2x65 watt t5 pc 10000k/45nm. Stock rsm bulbs but using 65watts as opposed to the normal 55's

I just was not sure if the more expensive/rare zoas were harder to keep. I really want the dearth maul polyps as I love star wars and the color, but they are very expensive online. I really wanna see the orange ones my LFS listed.

Thats what i assumed. Just was not sure if the rare/ crazy colored zoas needed something stronger.

Glad to see a CUC do what they are supposed to do. I wish i ordered from Reef Cleaners from the start. I did get about 5 hermits. Which i may remove because I want to finally add coral. They are not blue or scarlet, but they have green legs with white dots. I asked reef cleaners and they say they are antillean hermits.

However since my cheato is not fully inclosed somwhere, snails have been making their way into the skimmer cup and I assume they are eating it. Jerks

Sweet two for the price of one! I already noticed another one too.

Thanks man. I could not have got this far without your help.

I'm going back to the LFS tomorrow as that said they have firefish and yellow watchman gobys coming in. I think I'm going to grab them both for the qt.

LFS guy was trying to get me to buy a small Xenia frag. I liked it but it seems there is a love/hate thing with it lol. I also need to move the mushrooms from my qt over.

Yay!
