so anyway i moved the coral in, recieved shipment number two to go in qt and noticed the clowns being un clownlike and dragging my acans all over the place.

i got these clowns when i helped my buddy pick up his 90 g, so he offered to trade his wyoming whites to see if the clowns would do better back in their origional home...

they didnt

just look at em over there all guilty as hell

so this week i have

shipments from cherry corals and savagereefers.com coming in.

as well as a t5 hybrid with 4 ati blu plus coming.

pretty excited about lighting upgrade.

my maintenance so far is simply 25% waterchanges every 10 days floss changes every 5.

i skipped the ugly new tank stage by keeping lights off and skimming heavy through the cycle.

updates to come.

happy reefing all.
