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.

Lookin good Kelan, I am glad you didn't have any problems with the move, that sure boosts the spirit. You keepin an eye on the ammonia and nitrite/nitrate situation.

How do the fish like their new source of flow? I see those darn star polyps are still up front...
So far the fish LOVE the new swimming area of the tank and the new flow. I will eventually move that rock out of the tank but I will wait a few months.
