    New look for my tank

    Well, on boxing day I did a total teardown of my tank to clean it up. I changed the sandbed, fragged a lot of stuff and cleaned up the dead branches and whatnot. This is how the aquascaping looks as of now. This was taken the morning after ( yesterday morning) and lots of the corals are still slowly opening up. Today, they are even more open and getting back on track. It is basically more open now with a complete seperate section seperated by the sand for softies and those pesky spreading type corals.
    By the way, those huge powerheads you see are not permanent. They're there till I get my TS24 Tunze Stream kit.

    wow...the sand looks white, not the blueish color you see on some that use 20kk lights.

    Still looks great. You'll have to post pictures of both sides again once everything is settled.

    Nice, I thought you were building a new tank over the holidays? At the last MASO meeting you were talking about a cube type of tank. Plans change?

    Looks great as always Greg... great idea about splitting the tank in to zones as to coral types ... :thumb:

    I'll certainly be doing that in the 220 coming in 2004.
    It's not junk, it's un-assembled DIY!
