As some of you know, I have been working on a 110gallon tank for some months now and I recently found out I am going to move in a few months, so I will not be able to get that tank really going for while. In light of this, I decided to turn the 7 month old frag tank in my fish room into a small reef. Two weeks ago I added a sump and redid the flow. The next weekend I added some more appealing rock and moved the old rubble to the sump. This week I finished arranging things and added a pair of A. perculas that just came out of a 3 week ich quarintine. It's nothing too amazing, but it keeps me from going crazy when I look at my empty 110.

Here the tank is a few months ago:

Here is a site with some links to pictures I took of the newly forming reef yesterday:

Erik, I totally understand what you mean. I was going through coral and sps coral inparticular, withdrawl due to my 180g reactor mess. I had my 120g that had been reef but for the last 2 years was FOWLR. 5 weeks ago yesterday I did similar to you and got that baby set back up as a sps reef. Have some frags in there and now I feel almost like a reef reefkeeping person instead of the fish feeder.

Hey Erik,
Good for you! Even though it is a minor setback to getting the 110 going, you still have a tank to look at. Moving is a real pita. You don't want to rush your tank just to tear down everything.
I'm ready to plumb the 150. Just have to look at another hundred times or so....lol. Hard to put that hole saw to it and forget something.;) Any way, All good things come to those who wait.

I was looking back at some old pictures of my little tank and I thought the change was sort of fun to see, so I thought I'd update with some pictures:

These two were taken about 6 monts apart, the tank being about 8 months old now.




Sorry for the small images.

Looking really nice Erik. I am impressed. It almost seems a shame to upgrade it looks so nice ;)
