Thanks :) theirs actually 3-4 spike fin gobies in there. Never see them. In the old 90 gallon they were out often. They are mesmerizing
That is a gorgeous tank and I love your ponies and pipefish! I swear those guys were brought here from another planet. They are so alien looking, especially the seahorses!! :)

Yes. :) unfortunately you never see them in this tank. In the old tank they all lived with my pistol shrimp under a rock.
Wow, I haven't heard of those guys hooking up with pistol shrimps before. :) That's amazing! Hopefully they start to make an appearance for you again soon! :)

Wouldn’t say paired up just bunking. Not a relationship like the videos you’d see. They just were in there when we took the rock out of the old 93 gallon

Process started last April when tank was delivered. It’s s
very cool! how long has it been setup? are you finding them difficult to care for?
started the transfer from the 90 gallon about this time last year. Tank was delivered May. First ponies were in mid July. Still learning which corals can live with them and which ones won’t. Scans do great blastos do iffy

Great tank. Love that u have corals / gorgs / macro algae and fish with the ponies. I do the same. Never agreed that Pony tanks needed to be so sterile, just have to make smart choices. Here is my Seahorse tank, although not sure u can see them in this pic.

Looks great. I see one of them. They are masters of disguise

Most things in there came from her store. We have 12 garden eels, 7-8 mollies, coco worms, feather deasturs, all types of hermit crabs, snails, abalones, strawberry crabs, emerald crabs, blue coral banded shrimp, gold banded shrimp,4 pipefish, 2 blue lined pipefish, 5 dart fish and a tomini tang. Think that’s most of everyone. Countless serpent starfish and a pair of harlequin shrimp to keep asterina snails in check
