    75 g ocea tank w/ no centerbrace
    2 tunze turbelles with controlllers
    30l refugium sump with a proclear aquatics skimmer
    the return is an ehiem pump
    stand and canopy are made from louisiana cypress
    lighting :
    so far we've only got four blue vho's on the tank but we're going to do between 7-10 total vhos with a heavy blue ratio.

    We're 90% of the way there, just waiting for the no3's and po4's to go down and then we can add sand and fishys and corals!!! yeppie

    Heres whats planned so far
    5 pink skunk clowns
    5-7 fire fish
    a bunch of gobies
    a group of flash ur asses (flasher wrasses)
    an assesor
    maybe a genicanthus angel
    Whatever we can find that we havent had or seen before :)

    Corals will be predominatly lps at first and then we'll add sps in to fill in the blanks and watch it all grow.

    Put your sand in. Your paramiters are comeing down but if your sand doesnt cycle with the rest of it, it will cycle again. You want all of the bactetia to grow together.(unless its all live sand. Then nevermind)
    BTW that is beautifull wood. I wish it was available here.

    Oh and holden, I'm pretty sure it's a bare bottom tank.

    Holden- We're waiting for everything to zero out, trust me we know all about the cycle and how it works. Also, sand absorbs phosphates and nitrates so the last thing you want to do during a cycle is add sand.
    It won't cycle again unless i greatly increase the waste levels in the tank, not the amount of dead stuff. The sand we add will most probably live (from ricks not the bag stuff).

    David would love to keep it barebottom but i am just against it all around for my tanks :)

    BLASPHEMY!!! i cant stand bare bottom tanks. if we had it my way we only have enough to cover the bottom glass and small portions would be siphoned out and thown away. of course what is taken out would be replenished with new sand, kinda like a water change with sand! lol

    this cabinetry was custom built by ocea per my request. it is the only cypress furniture made by them,(atleast it was at the time) it took over 6 months to come in and cost $1800. thank you for the comments about it. :P
