Sweet looking tank man. I see you have to firefish in there. I was actually just looking today at maybe getting a pair then I read how they could kill each other or something along those lines. Did you get yours as a pair or did you just buy two?

i initially got a pair, and one of them died, and then i got a second, there was some fin nipping at first
but now they get along great but and swim around together for the most part

VERY NICE! Worth the wait... :)

How's the Monti doing - hard to tell in the first shot. Your Zoa collection makes me jealous.

the monti is doing well, its starting to encrust onto the holding rack i made
when in first got it, the edges were a little bleached, its got its color back around the edges

im stoked on my zoa's too, ive been waiting to add to my collection for awhile, now that im on break i have time to frag and go trade
like you said ... worth the wait

Nice Acan Lord shot.

I am glad to be on break also, though I am new to the California quarter system. When I was an undergrad, I wouldn't have been out of school until yesterday.

yea the quarter system has its ups and downs, imo, its like how well can you take a punch to the face... 10 weeks of a lot of work, but then you get it over with pretty quickly

Sorry for the hiatus

Some updates:
I got a nice new frogspawn
magicans paly's
1 young ocellaris clown, i got a pair one didnt make it =[

AND ... powerbrite LEDs ... the only thing is, its not long enough to light the whole tank, so if i put it the middle, it misses all the corals on the 2 islands, but if i put it to one side or the other, the tank looks 2-toned.
As of right now i feel like I need to rescape to make use of the new light.
also i need to figure out how to mount the LEDs, im thinking about cutting mounting legs for light fixtures, and should i put them in front of the my sundial or the back????

I don't have any pics, either tonight or tmo ill take some more
thanks for looking in
