    Okay l kept you guys waiting long enough. Everything is currently closed up which is a little odd but l will have to do some digging into parameters to find what is wrong. Also just fed the tank. Please excuse the dirty glass. Will definitely post better pictures when everything is open

    What is everyone’s thoughts on Euphyillia lining the walls of the middle cave. Kinda like what I have going do far. l think it would look cool specially with a big Duncan at the bottom.

    New Aquascape! May or may not have made room for an H. Magnifica Anemone with some skunk Clowns. IMG_0226.JPG IMG_0227.JPG IMG_0229.JPG

    l am starting to hear crickets in here again. This isn’t good. Who’s down for an update? Today was Black Friday and big things happened!

    So this was one of the best black Friday’s to date. Well for the reefing world. Due to my Return pump taking a crap on Wednesday l was forced to order a new one. L had been eyeing up the new Vectra S1 and finally pulled the trigger. Well that came today as well as a quick throw together hard pipe. L am hoping to do a color scheme of Blue and Grey: IMG_0238.JPG IMG_0249.JPG
    Now that l covered my return pump problem l am going full boar into my harem of clowns and Anemone....(s). l ordered my 5 PINK skunk Clownfish early this morning from @coralreeftn for a whopping 8.10 per fish! They are going for $20-$30 everywhere else IF they were available at all! They should arrive Wednesday: IMG_0225.JPGPhoto Creds:mad:melev

    Return pump: Check
    Clownfish: Check

    Next is an Anemone for the Clowns. L have been in contact with a fellow R2R user about an H. Magnifica Anemone that has been in his care for a few years and is beautiful. And big enough to house all 5 Clowns, perfect! So l was awaiting a few more details this morning so l went and cruised my local fish shops. First one happens to be Petco. Nothing good their as usual, then l drove my 1hr drive to a little store. Their l found a tank with 2 Large maroon clowns and 2 5”+ Rainbow RBTA. Here is the kicker. They were $60 a piece. Both were in the same rock. After talking with the guy he said their was no way he was getting them off. So he sold me the whole rock with both nems, a pack of Green Palys, and a snail hitchicker who l found later for $100. Couldn’t pass it up. IMG_0248.JPG IMG_0242.JPG IMG_0243.JPG

    So now I have taken a good chunk out of my bank account it was time to call it quits for the day. L came home and acclimated this rock that l now had to find room for, and messed with the tank all afternoon. Finding a good spot for this rock was difficult. l had just made a new and improved scape and while positioning this rock 1/2 my scape collapsed. So long story short, l have a new Aquascape: IMG_0244.JPG IMG_0245.JPG IMG_0246.JPG IMG_0247.JPG
