The Turtle is in a 15 gallon tank now, moved him from the five. He is still fun to watch, I guess he will be getting larger and larger tanks as he grows.

Alright, been some time since I posted anything on my blog, Today I picked up a 56 gallon tank to house my clown fish, I want to do a nice tank with a few small fish and shrimp, Not a reef for awhile, will get there later on. I also want to set it up the old fashion way, cheaply, no drilling, no sump and only HOB filter with a bio wheel. So I guess it will be a low tech tank with items everyone tell everyone not to use. I will post some pictures soon

Monday Morning and the tank is clearing up from not rinsing it very well, I guess it's no real big rush to get the clowns moved into it. I think it going to be a nice size tank to house a few small but cook fish

I will be updated this as I go, ordered the skimmer last night from Life Reef, external 36 inch, still not sure on the lighting , I think metal halide or T5;s. just not very convinced on LED.

I changed my mind on the lighting, I ordered from Reef Breeders a Proton 48 LED and then 2 kessels160we with controller to supplement, also ordered a 1/4 chiller, maxspect gyre 150 for water movement and a GFO reactor .
