatom bloom going on right now....grrrrr)
Today get the stand top installed, assemble tank & start filling it.
so sorry to hear about the losses - glad to see you posting again and looking forward to seeing the new tank! congrats on all of the progress you've made and on the good deal!
Baby clown..... name Charlie.
Top of stand just set on to see what it'll look like.
Old clown & new..... Marline (formerly Marlin) & Charlie.
I'm happy to finally be finishing this upgrade.
I think once I make the screen top I'll be adding a trio of anthias.
Looks great. Sorry about the troubles!
Silly clowns using the hairy mushrooms as a substitute nem.
Very this very short video of my clowns in their shrooms.
that is so cute!!
4 of 6 fish.... the 2 clowns, Cardinal & Thing 2 (engineer goby).
I quite agree.
Finally getting it filled woohooo.
For my baffle-less sump I enclosed my return pump.
