    Checking in. Still no saltwater, but I am a lawyer and have a job now so it's just a matter of finding a house and setting up a new tank. I will start a new thread when that happens.

    Cape Horn

    Just thought I would drop by and update people on what I've been doing. Since law school demands lots of time and money, I went with a planted tank. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aQ3D8iFJYQ'>Here is my new 40 Gallon Breeder. It's got a school of x-ray tetras, rummynose tetras, neon tetras, and oto cats. In addition to that there's a soon-to-be-mated pair of convict cichlids and a colony of red cherry shrimp in the sump. Plants include marimo moss, dwarf baby tears, dwarf hair grass, a mystery sword, and telanthera cardinalis. Basically same set up as the reef but only using one light, no powerheads, and no protein skimmer. Been up since september/october. Thanks for stopping by!

    College 3-Gallon Reef Tank!

    Cool, I worked at a bio-chem laboratory one summer sampling water from streams and wells on a contract with the department of highways to make sure new road systems weren't polluting natural habitats. It was super fun, I got paid more than I should, and spent most of the summer outside playing in creeks and all my meals were paid for. Man it was sweet.

    What job did you get?

    Don't worry about chasing a number with ph or dkh, stability is more important. Messing with buffers only really reaps benefits in more delicate systems, not in a macro tank. The less stuff you add, the better you'll be in the long run IMO.

    Hey now, I have plenty of tanks. They are just empty at the moment. I'm home for the weekend but I'm bringing my 75 back with me so there's that. And fresh or salt, I'll make my thread here. Probably in this thread.

    I guess they are letting just any old POS become TOTM now. Just kidding! Damn, this tank looks good. Congrats and well deserved!

    Cleaner Shrimp Q

    Yes they are hermaphrodites, my last pair took turns carrying eggs. Great natural food source for the other tankmates!
