    Thanks Strider! It really would be interesting to go back later on to see what i had done.

    Update: Small video of the tank I recorded:

    Update:
    So the skimmer came in today... I love everything about it, especially the surface skimmer attachment and the built in filter chamber that comes filled with carbon... It's working great too... Nice thick skimmate BUT it's super loud. The tank is in my bedroom and since the skimmer is just out in the open the noise is unbearable.

    So I'm throwing around the idea of returning it and purchasing an aqua clear 70 to turn into a mini HOB refugium instead....

    Thoughts?

    What type of skimmer do you currently have ?

    There usually are modification that can be done to most HOB skimmers to make them more quite which can be easier (and cheaper) than modifying a aquaclear into a HOB refugium.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    It was a Red Sea Prizm Deluxe. Was the loudest thing ever, I returned it and went with a AquaticLife Mini Skimmer (Internal). This thing is amazing! its day 2 and its breaking in nice! My circulation pump also came in, this things is awesome!

    Here are some pics I took today:

    Glad to hear the new skimmer is working out great for you

    One of the first skimmers that I owned was a Red Sea and I could not replace that thing fast enough.

    Your looks like it is coming along nicely. I really like the multi color zoa frag

    I think everyone starts with a Red Sea, and no one keeps it longer than a week, lol.

    Tell me about it! I just shipped it back out today. Decided to use that money towards some new lighting! That submersible LED light I had decided to give out. Took it out and realized it had filled with salt water... BOO!!! So I ordered this puppy http://www.amazon.com/Wave-point-12-...keywords=01119 to use alongside my fluval 6w led fixture for a total of 22 watts... should be enough for softies in a 10 gallon nano! Plus I heard a lot of good things about this wave-point fixture.

    Here are some Update pics... (I went with a tomato clown and a yellow tail damsel... I know, I know! no clowns in a 10 gal, I couldn't resist though and I have plans on starting a second 40 gallon breeder reef that I'll move him into)... Anyway its an aggressive little fella... when it comes to feeding time, it attacks the damsel if it comes anywhere near.

    Nice little setup! Yes, those tomato clowns are quite aggressive. Is it beating hard on the damsel relentlessly or only during feeding time?

    Is that a plastic band on the LR, lol? Did you get it from Petco?
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.
