Thanks for the comments.

I'm planning for a pair of tank bred ocellaris clowns mainly. Then probably a goby, blenny, or firefish. Haven't really decided on one of these yet. I'll just see what my LFS has. I really like clown gobies so I'll go with that if I find one.

I was looking at my scape over the weekend and I started to feel like it didn't look very natural. I moved the top rock to the side and filled in the gap in the middle a little. Opinions?



I've got plenty of diatom growth going on so I went ahead and added 5 ceriths yesterday. They have been slowly but surely munching it down.

Don't worry about the Diatoms, they will go away by themselves.

Yeah I'm definitely not worried about them. Just glad I have some life growing in the tank to support a CUC.

My wife couldn't wait for me to get my new equipment on tuesday before adding fish. Picked up two tank bred ocellaris on saturday. They are looking good so far. Again only cell phone pics but I will take better shots when I get my stuff in on tuesday. My wife decided to name them as well. Jack and Rooster...

might help to open the rock work up more to create gaps. you can also create arches, islands, pilars, caves and such with the rock aswell but the openings will help with flow in the tank and also allow the fish to interact more in its enviroment.

i also strongly suggest the use of a QT for new fish as well.

Thanks for the ideas. I am really struggling with finding a scape that looks natural to me and also functional. I'm hoping for good usable coral space and still have something interesting to look at. I have more playing to do with the rock work.
