had Scott from Choice help with aquascape and consult the royal could not be found for a day or so thought the move might have done him in, but there he is doing fine.

shot of the lunar lights plus more rock to mask the overflow

This site has been a great inspiration and many thanks to those that have helped me, especially the crew from Choice Aquariums in Farmington Hills for being patient with my questions and to explain the science behind things

Choice Aquariums in Farmington Hills sounds like a GREAT place we need more of those around for people just starting out or even for the people that have been doing this hobby for years that think they know every thing BUT still need to ask a question here or there

Thanks I'm very happy with them also, they really stir up every part of the tank. I will need to reposition them but will wait a few days to kind of watch the patterns. I love the fact that they are magnetic they really stick. I was constantly chasing the maxi-jets because they would come loose and then stir up the sand. I will also reposition my lights, atinic blues to the outside and middays to the middle then atinics in between. Still need to fire up the skimmer this weekend the tank went through a lot with the move and it's just starting to settle back in.

Thanks I did, it was a spare 29 gal tank had henderson glass cut me the baffles. I really like it and it was fairly cheap since I already had the tank
