Sadly no. We have 2 little lfs and a PetSmart. Ordering from on line would be just to expensive for this reefer on a budget. I'm cool with a non-drilled tank. Been doing without successfully thus far :)

The above dimensions for the 56g upgrade tank is wrong....those are for the stand. The dimensions for the tank are 30" W x 18" D x 24" H. A little taller then I want but maybe I'll go with a 2-3" SB :) I'm getting excited about this build. A friend of mine will be trading me my 4x24w T5HO's for a Cannon 200w dimmable LED pendant :) I'll be able to test it out before the trade if finalized, sweet or what!?!

I'm still not settled on filtration type though. Seeing as the tank will be located in my very small living room, it will have to be very quiet. I've grown comfortable with the HOB refugium yet don't like the room it takes up on the back of the tank. Puts a dent in how and where I can place my power heads. Decisions decisions...... :)

Wow talk about slacking on the updates! Shame on me :( my tank turned 2yrs old last week!!

All is well with lil 26. Added a new Reef Octopus BH-1000.


Scooter the Dragonet is doing great. Eats like a pig and has grown a bunch. All corals are growing as well except for my zoas, what can ya do?

I went to the LFS today to pick up some Rods Complete and saw this lil guy still floating in the bag from a new order that had just arrived. I personally took it as fate. The Yellowtail Fang Blenny has always been a favorite of mine. Had one once but he got spoked and into the Maxi Mini he went. Hopefully it won't happy again.
Say hello to, Prince-lol.

Yeah that blenny is really cool. How long has your candycane been in there? Since the begining? it looks like it needs a trim or two.

I've actually had the CC for 3yrs. First bought it for my 8g with only 2 heads, back in 09
We've got a Frag Swap coming up in April with a *how to frag shop* and the CC is gonna be one of those fragged :) Ill be giving the frags away!!
Thank you for the compliment :) I really do love this little tank.

Update: lil Blenny is gone to fish heaven. New skimmer is working wonderfully! Binford4000 made me an awesome pre-skimmer box which really added to its efficiency! All in all tanks doing great! :)

Tank is doing well. Got a few new corals from the first ever U.P. of Michigan swap!! Which just so happened to be my first swap attended :)
Scooter the Dragonet is now 6 months old!! She's doing great and loves her very own feeding station. It's a small jelly jar, which allows me to keep food available to her all day without the worry of the food getting blown all over the tank. It warms my heart just watching her in there pecking away at her leisure, knowing she's getting plenty of the good stuff to eat. Reef Nutrition Artic Pods, Nutramar Ova, Reef Frenzy, yum yum!!
I'm also very pleased with the performance of the Reef Octopus BH-1000. Big big difference in my waters quality! Especially since I'm feeding so much high protein frozen foods. I haven't feed my tank flakes of any kind in a couple of months now :)
That's it for now :)

New Corals
Acan

Favia

Montipora Spogodes


And last but not least, Scooter in her jelly jar!

Update iPhone 4s pics! Taken today.
My tank is doing well. Still very happy with my skimmer.
Started Kalkwasser in my ATO. Don't need much but it is very nice not having to manual dose 2part....so far ;)

Picked up a wee lil Emerald Crab today :) Set him right on top of some bubble algae so I'm sitting her waiting with high expectations lol. Tank is doing well. Why I didn't use Kalkwasser in my ATO before now is beyond me. I'm very pleased with the results.
8tsp of SeaChem Kalkwasser in 4 1/2g of RO/DI has given me a consistent ALK reading of 9.0 for the last 3 days now. Ca = 440, PH = 8.2 and Mag = 1400 Can't get more balanced then that :) Evaporation is about 1 1/2g a week.
My tank is doing great!
