    - Darn, Live Sale - I never have good luck with live sales. If I drive down, can I pick up one of the frags? I only live a few hours away.

    Yeah just let us know when you're thinking of visiting. I would suggest at least one more week of healing before you come down

    Its been a while since we updated everyone! We've since added some more acros to the tank, replaced the fish we lost during Irma and started working towards making this a pretty cool display tank.

    We added some fish, mostly schooling fish, some wrasses(including an exquisite) and a small naso. Looking for some higher end ones to add in there, maybe some different aberrant tangs etc. Here are some pics of the clown fish pair we added

    We're debating putting this guy in there but will most likely stick to smaller tangs

    And this little guy was eating pellets within a day or two of arrival so we just HAD to toss him in here
