    I’m going to add hopefully about 20 to the 180 I just set up in the office.

    I already have a pair established in there so maybe if I added some smaller clowns, she wont murder them all

    Just get the smallest ones you can and you should be fine.

    If you can catch him I can’t imagine he’s bigger than the tangs I have in the 450.

    again back to the "I glued all my rocks together" problem. in hindsight this has proven to be a less than ideal decision haha

    I followed a link for aptasia removal laser from melevesreef. That link went away from amazon. It’s a cheapo Chinese unit. I ended up wiring up a permanent power supply to it bypassing the batteries.

    I used this for blasting aptasia which worked at eliminating a specific aptasia but only caused them to proliferate. Bergia worked far better at dealing with the aptasia issue.

    I’m sure the laser would work at cooking other nuisance critters. I feel a little guilty cooking other anemones but the laser is a good way to annoy other undesirables if nothing else. Maybe force them to give up their grip and let go long enough to relocate?

    It will be hard to provide a good link to the laser since they’re constantly being taken down. I can look for mine if you want to borrow it.

    I think this is the first in wall bowfront that I have seen and it turned out really nice. Do you have any more pics of the whole wall with both the room and tank lights on?

    Thank you very much! I spent many months scouring the web for photos to get ideas, I personally don't like the look of "hoods" on tanks, yet with "in-walls" I feel like one loses perception and depth.

    I will have to see if I have any zoomed out room photos, we currently have the side panels off as I am trying to redo them. Alas I am waiting on management to make a decision about what "look" she wants...
    I can grab you some pics to help your quest

    Woke up Saturday to a call from a buddy with a "fishmergency" as his tank was leaking!!!
    He patched it the seam with coral glue/putty until we could get what we could into buckets.

    WHY DONT FISH UNDERSTAND WE ARE TRYING TO HELP AND GET IN THE F@#^% CUP/NET!!! :mad::mad::mad:

    The OG 36g tank was a craigslist find so not too shocked they eventually burst (Also what a perfect time to upgrade haha)

    Tanks are in short supply right now with people spending more time inside so he finally found a tank he liked, and I helped him build his first stand.

    This is what I walked into... (notice glob of coral putty on middle right hand seam)
    [​IMG]

    Here is his new 65g tank and stand! (he wants to finish it with tile or rock)
    Hopefully he makes a build thread here soon...
