Ok, so, I got my new skimmer ordered, my 2 400w halides installed, and am finally becoming happy with my new setup. I need some more liverock, but, it is starting to come together. Pics will be coming up later tonight. Just ordered an octo extreme 200 which should be here later this week, woohoo! Ready to see that thing suck some scum out of my tank. As an homage to the old 37, here's a few pics to show what I upgraded from...


That's a a cramped sump there...

haha, so I got wrapped up playing the new Mass Effect (It's one of those games that sucks you in) and forgot to take pics before the lights went out. I promise I'll post some pics tomorrow

ok, so, I'm going to do this in a different kind of way than everyone else. I'm going to keep everyone on the edge of their seat for a few days and just post a pair of pics every day for a few days. The following is your treat for day one :D

ok, new skimmer will be here tomorrow (Wahoo!!!!) In anticipation, I'm gonna post a bunch of pics. MY Melanurus wouldn't sit still long enough for a good pic. My Yellowstreak is a camerahog though, he follows the camera wherever I go. Potters is also all over the place. Tomorrow will be an equipment rundown as well as some coral shots.

Ok, well, sorry for all the suspense guys, I'll post my full tank shot tonight. Don't be upset though, it may be a little underwhelming, haha. Here's the equipment and livestock rundown till I can get home to take pictures.

Lights - 2x 400W 10k Metal Halides

Filtration - Octo Extreme 250, Carbon in a Phosban reactor, 2 Koralia 3 pumps (Simplistic on the filtration)

Fish - Yellowstreak Fairy Wrasse, Melanurus Wrasse, Potters Angelfish, Pair of Doni's black clowns, Yellow Tang

Inverts - Emerald crabs, Tigertail Cucumber, 1 hitchhiker hermit crab (I don't have the heart to pull him out), boat loads of Cerith and NAssarius snails, Commensal Basket star (Lives in one of my leathers), serpent star, Blue Porcelain Crab, Pistol Shrimp, Crocea Clam, Rose Bubble tip anemone, Green Bubble Tip Anemone

Coral - All kinds, really.... Large Green Trach, Sunset montipora, Psammacora, orange Digitata, Pavona, rics, yumas, entirely too many green shrooms, superman shrooms, galaxea, I'm gonna stop cuz this list could go on and on. I'll just get some really cool coral pics tonight. Is that fair?

Anyways, Derrick, espionage is weak, haha. I hope my little ploy has everyone excited :D

Did some rearranging right before taking the pics, so hopefully it looks alright. I'll get some equipment pics tomorrow.
