I got all these from local reefers. Local reef clubs are awesome for meeting great people.

Looking great!
Just an idea, maybe stack to rocks until is close to the surface, making look like a rockpool?

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

That was my original plan, but I didnt want to stack corals on each other, plus I wanted my Pistol Shrimp to have ample room to burrow.

Bad news.

So here's the update.

Lost a few things recently. My new Harptail Blenny and some of my CuC is gone. I didn't know why. I hadn't done anything wrong that I knew of.

Then the news came in on what happened. My roommate decided to use one of my water change bucket for bleach, soap and water to clean the floors.

Yep. So that's the current update.

LAME!!!

It's really hard to relay the feelings, and contain the anger ,when some one has little knowledge about how much effort is behind these aquariums and how much they mean to us.But what can you do but inform the ignorant.

Let us know if there is some thing we can help with, I can send you some asternia stars,brittle stars,copopods,stomatela snails,and maybe a limpit or two to help get your clean up crew back in order.Maybe your local club could help with that too.

Thanks so much. I'm going to do some work on Sunday in the tank. Take everything out and get a headcount and then head to a LFS and pick some stuff up for the tank.

Cool Beans! If they have some banded trochus snails snag a couple, I have had some success having them breed in my tanks and wanted to pass that along.
