I added some more rock and started to build it vertically, it's fun seeing all the hitch hikers on the rock, so far I've found some feather duster worms, some snails/slugs, and I think a brittle starfish. I can't wait to finish the rock up and add some more fish, but I have to be patient.
I am glad to hear that you are being patient. I always say, "Nothing good happens fast in an aquarium."

We are looking forward to pics!

Here is the latest pic that I have, I got very excited today when I briefly saw the brittle starfish on the rock. Poor thing only has 3 legs. He's getting along just fine though. I didn't know they could be so tiny.
