im long past the bloom, my tanks actually been ready for fish for atleast a month. patience is key.

i was actually looking at my tank not long ago and i cant believe the number of pods i have since the display tank has been fishless.

funds are, and will be alittle tight atleast until christmas but many things slow my progress of this tank. the lights i was going to purchase have been sold out for sometime now but i just may have found a better alternative. i think santa might bring me these.
any good fish store is atleast an hour and a half drive from me and i refuse to support a store that does not know what they are doing ( thats what keeps them in business )
im in no rush to fill my tank, im enjoying the slow process of things.

i picked up a fire cleaner shrimp.. i should have went with the skunk because they're more out in the open and i knew this but i wanted something in the tank that i wouldnt see every day and this was fitting.


fresh out of QT, 2 Allardi clowns

Female


Male


I wanted Ora Spotcinctus clowns for awhile but not long after i got the clarkiis i found these and had to have them. None of these pictures show their true detailed beauty but heres the best i got of the female


full sump shot


full tank shot


my current livestock is now:
x2 clarkii clowns ( sump )
x2 allardi clowns ( display )
x1 red fire shrimp
x3 sexy shrimp ( one has been missing since acclimation, so 2 )
bunch of different snails

Nice tank! Curious about that pond foam. Do you think it could be used to make rocks and can it be painted? Was thinking about trying to make cement rocks but it has to be soaked in water for about 10 weeks and it's really heavy.

thanks willow, i love these clowns..


KF7, the foam cannot make fake rocks unless you have something to attach it to or weight it down with as foam will float.
cement can be tricky. i suggest saving for qaulity rock and reading up while doing so. good flow to the rock along with a skimmer will be your tanks filtration, dont want to skimp there IMO..
you could always make a few pieces of cement rock for your base (read about methods) then use more pourus quality rock ontop but id prefer to use just all the good stuff myself. marcorock is some awesome rock with plenty of holes for micro life, might not hurt to look into that.

Thanks for the advise. I won't need the live rock and don't want to provide the current and lighting for it. I'll be using a Rena XP3 and a home made coil denitrator. I don't care for sump/skimmer setups. I really think making my own rock (cement or resin) will give me the best aesthetic options.
