    So tank has been up for 1 year down grade from 220 (floors couldn't support lol) frog spawn from large tank green anemone from large tank these 2 I have had since 2012 went from a 30 to 150 to 220 back to this tank. I now have a set of 4 firefish in my quarantine with 2 pajama Cardinals. All are eating well and look very healthy main display is looking awesome it now has 2 rainbow bubbles and a few new corals. I have been through a few set backs and this is me telling my story.

    More to come... 1471049769229.jpg

    SO BEEN AWHILE SINCE I UPDATED ON MY AQUARIUM. I've added a few fish and did a full overhaul and turned the tank 90 degrees to change viewing angles. everything is doing really good all my fish are very active and interactive with us.
    As for my stocking I have:
    4 firefish
    2 pj cardinals
    1 orange stripe prawn goby
    2 clownfish
    1 young tomini tang.
    I plan on adding a green mandarin, maybe a flasher wrasse, and a coral beauty angel.

    As for inverts I have 1 green long tentical anemone and 3 rainbow bubble tips, a cleaner shrimp, and a black and red urchin, and also a mix of snails and hermits for clean up.

    This tank is set up as a macro algae soft coral reef. with maybe a few LPS thrown in. Here is a pic from today. tank-1-6-17.jpg

    so here goes with a few more pix after i got home and fed a few more angles i think i should mention that i remeasured the tank and i was wrong this tank is a 50 short 36"x18"x18". if i can i will update the title of my bui;d thread and also here soon i will try to load some pictures of my closet which now holds my sump/refugium and my chiller and external protein skimmer. hopefully i will be able to get a tripod and get my good nikon camera out and take some better pix these are from my samsung s7 edge phone.

    Nothung new to report. All fish are amazing. My bubbles are getting bigger. Green LTA is awesome and huge. Also a duncan coral i got a lilwhile ago has 1 out of 6 heads and i actually see life. It has come out i hope im finally figuring a couple things out. Testing and keeping alk. Is doing wonders i dose brs 2 part with half cal. To alk. Since most everything i have is soft i test alk. Every other day run at 11-12 and calcium i dint test alot once every couple of weeks im wanting to test more just alot going on. I test others once a month and everything is awesome. 0 amm. 0 nit. 25 nitrate which maybe a lil high. Ive always had high nitrate thats why i stay mostly softy with a few lps. Things are looking good.


    REEFAPALOOZA IM SO EXCITED!!!!!

    Hey r2r i was just sitting and watching my fish and i have noticed over the last couple of weeks my clownfish are starting to swim on eachother very gently rubbing together i think they are very happy together. I have the chocolate snowflake and a snowflake clown that i had to get at seperate times due to the gladiator i had gotten with the chocolate passed during qt process. My LFS had a large school from a local breeder which is where mine originally came from as well. The store let me pick another clown at no charge.

    Anyway, Im curious as to this behavior. Is it courting? They still havent taken to one of my anemones. Maybe maybe not getting kinda close though. Any thoughts on whether they will or wont?
