Ok, you guys. I should know better, but I did something stupid today. I had to go to the lfs to get bbs for my baby angelfish and I took my daughter with me. I know, mistake number 1. Mistake number 2 was letting her talk me into going into the fish room. She got to see the flame angel in person, which was awesome because it gets her that much more excited to get the tank set up. But then she saw... a lemon peel angel. And now she wants that one too. Explaining to a 6 year old ball of emotions that 2 dwarf angels in a 75g tank is a bad idea sucks! She kept going on about how our "other angels live together and they're different colors." (Like the colors of the dwarf angels are the problem lol) She just refused to believe that these 2 fish couldn't live together in a small 75g tank. Oh well. I'll try again tomorrow. Wish me luck! I'm going to need it lol

Lol! We looked at the Nemos after we saw the other 2, but she talked about the flame and the lemon peel all night. Her conversation at dinner was those 2 fish and what she's going to name them (Sparky and Lemonade, in case you were wondering lol) And here I am, thinking about getting a coral beauty instead of flame. I didn't tell her that, though LOL

Yes she was and she brought her minions into the frame too. It's the red hair I tell you the red hair.
To be honest I was already looking I just needed a friendly shove to pull the trigger on one.
@Katrina71 @NY_Caveman @crusso1993 @Why-Me @Magellan and others have helped me a ton. @dantimdad has also been a big help. He is also the light guru

The problem with this list is that I'm forgetting people. To those of you I forgot, I'm sorry .

Whew! Looks like you're safe with me! I don't have red hair lol.

I really do appreciate the help you all have given me. Especially when I haven't even gotten the tank started yet! Lol. I don't think I would have the confidence to do this without all of you. Thank you! :)

At least I'm not the only one lol

By the way, @NY_Caveman, after I read your post I looked up the dimensions of a 200g. Turns out I have the PERFECT spot for it ;) ;Hilarious

The struggle is real
OMG! She has got it too. Reef addiction is real!
And her tank isn't wet. Look what we help to create
We can all stop any time we want ;)
That phrase helps me to sleep at night. I wake up and go not today. I just started my 3rd tank. I just let my boss think it's his.
