Taking Down the 175 gallon (picture intensive)

I decided to wage a final and hopefully winning battle against majanoes so I took my 175 down. I also want to remove scratches.

Here is a picture of it being worked on. I am sanding out the scratches.

I moved most of my fish to the new 120 gallon I purchased. It is alot brighter in real life than in the picture. Notice that there are lots of tangs and not all of them are in the picture. They are all doing great.

I moved my corals to another holding tank. Here are some top down view. I can't see through the side of the coral holding tank very well. The corals are also in a 120 gallon tank.

Here is the very bright orange cap with lots of polyps. I included a standard orange cap frag I had at the bottom of the picture for reference. Notice the difference between the two orange.

Neon green digi. I think this is brighter than most green digis.

Blue echinata turned a little brown after being in the temp tank for about three weeks.

Nice. I miss my sarmentosa.

Your polished aquarium looks great. I will look you up when I start that task.

Sure. It is not as hard as you would think. It just takes some elbow grease. I didn't get every scratch out but most of it.

Whenever you want a frag of the saramentosa, let me know. I can bring one to PROP if you want. I like tabling acros.

Sure, whenever you are ready to work on your tank. And if it is only on the outside, you can do it whenever. You don't have to take your tank down. It is not as hard as you would think. It just takes some elbow grease. I didn't get every scratch out but most of it.
