Time for an update. This tank has spawned four new ones! In one way or another anyway.
1) The actual tank that leaked and I resealed will be my first attempt at an actual iwagumi. I'm getting some ohko stone from Han and I'll probably just get some HC locally when the time comes to set it up. No pics yet.
2) The 60-f. I had been planning on setting this one up and moving the CRS into it, but the leak kind of moved up the time table for it. I still have more moss coming for it, and some anubias petite and mini bolbitis to add, but it's mostly done at this point. It's been running for about a week and half and the shrimp have been in it for a few days. It has the substrate from the leaky tank and bio from two tanks so it's cycled and everything. Just needs to fill in. A lot. The scape was strongly influenced by youjettisome's old 60f layouts, although mine isn't nearly as nice.
3) I got one of the little cadlight's 3 gallon low iron tanks awhile ago and it had been sitting empty. I also had the wood leftover from the 6 gallon. I was actually going to trade it locally for some stones, but since I traded Han for some, I decided to keep the wood. I cut it down to fit and thus my new desktop tank has been born:
4) The replacement tank that was sent to me is going to be my pico reef. Got the rock structure set up last night and going to get sand for it today. Will start cycling it tomorrow. I already have my clown goby and 5 sexy shrimp in our QT tank and they're doing well. Got some zoa and paly frags over the weekend which are currently in one of my husband's tanks.
I'm going to start an all-in-one thread soon so I can just keep track of everything in one place. Probably won't post any more updates on this thread.
