    I have to admit.. A little 20g ex-sump laying around on these forums is a lot of temptation for me. Obviously, I gave in and I really couldn't be happier with the results. Well, maybe but I'm content for now :)

    Before:
    Treylane's exiled sump

    After:
    My little box of water

    I've thought about ditching the skimmer for an even cleaner and empty tank look but I think it will stay for a while. Less to worry about ATM and cleaner water is never a bad thing..

    She's photogenic but mean as hell. Doesn't just bite but goes for the kill and 'rip your flesh off' chomps and thrashes.

    And another pic for kicks. This picture stuff is pretty fun. Maybe I should upgrade to that Mkii like every other new 'professional photographer' lol

    So putting this little box together was fun. Can't wait to set up the big one

    GIANTS! Hey... When was the last time you remember a winning game with all the Giant's runs coming off of HR's????? Takes you back a few years, doesn't it!?

    I like the "no substrate" look. The first tank I saw devoid of substrate was Bryans. What a concept......keeps the bristle worms at a minimum. (I still hate those helpful little buggers). This pink chalice looks like either "Frog in the blender" chalice or maybe Pink Poodle chalice. Those names come to my mind. I have a similar small chalice that has very long tentacles! Good work, Con!

    Awesome looking tank! Looks like an ELOS! And that recovering chalice almost looks like a Miami Hurricane chalice! One of my favorites!

    That's because it is :D

    Jess - Didn't win anything at the swap :(

    Thanks all for the comments

    I guess I should update that little rimless tank as well, huh? It now has 3 PAR38's and about 15 anemones in it...Oh, and a ton of frags that I don't have space for anywhere else lol. A note on PAR38's...I'm really not too happy with them other than the look. They seem REALLY weak with any decent amount of coverage (60* barely gets you a 12" circle). I have zoos that are reaching for light...and yumas but they can deal with it. I could get 6 PAR38's and use 40* optics...but at ~$600...I think not :)

    Pics to come sometime
