Yeah, well you have a ton of room under your stand. You could add a small mini bar or at least a rum stash.

sounds fun. i think im gonna ditch the halide and go with the t5 or use the t5 fixture to make a led fixture :D


Depending on what I do with my next build, I have an LED light that I purchased from someone here that I may not end up using. If I don't use it, we may be able to work something out :).

you two might be right :D ill see if the lfs can get them. id hate to get them in the mail


The usual place had a lot of clowns. They are babies they keep in their sump. Not sure about pairs though.

Also, last time I was at Aqua-Tech, they did have clowns too, and I believe maybe a pair as well.

That is about average from the 3 LFS I've seen around us.

You want me to check with Saltycritters? They usually have them in stock and usually they are decent size ones too.

Do want. I wanted these guys in the first place with my damsel stocking but didn't want to order them. Now I'm just sticking with the three amigos I have. B)

Noooo...Not damsels!!!!!!!

Evil evil fish!

Actually, I have one damsel now. I had 3 but one ate one of the others and the one that did the eating got sold back to a LFS.

My Talbots is about 3-4" now in the 55g.

G'luck with yours. Hopefully they aren't too evil.

I'll check with Saltycritters and let ya know on the shrimp.
