Almost forgot, my early Christmas Present:



An Octopus NW200 with a mesh mod and drilled the venturi. Gravity fed from the second sump/barrel. My water has never looked cleaner.

Now I feel complete:

A Super Feeder tied to my neptune. Now I can feed as many times a day as I want or manually from any computer. Thanks Jimflies, this is by far the best feeder on the market. www.super-feed.com.



My ever expanding control center:



Does anyone, except my wife, think it is a problem when the filter ends up twice the size as the aquarium and take two pictures to fit it all in? Have I gone too far?

Slapshot,

I like the fish feeder. That's so cool. Definitely going to get one.

The neat thing about our fish room is they are mission control to us.

Your design looks very well organized.

This has been a great site for all of us to learn each others ideas.

Good Job - and Happy Holidays.

Thanks guys I knew that if I asked on here I would get a real valid opinion. Dent yours puts mine to shame......hmmm maybe I should redo mine? The feeder really is impressive. At the bottom of the hopper it has grinding wheels and the floor of the hopper shakes when it feeds so the food does not clog up. The hopper holds two cups and you can extend that to 4 or 6 if I wanted to. Add to that that it is so adjustable. I am feeding 1/2 teaspoon 3 times a day. Then I just feed some frozen at night. It will be great for my Bartletts. I mixed up a bunch of different dried sinking pellets and flake with some dried cyclopeeze. More importantly when I am out of town I can now pretty much control everything on my tank.

I think the feeder will be my Christmas present to myself this year. I love my AC3 but you end up with a extension cord nightmare. I think this is another task I am going to take on this break. I was thinking of using some conduit to a set of outlets on the other side of the room to get rid of the extension cords.

Nice setup by the way I wish I had that much room. Its great to see how every configures their space.

Thanks H but don't think you need all that to make it work. I like gadgets and doing things myself. I have also accumulated this stuff over many years. It makes life easier but you can get away with a lot less. I also have this annoying habit of wanting the best for my charges.

A new growth shot. Things are growing nicely. Another year and it should be what I was looking for. I had to frag a good part of by beloved Purple Acro on the top as it was shading everything. It was 12 inches around.
My Caps are crazy I have cut them all down to 1/2 the size they were. They are growing at 1/4 inch a week!
My favorite Brain Coral is finally showing good growth. It has all grown to the sand and is now expanding in circumference.

Today

Finally a solution to my Tube Worm problem. In 3 weeks this guy cleaned them up, not one left!
