Those are so cool. I haven't yet made the leap into saltwater tanks. It just seems too complicated for me. So congrats. Do you plan on adding more fish?

No, it's only 10 gallons. I dont skim so i have to keep the bioload small and thr water changes frequent. Im hoping that my clown will host the duncan sooner or later. It'd be cool to watch him sleep in it lol. Saltwater really isnt much more complicated than freshwater but it is way way more expensive.

Here the duncan is fully extended.

Ahh. Yeah the extra costs mean I'm not entirely up for it quite yet. :P Plus, I already have about 5 tanks in my room and really no room for anymore. If your clownfish ever starts sleeping in the duncan, I'd definitely love to see a picture. Do you know exactly what kind of clownfish you have? It looks similar to some sold near me that I believe they sell as "Emo clownfish"

Percy is a black Ocellaris clown. Also known as a black false percula clown.
