    Thank you AQUAVALLEY - New Live Rock for my new system

    Hi

    after a long 4 years brake, i finally got the OK from wife to start a small
    system ... (cost me a week in Cayman Island but... you know)

    Couple of weeks ago, i started buying right and left stuff for my new small 65G tank (36 x 18 x 24)... personnaly, it's just the right size for a small system.

    I made the stand myself (with wood) so at least i save there...

    when i got to LR... i got that deal from Aquavalley on Fijii Totoka XL..

    woah... i was really really impressed

    my old system was with Vanuatu (direct uncured unopened) and it was real great rocks but now...

    let me tell you, that rock is 3 steps over my old rocks!

    I though they deserve a high five for that one... Thank you very much.

    Regarding my other stuff...well... Jeff from J&L is always a pleasure to deal with.

    sad part is... need to wait 3 more weeks for curing... sight.... :b1:

    PICTURES .... and more

    first, my (in making) Sump... need Miracle Mud, some green algae or mangrooves or more rocks... i will see


    Skimmer after only 6 hours of work... good investment in my opinion


    Back of Tank


    From Side


    Front view


    Well i am not fan of Bonzai architecture (i know some like it and i respect it)
    I am more for 'let's do lot of hidden spot' for fishes

    with my past experience i learned that Tangs are real shy specimens and since i will probably get some, i tried to create 2 huge caves (right and left)

    also, lot of arches so fishes can swim around...

    I made lot of great spot for corals or anything else i will add

    rocks is curing so there is some weird colors and white spot appearing... wish all will be back to normal soon

    All rocks seem solid (even it doesn't look that way)

    I will add one more powerhead next week...(alreadyin the mail)

    water is pretty cleared and I do not have huge peak (nh3) since i got lot of lviing sands who probably helped a lot

    I am thinking getting the base Tangs (again) as Hyppo, Yellow and maybe one more exotic (i had Clown Tang in the past but was really aggressive)...
    what do you suggest?

    Also FireAngel, and probably Butterflyfish (colors are so nice)

    I was thinking of Gold Flake Angel but when store gave me the price i cough a bit and say I'll wait (about 350-425$)

    comments appreciated
    (but not about my aquascaping)...hehehe
