That is gorgeous!

Thanks! The wifey wanted it dark so that’s what she got! The really sad part is the lighting in the living room isn't great so the detail will never be seen....

You guys are killing me with these! Ty are you being facetious? I know this is the easy part... all that really counts is what’s in the tank!

No jokes here, I think reefing is equal parts science and equal parts design. The design part of it was never my forte... Its more like a mad scientist went through my tank setup. So I can appreciate when tank builds of this caliber come together... I'm always envious of the results.

I’m just messing with ya brother! I would be more than happy to help the other red stand guys get hooked up with removable covers!

Playing around with wiring tonight. I got everything on the Apex! It’s all working as it should! I was ready to throw in the towel on the apex.... Their customer service is top notch! Emails and phone calls after business hours! 

Now if this cloudy water would go away I would be really happy! I’m pretty sure it’s just a new tank thing? I’ve never used live sand or dry rock until this tank. It must have something to do with it because I’ve never had it happen before....

That is not bad for cloudy water.  I didn't rinse my live sand on my current tank, and this is what it looked like for a few days.

The blue/white filter floss helped to clean it up.

I assume you rinsed your rock and sand??

I did not rinse the sand as it was “live” sand. I did rinse the rock. Everything settled and was clean and clear for a week or so. I woke up one morning and the water was cloudy. I’m running a 3 hour light cycle right now since I have nothing in the tank. Temp and salinity are where they should be.

Mine wasn’t quite this cloudy. I was clear after the first day or so.
