I decided to keep my 30 gallon halfmoon tank and turn it into a fishless mixed reef tank. It is done cycling and I'm getting my calcium reactor hooked up tomorrow. Next step will be adding coral. I will probably eventually switch to a better light but I think it will be fine getting me started.

This could be interesting, and if I was a betting man I would give you 3 months before a fish appeared in this tank. :)

I was thinking the same thing. I'm not sure how long it will last before I buy a fish. I've already been looking at some Gobies.

Well, think quickly the shark arrives tomorrow and if no one snatches him up im going to have to snag him and straight into the 10 gallon tank for temporary keeping.

I've tried to "slowly" add corals, but 17 corals later, I'm starting to run out of room.

I ordered a second LED for a little more light. I like the Orbit Marine LED because of the even light distribution.

You added a bunch, but it looks good so far.

Pretty nice, if you need an emergency contact for your tank sitter, let me know.
