Well, I finally grew a pair and stood up to the wife. I stared her right in the eyes, put my foot down, and proceeded to beg her until she said I could set up a small tank LOL. So now that it's all setup and starting to cycle I thought I would share it here and have a thread for it. 



I chose the Fluval SEA 13.5g EVO setup. Basically because it fits perfectly on my desk and is an AIO. For the sand I am using the Bimini Pink Sand and I chose the Real Reef Rock to make the arches. I have a little over 10lbs in there for now. The pic shown is just a crappy cell phone pic but you get the idea. Wink

So, What shall I put in it once it's cycled? I am thinking of doing mostly Rock Anemones and maybe a pair of clowns. I am thinking of using an MP10 and upgrading the light to the Current USA Orbit Marine LED but only for the controllability. The Stock light that comes with it is a 16W High Output 14,000K Fixture and the Current USA is only 18W in comparison. The LED's are pretty close in quality. In order to upgrade to the Current USA I will have to modify the hood though.

Seems like a lot of work, for a little bit more light.

The only reason I want to upgrade is to have the programming features. Otherwise this one works well. Still haven’t decided yet.

OK so I added some barnacles into the tank along with a few crabs to eat the algae. Also started some Chaeto in chamber 1 and added an LED light. The Chaeto must have had some Copepods and a few baby brittle stars in it because thats the only thing I added from the LFS that could have carried them but I have a few stars making homes in the rock. Probably end up as food if they don't survive. About half the size of a dime each.
