Having a diatom bloom under where the light is in the middle of the tank.

Phosban reactor online, phosphates DOWN!! Woot!

All the fish are 100% great. Naso is back to his old self, eating like a pig and chasing me back and forth if I walk next to the tank.

You can sort-of see the diatom bloom in the middle of the tank in these pix:

Thanks :) I bet I will have another mini-bloom when I can finally move the other light over from the 65g.

UN-patiently waiting to move the rest of the rock, corals, and clams over. Ugh!
I must be patient...I must be patient...I must be patient!!!

When I first set up my 65g, I had LOTS of patience. But I now have not one, not two, but THREE tanks in my living room. Two are staying (my predator tank and the new 125) but the 65 needs to GO! LOL! Its sitting right in front of the front door and in the way of the bar we sit at to eat all the time. That's really the only reason I'm feeling impatient. I learned my lesson about being patient with my first 10g salt tank and my 55g planted freshwater. But its really eating at me to have this tank done with all my stuff in it!!!

ahhaha thats too funny. But thats awesome that you have three tanks. I am only in college so i'm only allowed a small 20g but im excited to start saltwater :). And when im older i plan on having a few tanks myself. I will remember this as a good patience lesson though lol

Please do... because lets just say those two lessons came about from MASSIVE casualties. Ehhh.... :/

Finally got my other pygmy Angel in this eve, the Rusty. Threw in a Kenya tree and a tiny clip of GSP to see how they fare...

YUM YUM! Nori time! (the big Naso rips it off, shakes it like a dog, and both Tangs will chase it around the tank. Hilarious!)

By showing me these beautiful pictures of your tank, its making my patience level go down for starting my own saltwater tank :). Im supposed to start it around christmas, but at this rate with the constant pictures it will be around next week :)
