Lifes been taking interesting turns, but none so much as using an aquarium for both physical and mental therapy. Since this tank was set up I've learned so much more than I could have at any school. Its that learning thats kept me sharp and not let me deteriorate any more than I have...

Lighting is an Edge LED strip.
Don't understand the pumps but my husband says Penguin biowheel alot...

Hopefully my successes and failures will help others. If you have suggestions, I'm always appreciative.
Mistakes (at the beginning, EVERYTHING was a mistake!):
-So I started using a tank made for freshwater. In retrospect, I should have paid more for a drilled marine rank. Nonetheless, my...
Ever since I got my new light, I will be keep track of my corals progression these next few weeks. I am excited and can't wait to see the results since moving to LEDs (I know they are the ones I am going to stick with but getting decent light setup is still XD)
Current light setup:
I started this blog in the wrong forum! So, I'm moving it here where it belongs.
To recap, I have a 29 gallon Oceanic (not the new Coralife) Biocube with a bunch of modifications, and more planned in the future. Below is a list of the upgrades/mods I've done.
