    Lets see those clowns.

    Nice. I didn't like the black storms too much when I first saw the "press release" for them but they are growing on me.

    Nice looking clowns! Surely we can't be the only proud clown papa's and mama's. Come on folks. Lets see those clowns!

    Lets see those clowns.

    Figure these type of threads are always fun so... Here's a pair I've had for a while. Female is a "blacker ice" I got from John at Blue Ribbon Koi and the male is a "frostbite" I picked up at Tiki Corals in Richmond.

    Bulb for Cheato?

    I have one of those UFO lights like posted above from Ebay and they do work very well for growing cheato.

    Coral banded shrimp

    I've never had any trouble out of the ones I've kept. Even the pair I had for a few years were model citizens.
  7. The tank is coming along pretty well. I have added some corals, gorgonians, and inverts as well as have all of the fish besides a couple new additions in QT. The coralline algae is filling in nicely since the last shot. Once the coralline covers everything it won't matter but after installing some of this nice black background material I had to a future shrimp tank for my girlfriend today I'm kicking myself for not putting it on the display and frag tank.

    Sick fish, what is it?

    That looks like brooklynella to me also. It's pretty bad. I've had about a 50/50 success rate on treating fish with it in the past the rare times I've gotten it. It's the sole reason I have a QT tank now after years without one. I had some success using Rid Ich Plus initially followed up with metroplex. Honestly I could have just gotten lucky though. Good luck! http://chucksaddiction.thefishestate.net/disease.html

    Recommendation on ATO pump

    I bought a IceCap ATO from bulk reef supply for my current tank and I have to say I like it. No more float switches and the sensors are easy to clean.

    suitable algicide for live rock

    I have used this in the past when trying to get rid of dictoya. Worked great. https://www.apifishcare.com/product.php?id=609#.W4KXnHMpAwA

  12. Have everything done except building a frag rack, skinning the stand, and cleaning up. All the fish are out of the holding tank except for a yellow tang, six line wrasse, a peppermint shrimp and some snails and crabs. I want a couple of tangs and I want the others settled before I add the yellow to the display as he's a bit of a p#*!k. I'll slowly transfer the coral I want in the display over from the frag tank in a few weeks. Here's a few blue light shots I got while doing a water change and picking up.
  13. Finally happy with the rock. Placed a couple corals and gorgonians. Most will stay in frag tank until it goes through whatever sort of cycle it will go through. Had to add some more live rock and dry rock. Hoping to find a couple of pieces of branch rock somewhere but if not I'll be content I think with it as it is.
  14. Tank has been up and running for about a week. I still have some things to hook up but the necessities are all running. Photos coming soon.
  15. The last few pieces arrived today. This weekend if everything goes well I plan to get things together.
