Thanks Kate.

Some small updates. I took the cup out with the zoas ad just rubberbanded the three frags to that rock and put them in the lower right corner. GSP is doing fantastic; they get bigger everyday and turn a bit greener everyday too. Zoas were worrying me for a day afte I moved them, but they look good now. Pipe coral is doing ok. I plan to make a stop to my LFS so I can buy some Calcium dosing thing and a calcium test kit. I *want* to get a Short-tentacled Plate Coral (most likely green, if not, then orange), and maybe a fish very, very soon. I realy want to get a Black-cap basslet, but I really want a pair of clowns. Any ideas?

sounds like its going good cody, and you could get the clowns if they were small and you were definatly dedicated to moving up because they can get kinda big

Any updates on the refugium?? is it up and running yet or not?

Too bad about that caulerpa possibly becoming a nuisance, because I really like the way it looks. Corals look great and all, but the one thing I really miss looking at even the best reef tanks is some sort of greenery.

I just need to get glass cut and a 4x4 cut in two (so basically 8x4), if not a 6x4 to raise it to the same height as the tank. Then to silicone and then chateo.

Hey Cody, you should post those FW pictures in a FW beginner thread. A lot can be learned from the simplicity of a sponge filter! Beautiful tanks... filtered exclusively with sponges.

I bought a Peppermint Shrimp today! Doing a lot better than the Skunk so far. Busy checking out the tank. I will try to get some pics of him.

I also ordered my Occleraris Clownfish (2) today from They should be here around Tuesday.
