Nice coral pics. Is the ID check for us? If so then I would say for the most part you are right on with these corals IDs.And those Blastos will look really good once they fill in.

Cool New fish

After getting "Momma the terrible" I decided to try to get some more fish. Even though warned not to, I could not resist the ich (itch haha) for fish. So I bought a yellow tang baby and Blue Eye Royal Dottyback. Momma has been beating up on my Green Reef Chromis for a while now, and it's about time i called in reinforcements. The Dottyback went in easily. Hid for a bit, but is not establishing his territory on the lower front/ right side of the tank. Baring his jaws as i approach him with my camera. The tang (much like my past one) has a temper. Momma tried to attack him and he fought back. Now he continuously chasing momma and her boo away, but leaving the chromis and dottyback alone. He knows her temper.

Soo about a 2-3 weeks ago I added a yellow tang and bicolor dottyback. Perfect to combat mean old momma. Here are pictures. The chromis is getting harrassed a lot lately by momma so I am going to sell him back to the store. Here they are!

SW. Well life is booming; Tubeworms, snails, starfish, orange tip anemone, etc. good becauseThe Tank Is Doing good. bad Because The TubeWorms are super Populated And nasty to look at. i Returned The chromis. He was getting abused so i Didn't Want Him To Suffer. No New Buys, but The Male Clownfish JumpedIn The Filter. He Gets PickedOn By The dottybackAnd momma. Other Than That They Have a DietOf brine And mysis Shrimp, Seaweed, And pellets.
FW: i got a boom Of Malaysian Trumpet Snails. NotToo bad Though. EverybodyIsFine. But Algae (green) Is Growing. Th plants also have a dark green fuzz growing on them and some of the plant's leaves are dying. The Reason Why The Algae Is Because a Leaf Got In The FilterAndIts just a crappy filter That Came WithThe Tank (grreat Choice 10g). So TryingTo ControlThat....

Only a week later I know, but I want more coral. All the inhabitants are perfect, i just need more snails and hermits when i go next time. But i want to add a hard coral, can I in the dead center. Here are pics today of the tank. If anyone can give me specific names (scientific or regular like red sea fan (gorgonian)) instead of the general names I would love that!



Alveopora

A while since I updated this so here it goes.
SW:
Ughhh I am a bad person...I added the Coral Beauty to the current stock. However I am one step closer to upgrading. This fall in September...Algae is a big problem, but it does not seem to effect the fish which is great. I also added what appears to be a Sebae anemone. I am aware of aggression and size, it too will be moved in the upgrade. Other than that the inhabitants are great and I am booming with hitchhikers including bunches of snails and stars (sadly), yellow sponges (aka spongebob), bristle worms, fireworms, tubeworms, these anemone looking creatures, and my least favorite a crab. Small, has been there since last fall so I allow him to stay until I can catch him. My 2.5 with the Xanthid crab was at 1.037 sallinity. Yikes. I brought it down to 1.030 luckily. He/She is great as well. I also plan to get seachem purigen and and matrix for my nanocube, any reviews on them>?
FW:
I have a 5 gallon split betta tank with filter (no heater) with Alpha and Gamma. The water is great with the nitrate at 20 ppm, which isn't horrible. I have a 1 gallon betta bowl with my female, Delta. She is literally fat (her stomach bulges) because I feed her a lot. But non of it goes to waste so whatever. UGH the worst thing. My ten gallon has had 4 casualties in the past week. My danio jumped in the filter killing it. So I added a swordtail to replace it. 4 or 5 days later it died and a few hours later so did my nephew's betta, Gordo. I went to the pet expo today (won a new betta for the 10 gallon, Epsilon) and come home to find a panda corydora hardly alive (floating but moving if i poked him.) So i was like, "something is wrong". Come to find out my nitrate is 160 ppm. IMMEDIATE water change. The betta is *currently flaring and chasing my tiger barb, a good sign. Ugh. Any advice other than daily water changes for a week? Thanks.
