Updates!

So! Found someone on my local reef site selling ALOT of rock for a low cost. Bought it all!
Here's my bedroom tank
Added alot of rock but I'm not to keen on the placement. Over the next few days I might be moving some rocks so it looks a bit more stable.

The left overs.

Of course my other tank has had a drastic makeover, but you guys can't see it for a few more weeks.

I took all the left over dry rock and live rock and put as much of it into water as i could. My fiancee came home last night and saw that huge piece of rock and wanted it in my tank in the living room so we played tetris til we found a good spot.

The tank in my living room is now a 29g marineland tank that we found on sale a few weeks ago and did the change. The stocking for it will be as follows:
Two Ocellaris Clownfish
One Sapphire Damselfish
One Blue/Green Reef Chromis
One Neon Goby
One Firefish Goby
One Orchid Dottyback

I have 40lbs of sand, a 495gph Circulation Pump, LED lighting. Originally I wanted to get a yellow headed jawfish, but I'm thnking of getting a pistol shrimp/goby combo.

Sounds good, can't wait to see some pics. Also, just googled saphire damsel. Very striking fish. Have you found it to be aggresive at all?

Reefing referred it to me when i was looking for peaceful Damsels. He's not aggressive at all. Keeps to himself for the most part!

Ghost Shrimp?

Like usual I've been trolling sites reading different forums and posts to learn as much as I can. It brought me to something I've never seen before.

Ghost Shrimp in a saltwater tank? Used for well food? I know that my Royal Gramma Basslet and my Orchid Dottyback (in different tanks mind you xD) would love to eat some tiny live shrimp (both have been nipping at hermit crabs so i know they want something with zest). Also I want to get a pistol shrimp/goby combo for my 29g in my living room and it seems pistol shrimp like to eat small shrimp.
