Well about time for another update... Tank finished cycling about 2 weeks ago, I ordered my clean up crew from reefcleaners.org. I had ordered about 25 snails, 5 different types and got way more snails than that along with two surprise hermit crabs that sneaked in with my cerith snails. After much thought and getting the opinions and experience of others on a reefing forum that I belong to I decided to leave them in the tank and observe how they behave.
It has been a month now since I had gotten my blue green chromis and they have been doing well. I seem to have chromis that are a bit of a picky eater, if I try giving them pellet food they completly ignore it. They do however love shrimp and a few other prepared frozen foods that I give them. I have scallops that I am going to be trying but waiting on a order from foster and smith before I do anything with them. I have selcon and garlic guard coming in and with a portion of the scallops I am going to try my hand with making my own fish food. I am planning on adding some nori to it along with some krill and we will see what else. The other portion of the scallops I will blend up and freeze just as is for feeding.
Now for the reslly exciting news, today I picked up two new addtions for my collection.. anyone what to guess what they are?
I found a nice pair of clowns, originally I was thinking about getting either a pair of Percula or Ocellaris but the local place had some nice Clarkiis in that I ended up getting. I have a few pictures of them while they where in the 5g bucket acclimating. I am hoping to get some better pictures of them in the next day or two since the top down pictures really don't do them justice. If getting pictures prove to be a little too challenging I will try to at least get a video of them. Here are the pictures of the new additions and hopefully will have some more to share.
Here is one of both of them 2012 May 20_1628edited.jpg

They both have a little patch of white on their tails almost looks like they had brushed up against some white paint
