Thanks everybody! On Tuesday I was extremely close to purchasing more fish from liveaquaria. I had an Achilles Tang, Hippo Tang and a couple Emeral Crabs in my cart and right before I finalized the order I noticed the Achilles mysteriously disappeared from my shopping cart. Somebody snatched it up seconds before I got it. I ended up cancelling the entire order because the more fish you get the more the high shipping costs make sense. Next time it becomes available, hopefully I will be the fastest one.

Yes, I am signed up for that. That is how I knew they got the Achilles in stock, however it sold within minutes of being listed.

No, it has not picked at any of the corals or clam yet. It pigs out on PE Mysis and live blackworms. And best of all, just today I can finally say for the first time my tank is aiptasia free. I had a bad aiptasia problem and I just couldn't keep up with the Joes Juice anymore.

Next I am going to purchase a couple Emerald Crabs to help eliminate some of the bubble algae I have around my tank.

I have decided to switch my lighting from Ushio 10k to Radium 20k. I purchased the Radiums last night and I am anxiously awaiting for them to show up. I am looking forward to getting more of a blue color in my tank. Also the Ushio 10k inside of Lumenarc reflectors was very intense lighting. I had to be careful about putting coral directly underneath the reflector. It can be done but very slowly. I am expecting to get much better coral coloration with the new Radiums. Hopefully the growth does not slow down much, I don't want to have a 180-gallon frag tank forever.

The new lights are in (250w Radiums) and I added 5-fish and 2-emerald crabs.
3-Lyretail anthias
1-Blue Hippo Tang
1- Diamond watchmand goby

I still need to take picture of the new additions. I got all the the livestock above from liveaquaria with the Anthias coming from the Divers Den section. I recommend this company, they have high quality livestock and good customer service.

I will get some posted soon. My Goby is making a big mess with the sand and the tank is very cloudy because of it. I hope this will clear soon! I have also been afraid to clean the acrlylic with my magnet cleaner becaue of all the sand floating around from the goby. But I will get the best pictures I can. I wanted the goby to take the sand cleaning duties away from me, well he has done that to the extreme. I am getting very frustrated with the sand everywhere and I am having second thoughts about adding him. Fortunately, I hear this should all subside in a couple weeks. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
