isn't there some shrimp that eats aiptasia?

Yes, peppermint shrimp do but my tank just got set up I need to let it cycle.

I would get some joe juice and nuke that aiptasia now

That is my plan I am going to get the aiptasia X I work at Petco as a dog trainer so I can get it cheaper than joe's juice from the LFS.

Looking Good!!

 

Are you going to stick with the stock filter and lighting?

No, I am waiting for my next payday to start upgrading... Stock stuff will have to suffice for now.

I never noticed how snuggly those plexi tops fit on there. Planning on keeping that top on when you upgrade? Prob just take it to Home Depot or something and get it cut to fit however you need it to.

 

OT: I work at Petco too :P

I'll probably cut it myself it is acrylic and not hard to cut I had this one cut exactly to fit the filter and light
