Very nice Don - I love the shape of this tank. Can you list out what equipment and stock you have in there?

Looking good Don, nice and healthy. Looks like the corraline is cranking up hard and heavy.

Thanks Mike, your right the corraline has growing very fast. I wish I could get the corals grow. At first they grew fast, now I'm not sure there growing at all. The clam in front has grow 3/4" in the last two months.

Don,
That is a gorgeous looking tank. I was curious what your tank looked like. I like everything about it. I hope you keep this thread going with a up to date with new skimmer, and etc..

Thanks
Ed

Thanks Ed,
I'll try to keep it going I forgot this month. Its not as pretty an Iap tank but being all diy I've got less $ into it than most have in their skimmer alone.

Don- minus costs of experimentation to get things right, what would you say your total cost of the setup is w/o livestock. Just curious as to how much savings you could get from total DIY.
