Little update: (not going keep counting the weeks. )
Not much has changed, no real problems, just enjoyment!
However, I will be moving in May, so this tanks day's are numbered. This is an opportunity for growth though- I am planning to retire the 45-f and upgrade to a 60-f, which is very exciting. Along with this I will be getting a Solar II light, ADA ferts, and other goodies. I may just end up selling the 45-f, or I'll save it for a second tank (nano-reef??), depending on how much room I'll have.
I thought I'd add some more pictures as the tank reaches it's completion. It's really wonderful to just not have problems in a tank- no algae, no dying fish or plants, no shoddy equipment giving way. It's worth it all.
Just thought I'd add, my computer is down so I had to edit these on a laptop with a bad monitor, so excuse my pictures if they appear grossly miss-edited.
My OCD is going crazy with all this moving mess in my space
