Ok, I'm gonna try them out, If they seem to fight over the nem then I'll probably take them back and build up my corals. I'd like to get a long tentacle plate coral, elegance coral, Duncan, and frogspawn. Eventually some polyps and a mushroom.

When I got back into for my days off my nem was a little shriveled on the left side, I fed him mysis and turned off the
Lights (wife had them on for about 12hrs) and he seems ok now. Using powerhead method of coaxing him off the rock and onto the sand.

The Anemone seems to be doing a little better after the feeding the other night. I added 2 Clowns yesterday, 1 Black and white occ and 1 orange and white occ. They were bagged separately, I acclimated them in their separate bags, then after acclimation I added them to the same bag and continued acclimating for about 10 minutes. Then added both to the tank with one net. Since being added, They have been inseparable! Its very exciting, Next I'd like to get my corals going, maybe adding 1-2 every other week. I reaquascaped and put the rock the anemone was on, Onto the ground so If he prefers sand he can remove himself from the rock safely. Pics coming later today!

Here are some pics off my iPhone. I'd like to capture a nice video to show my progress. I'm very excited to see where this tank goes, and Especially excited about the new lighting I'm ordering tomorrow. Doing a 5g water change in the morning. My two clowns have already had a nice meal of Mysis shrimp. They are doing well together, the littler orange one follows the black one around like a shadow. I had intended on getting a pure black/white one but this was a local fish that I could get with no hassle or complications due to my work schedule. The only thing that I'm curious about is that they stay in the front of the tank, They havent wondered through the rockwork or to the back of the tank. Is that normal? Once I move out of this apartment I'm gonna get a 90 gallon tank and probably use this tank as a breeder for the clowns or something.. maybe use it for my frags, not sure yet but I will make good use of it. Here are just a few pics, More to come tomorrow.

Yes its normal for CLowns to hang out in one spot. Once they pick up on the Anemone, they will not stray far from it. They are not a full tank swimmer.

They've started exploring the back of the tank now. I'm leaving to get water for my 5g water change, and going to add a blood fire shrimp as well. need some shells for my hermits.

I talked to a more knowledgable lfs today and they said I really didn't need led lighting at this point. The anemone, based on the scientific name is a purple tip lta. I instead bought a nice torch coral and a mj1200. I'm doing my water change in the morning and adding the mj1200. Torch coral is doing well so far *fingers crossed*

I had a mis-hap today that I'd like to mention. Well the two clowns have been doing good together since introduced to my tank, but regrettably today the b/w passed away. I had my water tested and all was good. I'm not sure what it was, I bought them at Petco so maybe that was the problem. I purchased another b/w today but NOT from Petco. The lfs I used to go through had one so I bought him but their prices are quite outrageous so I think I'll be keeping my hard earned money away from them. 59$ for a hydor koralia nano 225?! The other lfs is much more helpful and prices are lower so I'm happy to have found a lfs that I can go in and feel good about the info I've received. Pics will be up after my water change. I have a fire shrimp on the way as well, and possibly another lps coral
