Thank you. I just hope they grow in well. Only time will tell though.

 

 

Anyone know if the Anenome's on the Pom Pom crab will sting corals?

More progress.

 

Cut a hole in an acrylic bracket to mount a fan over the AC-70. This will be controlled by the RKL to help bring the temp down. RKL comes tomorrow, hopefully I will have a chance to test it then.

I was thinking about doing a platty also, but they are kinda bland.

 

Plattys don't go over SG0.015, Same as Swordtails.

 

Mollys do. But they get too big.

 

Guppies do. But do you really want a guppy in a marine tank? Pinned up against the glass all the time... >.>

Then It looks like it will probably be the Bumble bee goby. Unless, you think Endlers Live Bearers would convert over?

Thank you Sir!! I just hope everything fills in, in a timely fashion.

(I guess I posted this yesterday but forgot the pic, I am losing it)

I did a little more work on the tank last night. I mounted a fan in a piece of Acrylic that will be mounted to the wall over my AC-70. This will be controlled by my RKL to come on when temp reaches 79 degrees.

 

This is just a temp fitting for now.

So the RKL will be controlling.

Heater

Fan

Lights

Moon Lights

 

Also, I added a switch to my ATO. This allows me to turn it off when I do a water change. Worked like a champ yesterday.

*Sigh*

Yes, Endlers do convert over very well.

However mine have always found the smallest hole to jump out of... Next thing you are going to say you want a male endler, bumblebee goby and black sun coral... (My stocking plans. >.> )

Thanks everyone for the compliments . Now I am on the hunt for a shrimp our two to put in this thing. I can't find any small fish locally that I would like to add, so the tank will only be inverts probably.

Order a new LED driver. Going to run the LEDs at 350MA and see how I like it. Polyp extension is very short when the lights are on, and I am hoping less light intensity will help things a little.

Also, I added a Tiny Birdsnest Frag, a Small unknown SPS frag, and a tiny Porites Frag. Not much room for anything else in this tank, unless I can find some small stuff to attach to the bottom area of the rocks.
