As promised, here's some pics of my new tank... it's only been set up for 2 weeks, so it's not much yet. I am pretty happy about the cyano that's started already (it's a good sign during cycling).

Frogfish are cool. Sure you know how and how much they eat ;)
Not really... I have a lot of research to do. I'm told that you feed them by wiggling silversides in front of them... but I'll read about it first. The tank won't be ready for it for awhile anyway. I'd love to feed him some damsels though... :p j/k

Thats why we have woman. Wise abbreviated rationale, that men will spend pages debating. Nice looking tank. Looking forward to updates. Also loved the changes to WWM. Sorry never commented on the thread, but ended up getting lost that night in WWM.:)

Hehehe... I'm not sure this is a "woman thing"... but yeah, I always look for cyano growth when cycling a new tank. IMO/rationale, it means that much of the dead/dying material on the live rock has degraded to the point of supplying enough organics for the bacteria and cyano to start blooming. When the cyano fades, imo, that's a sign that the live rock is done "dying off." And I personally think that the greater the variety of cyano you have growing in those initial weeks, is a reflection of the quality/diversity of your liverock. But that's just my opinion... mostly "speculation."

Awesome that you have a tank that's cycling at least, Sara! BTW: How abouts some pics of the "engine room", etc ;)

Are you going to leave those power heads in the tank, or are you going to get some other power-heads?
BTW: Do you get the "SunSun" range of power-heads in the US? I bought one with ceramic shaft, JUST TO TEST - and I was EXTREMELY amazed by the "performance" I got from it. AWESOME value for money, I would say!

Nice Sara, I've also just started a new tank.

What size is your tank? And where's the pic of the sump? ;)
