Sweet pics bud....when did you get the sixline? They are some great fish for sure and mine had great personality. He got too full of pis* and vinegar for my 55 gallon tank and started harassing the clowns too much for my liking.

 

Great deal on the rics. They are Ricordea Yuma for sure. Let me know if they every split and we can possibly trade. I'll send you a frag of my Ricordea Florida when it splits as well.

 

Nice update.

eeek too many fish. I think the "brain" looking coral is a candycane. Also that large snail looks like a mexican turbo. You better keep up with youre waterchanges because that is quite a bioload you have got there.

^^^That's a lot of work! But not too bad with only one tank...

 

Love the goby pics! Lots of personality. (Fishality?)

 

And all the others, too, esp. the yumas.

so i wake up this morning to look at my new crocea clam, and i cant find Mr. Stupid. *my Chromis* so i look on the floor, since i just recently went open top. nothin, so i go to clean my filters, and there he is, laying in the second chamber....but luckily he had water pouring over his gils, so he was alive, i just tossed him back in and hes breathing real heavy and is real weak. I think he might make it tho. do you guys think hell pull thru?!

First off, sorry to hear about the chromis...sounds like he was an awesome addition to the tank.

 

Great job on keeping the tank going during the power outage....I betcha that was hilarious to the people walking by your door and car :)

 

Tank looks awesome....how long ago did you get the plate and the crocea clam? Everything looks nice and healthy in the tank and looks like everything is sucking up the new light.

 

Great job bud.
