My Build - 1 Year Anniversary

I'm a little bit late posting this - but this is a year later. It's been an interesting experience and it's still hard to believe that my tank is continuing to evolve.

The first thing I should do, even before pics, is thank the members of RC; without them I'm not sure I would have made it this far. I would also like to thank my LFS Marinescape for all that they've been able to supply, and BRS for the few things they couldn't.

Pics!

Here's the tank about...

My Build - Update 11.12.25

A touch of cyano caused me to re-evaluate my aquascape. I moved one of the rocks to the sump to make a little more 'clear' room on the sand bed allowing for better flow. So far it hasn't returned. Here are the changes, plus some new coral (xenia, button polyps and a leather).

All corals are doing very well - there was a recent explosion in growth rate.
