    Oh and a few pics of my frag tank. This has been the easiest tank to maintain, no sump, no sand, and it sits on the floor.

    Nice Tim, Did Gen build your display, it looks like one of his tanks (he rolls Sherman style).

    I feel a really nice and clean tank coming on....


    How about a little gear/method behind the madness info.

    I finished the chemical cycle, did two 80% water changes, then started adding live stock. My First addition was a Tomini Tang, and a cleaner shrimp. Followed by a fire fish, and a cardinal. Then two weeks later a pair of clowns and a gbta. So far everything has been doing great. I have been feeding a combo of Rod's/formula 2. I'm still having the algea bloom, but the Tomini is taking care of it. I'm going to give it another three weeks, then start transfering over the coral. Here are some pics

    lol, its Art's old tank. The only bow in the tank is caused by my poor camera skills.

    You need some snails to help with the algae, I would just keep the 1 small tang. Nice clean look!

    I think you should get a DJ power strip to help with the power cords Tim. : )
