Just wanted to touch base, and say I'm not dead.

Tanks been up and running since end of July. No stock yet. Been busy on courses. Just keeping the cycle stable by dosing ammonia.

Hoping to get something in it next weekend.

Well I've got a small CUC and a young clown pair in there. Parameters are holding.

Finished all the cabling and the majority of the Apex programming.

Got my second Kessil red necked up until I finish building a canopy.

Started the canopy today. Just the basic frame, placement, and driver test so far.

Just wanted 2 bulbs to supplement the Kessils.

What kind of Clowns did you get? Would love to see a pic :)

Just some tiny occellaris. I was looking for true percs but they couldn't be located locally. Almost splurged on a pair of naked clowns but then I reminded myself that regardless of the tank fish are usually just a coral or plant background to me.

I'll see if I can get some photos tomorrow. Have more wood to cut and paint plus some more electrical work tonight.

Got all the wiring cut and fitted.
Got the two Kessils mounted.

Just have to decide whether the canopy is hanging, floating, or connected to the tank.

Well I have the canopy built and hung for about the last two weeks. Need to take it down at some point and paint it.

I've removed a large peice of rock from the front left. Moved a peice from the right over to the left and removed the shelf peice altogether.

Have to excuse the blue pic. It's nighttime

I found a local guy shutting down and I planned on picking up 2 small RBTA and a pistol shrimp from him, when I went to pick them up the nems had their feet buried down in a 5 lbs peice of Fiji. I ended up taking the shrimp, rock both nems, and the SPS frags on the rock for 50. Couldn't pass up the deal.

I'll see if I can get some proper pics up soon.
