Are those pieces of brake calipers in your hanging setup? How cool! Definitely a great use of [I assume] used brake cables!

The nori feeder is very cool. I am amazed at how much nori your fish are eating. I thought 1 sheet a day was a lot for my fish! :0)

They sure are! We own a bicycle shop, so naturally they came right to mind. We used all new components for the build, but definitely would use used if a person had it on hand.

Iím so in love with the new nori feeders, so easy to change without a hassle.

They are consuming a ton, and would eat more if I would add it. I will slowly take it back a few sheets a day once the aggression simmers down a bit. For now, itís the only thing encouraging the Blue hippo to come out of itís small area where it stays confined swimming in. (Which is thankfully along the front, lol). Having both clips full at all times seems to alleviate a bit of the powder Browns aggression. I can tell when one clip is empty, as it (powder brown) gets a lot more protective of the other.

The desi sailfin is super super fat. Sheís a beast and already so wide.

Awhile back a frag fell between the rocks, by the time I got to looking for it, it seemed to be gone. This was about April of last year. Just noticed yesterday itís about 5Ē tall now and peaking its tips out of a crevice not seen from the front! Exciting.

Of course! Danís Bike Shop in Ionia.

Invitation is still open should you ever get up this way. Would be nice to have an experienced friend to stop by and see our setup.

Open invitation to anyone who maybe near us in Michigan - Free SPS frags to whomever would like. Unmounted and freshly cut when youíre here, free for the taking.

Only thing we ask in return is that when youíre ready to frag, you pay it forward from that colony and give away free as well. Hopefully we can help out some fellow reefers getting started in SPS or the hobby.

Thank you!! Just mounted 14 New SPS frags yesterday. Canít wait to see it all fill in. Although I noticed 3 of them fell overnight, 2 of which Iím happy because I realized theyíd be better in different spots, they must have known I wanted to move them already

Thanks! Need to get some more fish in for sure. With such a strict QT process, itís hard with my work travel schedule. Hopefully in the coming months. I want to get some flasher wrasses in, possibly some anthias and a few others. Definitely have some research to do on both mentioned, Iím new to both kinds.

This is an intriguing thread for me on many levels. One, it's an interesting shaped tanked that's well integrated into the room. Two, it's developing into a gorgeous reef. Three, you're fellow Michiganders. And last but not least......a wife that is equally involved with the reef? A unicorn! �� Here I thought I was lucky in having a wife that tolerates my obsessions.

You two have a great looking reef and I look forward to learning much from your build as I prepare to get back into reefing after an 8 year absence. Thanks for sharing your build with us.
