    Hi all -

    I am curious to hear what you have done to your tank that you are proud of?


    I liked my DIY rocks. I thought they turned out nice. How about you?

    Let's hear it!

    :)

    made enough room with my LR so my eel had more space and everything still got enough light and current. still waiting for my protein skimmer to show up so I can install hopefully it fits wish me luck.

    I would say the moves in under 6 months.

    Oct the 75 and 46 moved 10 miles.
    Nov the 75 and 46 moved 20 miles again only a month later.
    March the 75 and 46 combined into a 180 and moved yet again.
    Next move is planned for June.

    Have to love divorce.
    (best part is I only lost one cleaner shrimp so far)
    BTY I chose plumbing as I have gotten to much practice doing it :)

    I have no idea what I am proud of! I guess I am proud of my livestock in the way they ajusted and acclimated to the four glass walls surrounding them confining them in a small closed system! They are truly amazing and deserve alot of credit in their ability to survive away from their particular reef biotope in their natural surroundings!

    I am proud of my ability to get my tank back to normal. I have little patience and the highest nitrates I ever saw really tested my patience. But I did it. My tank is looking better and better everyday. I am sure there may be more problems to occur in the future but this is something none of us can control.

    I have only had 2 fish die on me, my scooter blenny(probably starved)
    and my first clown. Besides this everything has done really well. We should all be proud of our success in reefing!!

    I just replumbed my system and doubled the amount of turnover through my filtration (got soaked in the process). My Torch about doubled in size.
    I also just got a bunch of new rock and made a tiered effect in my 1/4 corner, it's pretty sweet!
    I love this stuff.

    The best thoughts of my tank are seeing the tank slowly mature after careful nurturing. Watching corals spread, fish grow bigger and discovering new things growing, it sounds sort-of lame but a happy tank is a healthy tank. Simply maintaining the health and seeing the life forms flourish and prosper brings me the most pride. :smug2:

    I learned a lot through trial and error but my live stock has appeared to be maintaning there health.I am most proud of seeing this world I created with my hands and watching a small world form and live stock make it there home.
