I will generally put up a smaller headsail first. A reefed main does not perform that well.

I worked at a salt water importer for years and have kept my fair share of fish and reef tanks. My latest was a 50G show that I took down before moving here in Feb. I bought some corals from a bad seller and got a hella case of bubble algae. With the species I have seen go away (not being collected, or just gone) and the selections and pricing nowadays I am satisfied with my choice as a good time to get out.
Beauty of a tank, by the way.

You can keep fish in a pot? Cool.
