maybe something in your tank stung it?

Do acans sting cause that's the only thing that's really close to it

sure they do, but were the acans touching the ric? or the other way around?

Thanks its been fun. I can't wait tell I can start on my 55 gal. this summer the best part is my girlfriend is totally into it and we all know what that means. ... I get to all out I can't wait. But as far as this one goes I think the hardest part is not being able to do anything to it. Its killing me

bad and good news. the bad news first came home from work to find the pom pom , and both the two blue leg hermits all eating my clown goby, and the pulsing xenia died. the good news i hated the xenia. so what are some different fish you guys think could live in my tank?

well its a carnivore, and has two stinging anemones. i it got too hungry i am sure it is able to kill fish sitting on the substrate, so ya i think it was. is there a reason why the goby might have died on its own? can a coral sting it to death?

Hey how much for a 2.5 gal edge tank? :D Love the tank setup. Sorry about the goby, that sucks. I was at petco today and in one of their tanks a brittle starfish killed a lawnmower blenny right before me. :huh: How come you dont miss your xenia? They look cool and i bet it would be fun to propagate them.

i didnt like the xenia only cause it was just taking over so fast and it didnt stay put it "walked" around alot but my girlfriend had to have it. As far as building you a tank your timing isnt that great my girlfriend is ten days over due to have our first baby so i just cant start that for you would love to talk about it

Ok so the contest is over finally its been a long year of waiting to change stuff in my tiny tank. But some how my amazing girlfriend got me a 20 gallon because she wants fish. So point being I think ill be putting The Reef's Edge up for sale but not sure what to ask for it. Do you guys think 300 is to much for a turnkey one of a kind all in one pico please be honest and let me know what would be a reasonble price thanks a lot and if anyone wants to make an offer please do.

I'd say try $200 obo..

Too bad you can't keep this thing running, it only gets better with age (unless you kill it lol)
