    Just totally awesome. so no issues with the Harlequin shrimp and the Blue throat trigger, I have been wanting to add Halequins but was afraid they would be an expensive meal for the trigger

    No problems at all, placed the shrimp in the about a year ago at night when lights were off. Fishes think every time I get near the tank I'm feeding them, for instance a while ago, I released a baby Regal Angel about 1" into the tank and the Blue Jaw ate it whole.

    I really do love the dimensions. My temporary tank pre owned was this 300DD just for almost 2 weeks then it broke, however even this event infected me on that tank so badly that I continued with a new one ;-)

    Very nice to see all the grown out corals. Such a rare sight these days with all the "nub" tanks. It's great that folks show off their frag and coral starts, they should be proud, but so nice to see someone with long term grown out colonies in such a variety of forms and colors.
