Have you replaced the bottom plate yet, or just applied that mass of silicone inside?

Funny you mention that! I have received a new bottom plate from @Concept but havenít replaced it yet. My wife and I leave for Cabo in 2 weeks and didnít want to have any issues while we are away. The silicone managed to seal fairly well (looks terrible) for applying and putting water back within a couple hours. Iím left with a small drip 💧 which catches in a 5g pail. I cannot wait to get it replaced though!

Wow, that provides a cool perspective of your tank - a very nice view! Makes me appreciate the wider tank as far as aquascaping. I have to squish everything together.

Thanks dash! I know the feeling from my 75g bowfront to my 24Ē wide 150g. Definitely like the aqua scape which was designed to allow the ďtang gangĒ to swim laps around and through the caverns.

R.I.P. Hawaiian 🌺 feather duster. ďSpotĒ (CBB) made a meal of you. Was on an original piece of LR in my 75g.

so Spot (CBB) has settled in very nicely and within 3 days appeared as if he had been in the tank forever. My Powder Blue chased him around for the first day but eventually got bored. He has been eating aptasia and my feather duster lol. Spot also eats frozen mysis which is fed every other day

Talking New Frags!

Checked out the Edmonton Frag Fest this morning. Picked up a couple mice pieces from fellow canreefer (Scythanith) and they are already happy on the rack. Awesome frag selection and took the time to show me colonies etc. Couple photos of the frags which will be mounted sometime this week.
