    I really like the light stand. Very easy to swing out of the way plus it adds to the "Techness" of the room. Any possibilities of getting a head on shot of the tank?

    Sure man, when I get home...
    The light stand is a 'C-Stand' like they use on movie sets for lights. I used to be a 'Grip' (lighting guy). ;) :)

    Looks great Matt.

    Soft corals use chemical excretion so you want to keep SPS and LPS upstream/current from the softies. Keep SPS and LPS corals out of each others nematocyst, or stinging cell range. Some LPS have sweepers that can extend 12". Running carbon can remove toxicity emitted by SPS and Softies.

    Thanks Craig ... I have some carbon around here somewhere, I'll bust it out.

    Naut the TetraTec isn't for everyone (kinda noisy) but I like it. The current seems really natural with the corals waving around.

    Thanks all,

    those the "tips" am looking for...

    Keep softies down current, more frequent carbon changes in filter and maybe increase amt at water changes.

    till I can get tank upgrade done to greatly increase water volumn and space.
