Hi, nice tank. I have had my Copperband for 5 years, if I could even figure out how to add pictures to this site (I know there are plenty of threads with instrustions), I would show you. He or She is fat, and hangs with my yellow tang picking at scaps in the tank.

Copperband is doing great. Still eating everything - mysis, pellets, etc

I need to post some updated pictures and video. I will soon.

How is your 120 doing?
Thanks for asking. I'm taking it slow. It's settling down and I'm adding more coral little by little. I'm still trying to figure out my final fish list lol. My tomato clowns keep kicking up sand, the lyretail are aggressive and I've been unable to convince them to go into my diy trap so I'm thinking of more "creative" ways to get them. I rigged up an LED setup and I'm liking the look and less heat. It looks like my major algae problems are gone and it's great that as the tank matures I am doing less which translates to less conflicts in and out of the tank lol! My routine is basically change water, topoff, feed. I run carbon and biopellets, dose calc, alk and mag and so far things look much better.

Brooklyn Photo Update

I figure I'm overdue for an update. My reef has been progressing pretty well. It is very interesting watching everything grow or not grow for that matter, and figuring out how to help the situation. Thanks to everyone for all of the advice, frags, etc along the way. Onto the photos:
