thanks micheal.
so far everything is doing good, the smaller corals have opened up, could barely see them earlier....

i took a few quick pics tonite.

here they are:

FTS: and the big ugly powerhead is going, gonna get a korila, nano maybe.


jaque the cleaner shrimp:


crush (named after the turtle in finding nemo LOL)the clown fish in his nem, he loves this thing, really neat to see:


and little teeny corals, they have all popped open, they were completly down in a rock looking thing...with tiny holes in it, kinda like a sponge...

thanks betty, i I love you it, figure i would start small and work my way up to the bigger 28 gallon.. Laughing

i figure if i can maintain this one then the bigger one wont be too hard... and i can have 2 salt tanks running....lol...

my 75 gallon setup is what paid for this, and some other stuff i got today...just random stuff for around the house, and some puppy potty pads for Mo. Wink

thanks everyone,

i found out from the local salt forum that i need to get the maroon clown out of there, they said they get way too big.... so i am going to try to trade him for a pair of percs, or a single perc and hope it hosts the anenome. Wink

so i have decided the nem and the clown are gonna have to go, the nem is taking up alot of space, that could be used for zoas, and frogspawn...lol

hopefully someone will trade the clown and nem for 2 false percs...lol

Aww, that's too bad. They look so cute together. I have no idea what a perc is, false or not. What a Face It'll be fun to follow along with this tank.

a perc is a species of clownfish...nemo is the type.

false percula clownfish is the whole name.

yeah they are cute together but it would be torture to keep an 8" fish in an 8 gallon tank, not to mention the anemone is gonna get pretty big too...

its going to be a LONG time before that maroon outgrows the tank, but they are one of the most aggressive clowns out there. and that anemone will sting corals, and they can move to about anywhere they want... i think ur making a good decision

thanks everyone! i might have a new home for the nem and the clown,
saturday i am getting some frogspawn,some purple zoas and maybe a few shrooms for free from a local reefer, he is gonna come over and show me how to do a water change and also bring me a korilia nano power head so i can get that ugly huge one out of there....lol


and then on sunday i am going to be picking up some purple and pink zoas and also some neon green zoas.

and hopefully a local reefer decides to frag his orange bam bam zoas so i can get some of those too Wink

gonna do the whole tank zoas,and frogspawn, and some ricordia since there is a few pieces in there...i love it!!

and now i wanna hurry up and move to setup my 28 gallon nano cube!

this is truley an adventure, every time i look in the tank there is something new, today i saw a teeny little crab, bout the size of my thumb nail...not sure what kind it is, it hides in the rock and i cant tell, cant even tell the color of it...lol...


THIS IS VERY EXCITING, to the point i am selling all of my freshwater fish except my pair of gold occies and fry Wink
