Dylan... thats great!! I'm happy for you that you'll be able to get it going soon!!

Lainey.... LOL! I'm not sure what it converts to in pounds or euros, but new those beds are close to $300 here... I got it used off Craigslist for $125 and it was in PERFECT condition!

Oooo.... New vids from this evening! It was frozen shrimp for dinner! And yes, that's Toy Story playing in the background, and my kiddos banging something and laughing, LOL. In the 2nd one my 18m old walks up and starts saying "phishie!"

Thanks!! :D Will do!!

As you can see my goby is eating well... it took him a week or so to get acclimated and warm up to the food I was offering. But now he's chowing down, especially on frozen shrimp night, LOL. (I alternate Marine Cuisine frozen enriched shrimp cubes and New Life Spectrum small fish formula pellets... new life spectrum link ... I know it really looked like a lot of food was floating around in there but it was actually only a 1/2 cube.

Another cool thing.... I definitely think my Clowns are going to be a mated pair... they get along really well, and I am actually starting to see an easily recognizable size difference! I see the smaller one taking submissive postures and the big one poking him in the side, just like I've read about what the males and females do! So awesome watching this develop and take place!!!!

So... since some of my fish are considered Omnivores... should I offer them a veggie clip with some seaweed or algae now and then as well??

Aww thanks!! :)
I know everyone says not to use the flash... but since my lighting is still wayyyy sub-par in the display tank, my pics have been coming out much nicer with it.

Yesterday, I got a powerhead for my 10g. It had several dead spots in the tank that were getting really nasty. Its helping a lot.

Got another same nano powerhead for my sump to help with circulation, and to help keep the air sucked out of the overflow. Man is it ever helping!!!!!!! Got another 6 lbs of rock. They are nice, fancy looking pieces! I'll have to take another pic tonight, but to be honest I would imagine they are not going to stay where they are after I get a couple more small pieces. I think I'm still 3 lbs short of 65 now anyways

I can't remember if I mentioned this already or not.... but the one white piece of rock that is in the front of the tank... it looks like a colony of small Zoas... my hubby actually got that rock off the ocean floor snorkeling when we went on a cruise in the Carribean off Coco Cay. It was put up in a closet with a giant conch shell we got off Nassau... well we gave it a rinse and it's been in there a while... it should be live rock by now! (a while = a few wks)
