    I hope I can stay with the minimal scape... i’m Trying to frag down the stuff I have in my current tank and even get rid of a couple colonies so this tank has more open space than the last. I keep telling myself to leave open space. I think what will happen is the right side will go all the way to the side glass with open space in the middle and a smaller amount of rock on the left. My 5 got tank is pretty packed... this one is only 6” longer. I also have the hybrid inside and outside overflow which buys me a little more real estate.

    Looks good. I would consider lowering the panel LED light though as you might get better cheato growth that way and less algae growth outside the fuge section since the light wont spread as much if its lower.

    The wall one is just two more sections of the same octopus... got it from eBay for $4 and let the kids put it up.

    I may talk to Charlie to get a steel something for the room.

    BCACCCFE-4B51-4937-9FDD-3384D780F80B.jpeg Moved the equipment yesterday and the corals today. Still need to get most of the fish in the am but the old tank is so cloudy I can not catch the fish.

    Here are some fun coral pics...

    The equipment is still in need of a LOT of straightening but it all works. F65BED49-E704-4892-B3E0-0A4A0CFD3C4B.jpeg 171751DB-5B4F-4622-A829-4A554F83FFFC.jpeg

    Huge frag/colony of the coral in pic 2 from my last post to whoever wants it! Let me know. It’s a blue stag. “Frag” is easily 10”
