Finally finished my 37g reef tank.COST 125$,5days,sunday service for my language and one nice dive seeing my friends get mad cause I only spent 125$ unlike their 600$ tank that looks the same PRICELESS! Well here it is all the live rock in the tank my pops gave to me from his reef tank to speed up the cycle it's got a home made 20g long sump with about 50lbs of live rock(special thanks to the keys) built all the bracing and over flow wall out of old 1/4in glass from a window I had laying in my shop.its got a 600 gph pump for the sump and a 500 gph current fan.no skimmer right know my pops said wait a couple months then throw one on.





If anything I said sounds like a disaster or looks like a disaster please let me know.very new to the sw seen.

You took live rock out of the wild? No fire worms or mantis shrimp or other nasties, I hope.....anyway, good luck w/ it. B)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

No lie there Eddie. I couldnt believe how much the tiniest pieces of corral went for at the trade show we went to. That was insane.

But its a really nice looking tank. Looking forward to lots of updates as it progresses. :)
