Hey well i have recently upgrades from my 29 gallon thought i would start a new thread for this tank. Heres how it started, I was tired of looking at the scratches on the sides and front glass on the 29 so i decided to upgrade. My mother and I had went out looking at tanks and we came across this one and she had mentioned she really liked this one it was on sale tank and stand out the door was $270 and some change. I really enjoy this tank alot better gives me more options for aquascaping. I do have a DIY stand idea i would like to build for this tank to help out the foot print a little. The stand now has a half circle foot print and is sorta wobbly so i would rather alter the stand and re-inforce it with a bigger structured stand so i can hide a sump adventually.

Tank-30 gallon half moon
Lighting- T5 H/O
Filtration- HOT Marine land canister
Flow- 1 Maxi jet 600, 1 Maxi jet 400, and canister.
Skimmer
60lbs rough guess of LR
2 1/2" mixed live sand and silica sand bed
Sump- In the makings still :)
1 Firefish
2 Clarki clowns
1 Scooter blenny
1 Yellow watchmen goby
3 Cleaner shrimp
10 Snails
10 Redleg crabs
2 Emerald crabs
Has mixed coral combination.

UPDATE**** I have built my sump! I went to Home Depot today had to grab a few pieces but i got it for the most part. I will adventually look into getting my tank drilled but that wont be for a while. Display tank looks alot better without all the equipment inside too :), the sump is a 10 gallon tank with a Triton3 return pump 850GPH at 7ft., Skimmer, Carbon chamber with overflow ran into it, chunks of rock out of my tank that i didnt like lol, 2 emerald crabs <--- Long story! Lost 2 fish to them suckers. I have a LED fixture a cheapo that came with the tank as my sump light figured it would put plenty of light source i need into it. I will have a video update of the sump and tank setup on my old stand re-inforced. Thank you DereksReef for all the help with my questions :). Your knowledge really helped me out on this build. Thanks again!!!
