Thanks!

The upload server is still down. .

I set up a 10g tank a while back and I have another sitting here empty. I want to set that one up also but the lack of sand is killing me. Any other sand I can use in a tank? Live sand is killing my wallet xD

Finally pics!

Seems that i can't upload pics from my camera, even at reduced size. So im just using my cellphone camera once again.

This is the picture of what seems like a sponge.

This is the 10g that I have been running for a few months. All thats in there is snails and hermits. I want to get a pistol shrimp and goby combo in the coming months.

That's kind of a neat aquascape. It looks like a cave type area.

Hey everyone. Been a few weeks since I updated. Had a family emergency and ended up moving again.

Here's the 10g. Still nothing inside it.

This is what the 29g looks like atm. The rock on top on the left hand side is going to be moved into a lower area, when i get the chance.

Bristleworm! I have a few.

I collect shells at the beach and put them in the tanks for scenery. I have some in the 10g for my pistol shrimp to use whenever I get one.

Picked up a Pistol Shrimp from my LFS today. After acclimating and adding him to the tank he wasted no time at all finding a spot and burrowing. Saw him a few times grabbing some pellets and a few shells (so glad i collected at the beach).

I had given my second 29g to my aunt two months ago because my family were in love with fish. She is now looking to upgrade to a larger tank so I will be helping out with that and also getting my 29g back! I simply can't wait!

Glad your enjoying your pistol shrimp. No goby to go with him? Also, in your 29 gallon, you could probably move your Kenya tree down to the substrate. They dont need a ton of light. Just my .02

PS-things are looking good!

No Goby in stock.

I can totally move that Kenya tree once I removed a good chunk of rock. Substrate has zero room atm!

It's looking great. Haven't updated the thread in a while, been busy with work. When I get home tonight, if i remember I can take a pic and upload it. It is somewhat overstocked right now, current stocking is.

Two clownfish
One Orchid Dottyback
One Red head Goby
Three Zebra Dartfish
One Tangaroa Goby
One Pistol Shrimp
One Pincusion Urchin

I've also gotten a few coral. Names... Forgotten, though you should see them in the photo's. Probably need some IDed. xD

I won't be able to ID anything but I'll be glad to sit and look at your tank in jealousy
