You are most welcome, however, I am scared of this endorsement. There is not much that I agree with so far with what you have done. The grain size of your sand bed is not reef grade. The sand bed is not deep enough. The sump has a sponge filter pad, and no protein skimmer. The aquarium is not mature, has not finished its diatom bloom, and has almost no signs of life on the live rock and sand bed, yet you added a Coral Beauty Angelfish despite all this. You have also ignored my prior warnings about your stocking list, warnings that Wake has reinforced on this thread. (For the record, I agree word for word with what Wake has said.)
I have very limited time over the holidays to post on the forum. Unfortunately, if I am not able to directly speak here to the person who is making decisions (aka your mom), then I will have to spend my time on other threads. The message is simply not getting communicated.
A sincere good luck. But I am afraid you will not be successful because you are not the person who is making the important decision. Man, what a rough experience.
