Hmm now that you say that it kind of bugs me looking at it. Hehe. I may have to do something about it.

Somebody local to me wants to trade me 2 long tentacle anemones with a maroon clown that hosts in both of them for that frag of whammin watermelons I have in my other thread. Kind of a lop sided trade in my favor but I think I'll put the maroon and 1 long tentacle in this tank and the other one in the 90 gallon to see if my false percs like it.

I like the size of the 40 enough that If I was starting over instead of my 90 I would probably do 2 40 breeders.

Had a trade offer locally I couldn't pass up yesterday. I traded a frag of watermelons I bought last week and realized I already had for a maroon clown and 2 long tentacled anemones that it's hosting in! Owner wanted to put a pair of percs in and needed to get rid of them. Works for me :)

do the Watchman goby and tiger pistol shrimp go hand and hand in the tank? It sounds like if you have one you should get the other so they can "hang" together?

They sure seem happy together in their house :)

A lot of people don't like the tiger pistols because they will move a serious amount of substrate around in the tank.

are they able to make the rock work move in that case ?
if you are going to house a pistol shrimp would it be a good idea to
lay egg crate on the bottom of the tank before arranging the rocks ?
thanks.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I would think the rocks could definitely collapse. I have 4-5 inches coarse aragonite in the tank instead of sand for them to build with. They have an area dug out probably 8 inches in diameter. I'd like to pick up the rock just to see what the tunnels look like but that would be mean ;)

I like the Bangaii Cardinal and the Clown and LTA. Great new additions. Did it take long for the Clown to host or was it already happening when you made the trade?

and watch what they do lol.
