Back on topic.

Research that starfish ok? Most stars are very specific in what they eat. Alot only eat wastes from the subastrate and rock work. A new tank won't be able to provide that. Also do note that the chocolate star is absolutely not reef safe. Any corals you add might be subject to be consumed.

When I first started salties I bought one cuz I that they looked cool. Much did I know I had to feed him pieces of shrimp just to leave my inverts, fish, and corals alone. They have been known to sneak up on smaller sleeping fish and eat them.

Haha...I just got done reading your thread under Saltwater Maintenance and while I read it was like " Argh I know i got her into this from me starting my own nano tank! " hahahaha But I guess its a good thing its one thing to another you know?that would we awesome if you did! Then we could like help eachother out and you know...lol 8)

I should have pics up in a few hours...so sit tight! I came home for lunch today and the tank looks great...Well not GREAT but its got all the basic stuff and everything looks like its thriving. The chocolate starfish is sooo awesome! I just love him! He's all over the place on the intake filter and on the glass...the snails...wow I dont know where people got that there slow because there reall not!

Brie I really do hope that you get started into it. I think your making it harder then it really is! It's pretty simple! But you may have more trouble if you start from scratch because about 5 gallons out of 10 of my tank came from my buddy's 150 gallon tank so i didnt have to cycle or nothing thats why I moved so quickly. Also planning on getting some lights so i can have coral by next week :D Cant wait to show you guys the tanks 8)

Sorry everyone! We went from china and back to find the right lights for my tank and I also got a fish called a Demsey. just got one little guy for starters. I DO HAVE THE PICS READY! So here they Are!

Full Tank Shot: It's hard to get one because its right behind my bed...

Shrimp:




3 striped Damsel


Feather-Duster:



Shot of a piece of Live Rock:

Star Fish: Official name is the Chocolate Chip Starfish




Thats all for now!
This tank moved along so quickly because of already established water from my buddy. It looks way better then I thought and it all takes time and money. The new lights are special lights that I know all salty tanks have. A need for growing coral and it brings out the good look. I'm pretty satisfied with it right now. I was tempted to buy an anemone at the LFS because I'm planning on getting a clown fish and they like that. But it was the kind that they wouldnt like because it stung to much. But hope you guys liked the pics and I want feedback!!!! :D :D

That's a real nice looking set up you have there. You were lucky to get the tank cycled so quickly. Any other plans besides the clown/anenome combination?
