Pretty crazy life for that girl. 5 days old and she has already travelled half way across the country and now reproducing. What the heck will she do for an encore?

Hi all. I think I've convinced myself to convert my 75g into SW instead of my 29g (@sfin52, I believe that you predicted that this might happen in my meet & greet post lol). There are just so many fish out there that I want to get but aren't suitable for a 29g lol. I'm not going to be able to drill it because its tempered glass, so no sump. I'll have the Tidal 110 on it with a couple of power heads. Dry/live rock, live sand. This will be a FOWLR for quite a while, at least until the tank matures and I feel comfortable enough to try a reef. My current stocking plan is (this is the plan for the 29g, I'm just going to add to it) :
2 ocellaris clowns
? banggaii cardinals (I'm not sure how many I can have in this size of tank)
1 Yasha goby/ pistol shrimp pair
1 royal gramma
hermit crabs, cleaner shrimp, an urchin (if you have other suggestions to add to this group, I'd love to hear them)

These are the fish I'm looking at to possibly add to my stocking list:
1 flame angel (I know that this fish could be a problem if/when I start adding corals)
1 simple damselfish (will the fact that this is a 75g cut down on the aggression?)
1 fairy wrasse (either a lubbock's, whip fin, or ruby longfin)

I'm open to other suggestions. Can I get away with another bottom dweller or should I just stick to the 1 yasha/shrimp pair?
These fish sound good to me!

Congratulations on a beautiful anemone. Always wanted a split from Brian.

She looks like she is splitting but I get confused trying to figure them out.

Did you wake up to one or two this morning?
OH..Now were left hanging ;) prioritys:p:)
Hey, now. I had to drop the kids at their grandma's and get to the barn!

To me, she still looks like one. I haven't been able to get a good pic of her foot today, but I'll keep trying and I'll post it if I get one

Any chance that bta splits often @NY_Caveman ?? I keep staring at it. I love it so much ;Joyful
Lately it splits too much. In fact both split last week. I have a user who claimed the other split if I can get it, but I suppose I should start a list. I don’t have room for any more!
