    Okay...now to the bad........ 😫 So as some of you already know, I made a remarkably stupid error when I moved all my coral over to the 80g. I had a 300w heater on the tank the entire time that I ASSUMED was working......and it wasn't at all. I moved my Profilux controller over from the 25g 3 days after I moved the coral and fish and the tank was at 70 degrees! The same as my house temp. UGH! Well, safe to say, every thing when downhill fast and mostly everything that you see in that pic of the 25g is now gone. Some Montis and Stylo survived, but thats about it. In hindsight, the water felt a little cold, but unfortunately I didn't pay much attention to it. A couple thousand dollars of coral in in the trash because of a faulty heater and no thermometer.....oh well, you live you learn. Since the display was looking so bad (half dead coral, plus rock algae uglies), I decided to make some new dosing containers and clean up the sump area. I am running Tropic Marin Balling on this tank with minimal to no water changes.

    The tank got wet in late November with the intentions of being cycled in the dark for at least 2 months. Added 10 Liters of Matrix as well as 2 Liters of Siporax I had, added MB7 and Ammonia, and let it ride.... Worked out because I was literally out of town for 3 weeks in December on Vacation. Late January, I decided it was time to start the pain staking task of moving all of these guys to the 80g Here it is the day I moved everything over:

    It really did. I was shocked when it was done as well!

    Next up was refinishing the stand. The black doesn't match any of the furniture in the house, so painting it is! I also refinished the door handles as well as replaced all the door hinges as they were rusted out. Before: After:

    Once I was done getting a general idea of how these puzzle pieces fit together, I moved to the tank and started to cement together. Here is what I landed on for the final product. All in all, I think I accomplished what I wanted to do: have enough rock work to mount a ton of SPS, but also have enough negative space in the tank Top down left side Top down right side Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
