LOL! Nice!

He seems to be settling in nicely! He found a little ledge to sleep under last night! Seems very active as well!

 

Nice first choice. smart thing to add him before other more aggressive fish.

Very nice! I got a firefish but he usally stays all the way in the back all day long except for a few moments when its feeding time. How do you check your nitrates? Any special test kit?

Thanks! Another reason I added this guy first was... I'M BROKE!!! :lol: He was the cheepest of the fish I want to add. Works for me!

Thank you!

I guess I got a real go getter... He loves to stay right in the front of the tank, pretty much dead center! The second, the lights go out, he heads off to bed in his overhang/cave!

No "special" test kit for nitrates... Just the one that came in my API Saltwater kit. I really need to pick up the API Reef Kit soon though...

Great... The new Firefish is MIA!!! I've looked everywhere... My rockwork isn't the most complex thing in the world, so I should be able to find him!!!

I did notice my big Nassarius snail was out and about this morning before I left, and still out when I came home... Which is NOT normal for him! :o

 

Man, now I'm bummed!!!

DAMN IT!!! :(

I have (had) my first dead fish... Saw the Fire shrimp polishing off the remains in his little hide out! It was the same spot I found my Nassarius hanging out when I got home.

I'm stumped!!! All my parameters have been in check. My nitrates where a tad high, between 5-10ppm, but everything else was spot on!

Kind of sad... I thought I was givin' this guy a good home, and BAM, I KILL HIM!!! :angry:

Got 2 new fish yesterday... A nice mated pair of misbar clowns!

I also got a featherduster, but I'm a little worried about it! It has been almost a full day, and he still hasn't came out!?!?

Any ideas...

 

Anyway, these two really seem to like their new home! Right away, they took up residence in my Hammer... NICE!!!

Let's see... New additions,

Clowns are doing great!

All is much better now...

I was having a pretty bad problem with Cyano. Over the course of a couple of weeks, I started to feel like I couldn't keep u with it. So, I decided to use chemicals...

Red Slime Remover to be exact... I added it last Saturday, did a 25% water change 5 days later, and BAM... Cyano GONE!!! Everything looked great while using the RSR, so I am pretty pleased!

 

Either Sunday, or Monday, I'll be picking up a couple of frags for cheap from a local reefer, so we'll see what I end up with!!!

FINALLY... Some life in this thread!!!

Thanks for ALL the compliments bro!!! It's nice to hear someone thinks it looks good... I'm NEVER very happy with it!!!

The clowns seem to be very happy... I'm glad I ended up getting them. I was going to get a pair of Picasso's, but these misbars are fine by me!

Wow, Nice tank!

I like how your clowns are almost naked looking! And the rock in the bottom right is sweet looking!

Thanks!!!

I bought mine from there as well! As far as the stand goes... I LIKE IT! At first I kind of wanted the other "s" shaped one. I'm glad I went with this one! It has enough room inside to mount the balast, and timer for the lights, and most of my other crap. It's pretty solid as well!

Nothing very exciting going on here... Changed my aquascape up a bit this weekend. Gives me a little more room with everything back against the back wall...

Sorry for the crappy pictures! I was in a hurry, and everyone was still kind of mad from the small move... :huh:
