Solved the noise problem i used a rubbermaid cerial box as a baffle around the drain into the fuge and it also killed all the micro bubbles that were gettin sent to the display.

I finally got a picture of my fire shrimp! I put him in over a month ago, thought he was dead untill he attacked my hand the other day lol. Talk about being suprised. Well i snapped a quick pick when he came out to feed. Sorry for the quality he doesnt give me much to work with.

Thank you i need to replace the picture of the leathers. I had just added the devils hand and it lost its color and was shedding. I didnt know it was gonna turn as bright blue as it is now!

That bubble coral is amazing! I don't know why this thread doesn't have more views or comments because you have a very nice tank going on! Keep it up man

Thank you everyone ... im surprised everyone likes the bubble so much i traded a mandarin dragonette with a local reefer for that bubble, the brown frogspawn, and a clump of cheato. I think i made out like a bandit.

 

Ive been thinkin about swapping the cardinal for a pygmi angel. The cardinal only comes out at night. And also i want a blue fish. But my last blue damsel was a butt head. What do yall think?

Isnt that a damsel? Wouldnt it be a butt head like all damsels?

Chromis are generally much more peaceful, but they have no personality.

 

My tank is full of butt heads. :lol:

I really want another yellow tail blue damsel but i dont want a bunch of nipped fins. I dont care if its a beginer fish i love its color and activity they are just mean little turds. that was my first fish and it bullied a coral beauty to death.

 

The pygmi really doesnt have the same blue that the damsel does

They are pretty, I have a Blue and Gold Damsel that's the same colors as the ytd. It's a longer body and he acts a lot like a wrasse. Damsels are some of the best fish out there, just not that much for nano tanks.

Honestly looking at the blue damsels in the lfs is what made me start a saltwater. And to think my fish obsession started only a little over two years ago with a betta bowl.
