Kennyboy quit trying to hijack threads and go take a pic of your "125". Ben great tank can't wait to see more pics sorry for the small hijack on my part but this guy just won't stop maybe one of the mods could give him a time out then maybe he would have time to take a pic I felt bad for him for a minute since everyone was jumping on him but since he is taking is rambling and BAD advice everywhere he goes I could care less if he gets flamed to death.

Ben, I got the PM but I won't be able to talk much business until I get back from Europe (trying to save some cash for once). Sorry for not replying back though. Kennyboy, your lame.

Patty- Thanks for the compliment, and I understand!

Mdisalvo- no problem man.

Corals are just starting to open up this morning, looks like I'll take a picture today, but keep in mind how much better it has looked in the past...

Ask for and you shall receive...















The corals are still a little gloomy, but you get the idea!

Let me know what you think.

Thanks guys, any questions?

Ben

Hows the MH working? I'm thinking about bringing a 10 gallon with me to school.

The MH is great, I love the shimmer effect and it will really help out my corals. You might want to think about a 150 for your 10 gallon.

Nah, I don't really want to get into the more light demanding corals, I just want it to look better than just pc lights, plus saying you have mh lights is just cooler.

Hey at least my tang is still alive and has a great appetite. The yellow one on the other hand is dead...The fact is I haven't killed a single fish since the start of my tank. However someone here has openly admitted to killing a yellow tang...and somehow they get away with that? You guys are all whacko.

Wow kenny, less than 3 months and ALL your fish are STILL alive?

What an accomplishment!!

Please don't post in MY thread anymore.

Yes, they are Green Star Polyps. Also have some Organ Pipe in there as well.

How about you do the same for me? 5.5 gallons is awfully small for a clown fish...

Look at the size of that fish in the full tank shots. It is really small. I agree, a full size clown in a 5.5 is not advised, but I am confident that Ben knows this.


You on the other hand, already have fish too large for your system. Fish that swim all day. Your bioload is already WAY too high, and on a tank with no protein skimmer.

But I know, that 125 will be set up any day now.

nice tank ben...i personally like it better with the small amount of rocks in there...to me, that makes it look larger and more realistic...only problem is, it give you less room to put all your corals!

Thanks guys. I have a full size clownfish in my 75 gallon, but obviously didn't want to put it in my 5.5. This clown is less than .5", and Serdar, the owner of Phishy Business, said it was more that perfect for him.

Kenny, STAY OUT OF MY THREAD.

Have yet to figure out how to transfer to college, but I think I'm going to start it up with some local frags in Blacksburg.

If things looks better today, I'll post some more pics!

Cya guys,

Ben
