Update before vacation

Update before vacation

The water level was too low. The return was splashing and sucking air. I had to put some elbows made with pvc cement and a chop saw.

They will be made ssame size and painted black.

I moved the tan into another room as more people can check it out and it makes just enough noise to be bothersome just.

Here are some pictures. No sand I'm going to put the rock in first then sand around the rocks.

Last picture all this has to go in this tank. My sister broke up w/ her bf and he left the tank so I inherited two nems firefish maroon clown lawnmower blenny and a damsel. Along with some liverock and snails. I'm going to trade the maroon lawnmower and damsel. I have already 2 black ocelairs one sixline wrasse my 33 shallow rimless will be left behind as I have a small car and wont fit only enough room for livestock lights refugim stuff.

I leave my tank for up to 2 and half weeks without any maintence and my sps grow and are doing great. As you can see theres algae and the lawnmower has probably got it all clean by now.
