I have a qustion about Powerhead positioning? I have a rio 800 powerhead and I have it up by the filters pointing across the tank is this a good position?


You can see it here. I know it pretty much depends on where I put my rock and things but until them? Any input?

well, are there any spots in your aquarium where there isn't a nice, strong current? If so, it needs moving. If not, leave it be.

Well got my live rock! Had many travelers with it! A crab and tons on starfish!

Pics!!



Still pretty bare but like I said taking it super slow! It's like a complete tank build lol. Hope you enjoy the pics! This rock has been in his tank for years and has lots of good algae and will be ready for frags soon! I have to let mollie pick out a few fish to put in the tank so she stays interested. I told her the coral was me and she can pick out the cleaning crew and fish :)


And these pics just for fun! Baxter! My friend Alex's puppy! He got a hair cut!




Me and my love!

Nina they are fun to watch! The way they slide around the glass lol!

Yeah Ben! I feel like that's the only way to go with this tank so I'm not out a ton on cash! I mean, it could still happen but this will lesson my chances of it. I'm thinking that if my levels are right by next Friday two wittle fishes will be added and if they seem to make it without any shock let the coral fun begin. I do believe on of the first frags I will have to buy will be an anemone lol. Moll is dead set on her clownfish. I believe i have her convinced on the maroons though. :) maybe well get lucky and get a breeding pair? Lol. I have been doing lots of research on a cleaning crew and holy smokes there are a lot of different routes.

Says "Nano reef! Pics!" for me, is that the heading you're after?

If not I can change it, just let me know what you'd like it to be.
