Well here is my first official post (yes my dad finally got off his butt and set me up an account ) Well me and my dad finally got the 29g acrylic tank up in my room. We got the tank and stand free from a club member. We built a custom overflow and cleaned up the scratches (but there are still a lot more but they are hard to see with water in the tank). We also modded a scwd (we'll post a thread with that later) from Phong (Elite) but it still needs some testing so we decided to use a working scwd from Matt (Dyngoe). We are powering the scwd with Quiet One 2200 which is our return pump. So far we aren't using any power heads since most of them are all to big for a 30" long tank. We will be using a RedSea Prizm HOB skimmer he had on his 46g but instead of hanging it on the back of the tank (which it wouldn't have fit anyway) we have it hanging on the 10g AG tank that we made into a sump. It has 1 high section for the skimmer which spills into a middle section where we want to put some chaeto then the water passes through a bubble trap into the return section. So far it works awesome BUT the water level is very sensitive since it's a really shallow sump and we had to leave it less than half full in case the pump cuts off. We need to make some lids for the overflow and maybe the sump to try and keep evaporation down because without an ATO I'll have to manually top off once to twice a day. We may scrap the 10g tank and build an acrylic tank inside the stand. Here are some pics. We are getting the T5 parts we need Monday so we'll try and get some more shots then. Here is a link to the moonlight we made http://www.bareefers.org/discussion/index.php?topic=4856.0 Here's a quick shot before we filled it up.

We got all the live rock from Gorm and it's been sitting in a glass 20g for months now. They are big pieces but I like it. My dad (LeviT) wants to change some out for smaller pieces but I kinda like these.

We are using a filter sock to clear out dust and stuff from the sand.
