Here's the new Longnose Hawkfish! (along with some more good shots of the tank!)
The new Court Jester Goby has already turned in for the night... he seems to go to bed kind of early. :)

Amazing!!! Now i have a question....will your rocks get more colorful and..I guess..full of life? are there different types of rock?? I dont know much about salt water tanks, maybe u can educate me a little bit!!! :))

Its a Jebo 182 II. Yeah I did a bunch of research on it... I found out from a really massively long thread on reefcentral that it can be made to whoop protein skimmers that cost 4x what I paid for it with a tiny bit of modding, so a little modding is definitely worth the difference in price!!!!! Its just a little bit more than what I paid for the nano skimmer for my 10g! :D

Britny - thanks!! I got the rock from a couple different stores/places, so they look different because some came from Fiji, some from Tonga... eventually they will all be covered in that purpley Coraline algae, it will help them look the same. All the new pieces really stick out, but some of the older ones used to be like that too! Live rock from different places can be totally different, from the color to the density. But yeah, they will eventually be fully of life too!

BWF - thanks!!!!

Kitten - thanks!! I think I am going to have to upgrade to a larger one once I get my anemone and a few corals, but we'll see how it does.
