    Yes, i know it is a bit of a mess right now, but i just did some major cleaning and the dust hasn't settled yet.

    i wanted to know if you guys have any input on pics 3 and 4. i rescued them from a friends tank. (he can keep corals) i think 4 is some kind of brain, i have no idea on 3.

    Thanks guys.

    great looking tank! Your corals look very healthy. pic 3 looks like a type of acan and 4 looks like a brain... however, I'm not the best coral IDer out there. . .

    Very nice! Looks much bigger than a 75. Pic 3 is either an acan or a blasto (thinking the later). The 4th pic is a lobophyllia. Both corals like low flow and lower light. They also like to eat. Chopped mysis with the pumps off should keep them nice an pump. You can use a (new) turkey baster or medicince dripper to target feed them.

    I was running PC's over my 55g. When i set up this one i knew i was going LED, and a friend was selling his old units. They are not the best but they do what i need for now.

    I have two 20k evolution 150's (1 watt led's). They are a little too blue for me but they are keeping everything alive. i would like to build my own some time soon.... thinking RapidLED. The radions that i want are still way out of my price range.
