I love the side view! The sea whip is beautiful. I do miss the open space to the right of the rocks in the front view, though.

I agree, the open space was pretty nice. Added to the more minimalist look of this tank.  It’s basically a different tank now, but I’m still digging it nonetheless.

Look how tiny the gobies are!  Also they have been eating pellets, so I'm relieved.

Wow, how small are your pellets? Those are so tiny but really adds further splashes of colour to the tank

I had tiny New Life Spectrum pellets (~.5mm size) for my tiny clownfish in my 20g, so been feeding them that plus ReefRoids.

Hi Scarlett. Welcome to your new home! Red crab, red fish, red and green macro. A little splash of yellow and a splash of purple. Turning into a rainbow. Maybe some orange and blue next.

5.  Larry, Harry, Barry, Sherry, and Terry.  My son insisted on names so I had to think quickly.

It really does look so much fuller now. I like it. I thought you only got 3 fish but 5 makes a better much group. Good idea for quick fish names.

I don't think I've ever had 5 of any fish before.  They do make a nice little group.  4 hang out together but 1 is more of a lone wolf.

Yes, I thought about getting those too and ended up getting my 3 scissortail dartfish instead... I love having fish that schoal together... so much fun to watch the interaction... I’ll be curious to hear whether the lone wolf joins the rest of the group as time goes on.

Haha but seriously... my three dartfish looked identical when I got them and now they are like the three bears with a papa, mama, and baby... big, medium, and small

Loved The Office!  Also, totally missed an opportunity naming the fish b/c if I just replaced the names Harry and Sherry with Garry and Jerry, I could've paid tribute to Parks and Recreation's Jerry Gergich! Doh! 🤦‍♂️

I went ahead and changed Sherry’s name to Jerry.  Just need to file the formal paperwork with the Fish Bureau of Records.

I really like the addition of the gorgonians. Adds a lot of interest.
