i can add 2 more fish if i want, but i think i am only going to add one more fish if i can find one that is trained to eat dead food, most of them will only eat live food, and my tank is not established enough to have all the live copepods in it yet....

also with more fish its hard to keep the nitrates down, and in saltwater 0 nitrates is the goal Wink mine are at 10, but i am hoping the chaeto algae i have will eat up some of those nitrates.

i am wanting to get one of these:

and the little shrimp under it is called a "sexy shrimp" yes really...lol

ok everyone, i didnt like the layout of the tank so i moved things around, also moved the remainder of live rock from my 8 gallon over to this tank and took down the 8 gallon.

before extreme makeover:




after:



also took more pics of the corals since they dont seem to have an attitude today LOL!

Looks great! Makes me miss my 3 salt tanks... I had a hammer also.. love that thing!

Hopefully soon I can get back into salt.. 20+ freshwater tanks eats up my time and wallet!
Again, excellent work!

P.S. What type of tank is that?

yeah i am going to get the 58 up with the live rock and sand and let it cycle for a while then slowly add the stuff from the biocube... in no hurry..the tanks are sitting side by side..so i will have 2 salt tanks for a while...lol

yeah i have kept alot of fish, but have sold off all of my freshwater tanks and only have 2 salt tanks, soon to be one..
