Is enroute and I will follow up with pictures tonight once I get home and get stuff acclimated.

Also anyone know how to bring down the heat on an Aquapod. My heat got up to 82 yesterday. :confused: Is that a bad temperature?

Thanks

:eek1: Holy Cow!! Talk about some nice stuff. The second part of rock is so amazing. There is so much stuff on it don't know how to place it. Well I think maybe too much rock but who cares. :p I can move some of the smaller pieces to chamber two as I slowly replace the bio-balls. Some of the hitch-hikers on the rock we found a huge decorator crab. We also found a baby squid or octopus and probably others that we didn't see at first. Then the extras.. WOW! Tons of stuff. Pictures to follow shortly as the bags acclimate to the tank. :)

Its a 29gal Biocube. But more likely its 25gal up front and 4 gal in the chambers when its all said and done. I like it. I wanted more of a rocky type formation. The anemone is moving around like crazy trying to find his resting place. The Hermits are having a field day eating and the Decorator crab is playing king of the hill and hasnt moved from his perch up top on the rock.

I will probably move some stuff around still as stuff gets settled in. One of the cukes is trying to escape up the back wall into the third chamber better check it in the morning.

id say 58lbs. Give or take a pound or two. 29lbs of Live sand. Woke up this morning and the anemone is up top corner next to the power head. Will have to try and move stuff around so he can settle on the bottom.

Well the cleanupcrew is going to town. I found one of my peppermint shrimp chilling out on the top of the chamber two grate yesterday morning he was alive and kicking still but looked a little peeved off about the situation. The anemone is acting funky (do they not like flow at all??) he has wedges himself insida little cave. The wife is not liking that. I did some major reworking of the rock. I will have to post some pictures later tonight as I am currently at work.

So I should I wait a week before feeding the tank and its inhabitants? The ammonia did take a spike and went back up to 1.0 will have to do a water change when I get home tonight and the Nitrates went up to .5 but Nitrites was at 0 still.
