Raj's Rebuild

Alright so this has been in the making for months and months. It's been going in stages and it has finally come to emptying the beast and resetting it.

Here are the pictures.





Here's where all the livestock is currently being held:


Getting the sand out:


yes, he's using a shovel.


Only casualties so far: 2 Yellow tangs...

You'll notice that even though this is Raj's rebuild, he can't be seen doing any actual work. The brats he grilled up, however, were delicious.

The tank now has 600+ gallons of tap water with 2 gallons of bleach.

There was an infestation of aptasia, kenya tree, pocillapora, and xenia.

The smell of the onions Raj grilled up covered the smell pretty well until Danny hit the pocket of smellyness.

It's hard to appreciate the size of the task at hand, until you see the pics with raj and danny inside the tank! Man that is a monster. Good luck and looking forward to watching the progress.

He was probably tanning on the back deck. Nude.
