Here's my 75 gallon. Coming along. :-) Keep adding new stuff. Added 2 PJ Cardinals, that someone was selling on CL. I think I need to add one more to the school. Agree? Have pulsating Xenia on back wall, added a large cabbage leather. Gallaxia? frag and more zoas. Frogspawn is growing fast! See what else you can spot:lol:

Use super glue, but make sure you get the "gel" type. Just put some of the Xenia and attached to glass. I also put a piece on my overflow box. Hoping one day it covers the back area.

I bought the 2 PJ's from someone off CL, and the tank was being broken down. I couldn't see them well, because they were in a bucket. Later saw their tail fins were tore up a bit. I asked the person about that, and she said she really didn't know about it, but they chased each other all the time. I see they do sometimes chase, but don't nip. I also considered perhaps poor water quality in their last home. This is why I'm wondering if 3 is a better number to minimize this behavior. Sorry you lost one. Who would think these guys are at all aggressive!:shock:

I never would have dreamed I'd have a SW tank. I was "scared" of them. I still have my FW tank, but once the fish die, I'll probably get rid of it, or turn it into a SW.:-D SW is very addicting. I love the corals, almost more than the fish. It's expensive to set up, but in many ways it's easier than a FW tank. With my FW tanks, I do a water change every week, to keep my nitrates at 10ppm. My first SW tank, I had a HOB filter on, and was struggling with nitrates. Upgraded to another tank, which is drilled with a refugium and skimmer underneath, and bought more live rock. Definately get a drilled tank and stay away from filters that are just traps for nitrates. My tank has been running now for 7 weeks, and I've still not done a water change, and still have 0 nitrates. :-D Lovin' it!
