Bristle Worms will come and go, depending on the nutrient build up for them to feed off of.

Update on the 29g

Haven't really gotten much of an update for the 50g but the 29g is looking strong. I'm seeing green hair algae starting back up from when I had first gotten the live rock. I also have purple coraline that hasn't really been spreading.

I fell in love with a pygmy angelfish the other day. I think he is my next buy.

Removing the top trim?

I've seen alot of postings of people removing the top trim of their tanks. Any reasoning for that? Is it for the lighting?

The top rim? They are crazy. Its there to help keep the tank together. Its an integral part of the tank. If its removed you need to Eurobrace the tank., or it will come apart from stress.
