    love the tank. The overflow is working out for you? Hows the maintenance? do you clean it often?

    The 90 is unoccupied except for a clownfish and half a dozen aptaisia. It's almost like a science project. I don't run the halides in it anymore, don't dose, and there's so much bubble algae in it, I'm amazed the LR doesn't float to the top! All corals are in the nano.

    Thanks, 2in10. Unfortunately I've lost the elegance. It was a mystery. Everything else is doing very well. :(

    Hey Jay Reef. The overflow is flawless. I hate to say, but I've not been maintaining the tank except for one 5-gallon water change a month or so ago. I'm still working up at the nuke, 100 miles away, and my weekends are strictly for unwinding and resting. I don't run a skimmer, don't dose, and haven't really tested except for calcium a few weeks ago; which was spot on at 440.

    Too bad on the elegance, it had a great color, they are so hard to figure out

    I didn't keep records, but the tank was about $95, and I'd imagine about $300 or so for everything else, not including the return pump.
