    Kelan's 24g

    Well I guess it is time for a little upgrade. I received a 24g JBJ from Devon(Thanks!!!) and I figured it would be best to just move over everything from the 12g to this tank. Here is my progress:

    The stand was warped from water damage.


    I built a new top for it and painted it.


    Installed.


    Didn't have any other way to mix up 20g of saltwater....so I improvised lol


    Leak Test


    Rinsing the new sand


    Just a bit larger






    As of today...I just aquascaped that is why it is so cloudy


    I have a MP10wES on its way as well as an AquaIllumination Sol Led fixture....I can't wait!

    Looking good... I was a little stressed when I upgraded my tank a couple months ago but everything turned out great... I am sure yours will do the same.... Are you still going to do the 40b???

    I did not cycle this new tank...I just mixed new salt water and mixed it with the old water and transferred the live rock and livestock. According to many people I have talked to, this will not create another cycle, but I am doing some water tests as we speak. I will keep you updated.

    Devon: What are instructions?

    dawgwe1: Yes I will eventually get the 40B up and running, but I have a long road ahead of me for that tank.
