    I just finished adding the remainder of the live rock that I prepaid for from the sale at the LFS.
    Re-scaped a little bit and added a bunch of caves and ledges into the reef scape. I like it so far, we'll see how it looks when it starts filling in with corals and some fish.

    Bought 5 green chromis today, have them in QT tank right now.

    Also set up battery backup that I built (I call it Frankenstein) for the light, pump, skimmer and heater.

    Here's a couple ...
