    So I thought it was about time I showed a pic of my newly scaped reef. That would be after I thought the base had cracked and everything was removed from the system, all the silicone removed a extra base added and re-siliconed. Re-scaped and added the corals a week later again I kept my sump running so that I would not loose any of the good stuff..
