    Lots of wood for that size of tank! Is it a 2'x2'?

    Wow - that is really beautiful and you only started on 6/15?? You already have water and frags in there - how is that possible? You don't have to cycle frag tanks like you do for a typical tank for fish / coral? What are the dimensions / total gallons? (Your lizard display is also amazing - do you have to keep it heated?)

    Geneva- I did a 25% water change on my other display tank and used that same water for this frag tank which is only about 17 gallons or so. I also transferred some live rock and I also used dry sand.

    Thank you. :) oooh yeaa Day geckos are tight!
     
  11. Yep. Gotta love animals in glass cages. I had quite a few snakes too. Couldn't move them, and the apartment won't allow them, so they all went to good homes.

    haha true! It was such a time consuming project. i suppose the next cage should be half the time since i already have the plan laid out.
