Tank at Five Months

Thought I would share a few shots of the tank at five months.

Here it is from front, back and the open end:













Here are a few shots of my anemones. Started with one big one that I got through this board from marfuerte. It split the day I put it in the tank. After a couple of days of scary marauding, both halves seem to be quite happy. The bigger half is almost too big. As luck would have it, my ocellaris pair scorn both anemones. They have more interest in the MagFloat.











I feel like it is getting hard to find places to put new corals. I have little luck with epoxy or superglue, so I mainly have to find holes or flat spots on the rock in order to get corals to stay put. Short of taking rocks out and drilling holes in them, which I am loathe to do, I would welcome suggestions.

Love the tank and the pictures are great.. Nice clean glass too.. The Anemone looks great.. You should sell the small guy as its only going to get bigger..

I always buy baseball size rocks and glue my frags to that. I can then place were I want and they stay put. And if later I need to move it then its easy to do so..

I think I may need to start doing that with the rocks.

Frankly, I would sell either one, if I could get them off the rock. They both chose to attach to the single biggest rock in the tank. Go figure.

Try Aquamend from HD, and put a dab of superglue gel on the plug (under the Aquamend) and on top of the Aquamend to hold it to the rock. Works every time.

You have LOADS of room to mount corals!

My question is, how do you clean that glass with the rockwork up against it?

The rock is only touching the overflow. There are two spots where the rock is so close to the glass that I can't get the scraper in. I just leave those two spots be. The photos just give the illusion of the rock touching the glass.
