  1. FarmerTy's 215 gallon - No Water Changes SPS Tank

    Thanks Jim! If you can't tell, I'm a little obsessed with the tank right now since I finally got a chance to polish it up, clean up the sandbed, and start gluing some frags/colonies on the rock. That was 8 months overdue. [emoji23]

    Early morning photodump. Have a great weekend everyone. Get on those tank projects! [emoji1]

    Yes sir. Only spot I had open that was large enough so I plunked it down. Then I started liking it there so I left it.

    Both have great, strong colors that you don't need actinics right up on them too see.

    That's a Cornbred Blue Tort. Here's my CR Electric Miyagi.
  6. Donated! Just makes sense, especially since I just made money from the swap anyways! So everyone who bought a frag from me... You donated too! Give yourself a pat on the back! [emoji4]
  7. Winter Frag Swap Frags

    Got me a high end pack from Justin! And no, I wasn't at the swap... I just placed an order through Gig'em Coral Instacart and it showed up at my door. Starting top and going clockwise: Wet Thumbs Blue Flame RR Angry birds Jason Fox Firedragon Sexy Corals Orange Passion

    Heck yeah! Looking good already! I see you grabbed one of those cool green with bright blue polyp caps too! It is the nicest one I've ever had in the tank.

    I forgot to post the frag rack of goodies that still need to be mounted!
  10. FarmerTy's 215 gallon - No Water Changes SPS Tank

    Been awhile since I posted a Full tank shot. Its getting there slowly. I've culled some colonies the last couple months, lost some too during November when my tank was in a funk, and now have open space to start gluing my new stuff to the rocks. For now, the frags that graduated from the frag tank are sitting on the frag rack to be glued somewhere. I took my first stab at gluing some colonies/frags but its always a process. The right rock is close to where I want it except I may swap some corals out and I still need to fill in the bottom right with more frags/colonies. The left rock structure is a hot mess but I'll keep working on it. I also cleaned up the sandbed and reclaimed my beach. Its nice to have that negative space back... It makes the tank look like a tank again. I also got the pvc foamboard in and cut it and applied it as a backdrop. I'm decently happy with the results but may look at another alternative as the seam in the middle does bug me at times. I still need something that is removable when needed so painting is not an option. At least its nice to look at the tank now and not see plumbing and storage boxes behind the tank. [emoji1] The tank cabinets and front are finished from a construction standpoint. I still need to complete it by sanding and painting it as well as sealing it with silicone against the glass so guests don't drop crud into my sump below. We'll get some nice bar stools down the line but for now, these two chairs I stole from the breakfast table will do. All in all, I'm very happy with the progress the tank is making and even more happy that my corals are back to being happy and growing/thriving/coloring back up again. Its also bittersweet as I know once the corals are all glued up, I will have nothing to do with the display anymore and the only option is just to sit back and watch it grow. At least there's still the equipment/sump/frag tank to play with. [emoji106] Happy reefing everyone and thanks for following along.

    I gave Gig'em my can of it Raj. Maybe hit him up.
  12. Pearlberry

    FarmerTy Fearlberry not good enough for you? [emoji23] At one point, I had 4 versions of the "pearlberry" from 4 different sellers/vendors. I kept the one I thought looked closest to the classic. You have one of the versions I thought was the real deal but obviously it wasn't, though pretty in its own right.
