45 Gallon-

I can spend hours here looking at all your beautiful tanks...second only to spending time on mine. My turn to share! This is obviously a coral grow out tank with a height of only 12". When we moved here I discovered I did not have a wall without windows long enough for my 125. This tank works perfectly under my kitchen cabinets. Who needs a space for toasters anyway?

My husband and I ran a line from a large CO2 tank in the basement, up through the cabinet and into a Fluval 80 gal kit tank and into the bubble counter. I'm currently using a tupperware over the counter as a bell to increase absorption wgile I dave $ for a new UV sterilizer bulb. I have a CO2 reactor to place on the UV output to utilize same powerhead, so my flow will remain low.

I dont mind a little algea. I did have a time achieving balance, but finally there with a bit of help from the Flourish Excel and all the awesome advice on here. My Celebes Rainbows spawn around what I've allowed on the driftwood and the Otos graze around it.
