The refugium and the spec are really something special!

Nice work, looks like the fuge has a lot growing in it already. How much flow are you getting via the overflow?

The fry being in the greenwater tank might not be so bad, I've heard fish grow much faster in greenwater tanks, even if they don't look the greatest.

Thanks! It makes my maintenance easier too. Now when I do top offs and water changes I don't have to worry about slowly dripping in freshwater or cold water, I can just dump it in the fuge and turn the pump down to a trickle so I don't shock the anenome and the crabs.

Thank you, I'm only getting about 10 gph tops I'd say, about as much as 3 air line tubes could syphon. This is due to the fact that I went with the smallest pvc pipes they make, and have a very small height difference between the overflow and outflow to the refugium. It's fine for what I'm doing but wouldn't try to reuse it if I went to a 10 gallon or anything.

Well I can vouch that it is true, these guys are growing super fast compared to fry I've grown normally before this. They're already big enough for me to go ahead and move them out so I can try to aggressively fight the green water.

I'll have to remember that fry growing technique if I ever want to pump out my Least Killi fry.

Where did you find those? Let me know if you're ever looking to offload any of them, I can definitely picture some of those in one of these tanks!

Sure are! 17x8 and 17x9 both +35...... Best. Wheels. Ever. I bought them on mr2oc for only 900 shipped with tires and then I re painted and polished them out myself. I DIY a lot as you can see from my tanks!

Finally got around to painting the overflow black. Also picked up some cool new fish, peacock grudgeon gobies. I got 3 and put them in tank 2 and they are doing well. I also finally found some ruby barbs for my 90 gallon as well as some German blue rams. Here are some pics:
