Here are a few vids of my progress over the course of the last 18 months.  I started with a 36 gallon bowfront and recently upgraded to a 90 gallon.  

The old 36 gallon:


The 90 early on:

After LR addition:



Most recent after upgrading the cheap Mars Aqua to a pair of rail mounted AI Hydra 26 HD lights and the addition of a Pajama Cardinalfish:

Pretty cool set up you have there, Jester. Are you planning on adding anything else to it? Great videos btw. 


Posted By: Jesterrace
Date Posted: July 21 2018 at 11:02am
Actually, I am.  I had to remove the Yellow Tang because it got aggressive towards the coral beauty (nipped off the tip of it's lower fin and was hitting it with it's scalpel).  I have a Pyramid Butterflyfish in QT and will post a video of it when it's in.   In the meantime I did add a backing to my aquarium:

Well, the Pyramid didn't make it and I can't source another one, so I went with a One Spot Foxface instead.  I added it along with a Blue Star Leopard Wrasse:

Seems to be working well.  Chaeto is definitely growing and will need to be trimmed before too long.  Anyways, got in on some cheap coral frags at my LFS' Black Friday Sale:

I'm jealous of the leopard wrasse...way cool fish!


Posted By: Jesterrace
Date Posted: December 11 2018 at 10:43am
It really is.  As mentioned though, the Leopard Wrasse is all about literally picking the right fish.  Half of the shipment that my LFS got in didn't make it Cry   That's why it's best to wait until they do a bulk order and then buy one that is alive and doing well a few weeks later.  

Anyways, I had a request for some updates.  So here they are.

For those at wits end with green hair algae and hair algae in general, I recently tried Flucanozole out.  Here is what my tank looked like a few weeks before I started treatment.

Here is what it looks like after a single dose and waiting for a month with no water changes and then following it with a 20 gallon water change and waiting for a week
