Sooo exciting week this is. I stumbled upon some exciting corals! My lfs was breaking down someone's tanks so there was some good stuff in the store.

I picked up some star polyps, a huge frogspawn, two teeny green toadstools, a small orange ricordia rock (i hardly ever see those in) and hopefully they'll have some interesting zoas today. Pretty exciting.

Already managed to frag some of the star polyps for the 10.

Pics when I get the others home today. They weren't priced yet when I was there yesterday

hey you dont have to drill purchase you a overflow box for your tank works just as great and easy to install these http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...m?pcatid=18358 are a great inexpensive brand use on myself on a 55 gal i got the smallest one they had for my 55. works great

I'm not fond of the bigger bows, they tend to distort pretty badly, and since I love taking pictures of my fish, it doesn't work too well. This one was supposed to be my fw tank and use my 55 for salt but once I put water in it, I decided I liked this bow. It's making the big frogspawn look awesome


Mollies are technically brackish. I had no idea either. Guppies and platys supposedly are too. With a little time they can be easily acclimated. I took the pair of black mollies and the dalmation that didn't hang out with the other two, and tried it. They're doing better than the ones in the fw. Kinda mindblowing isn't it?

They tend to fall under every category. Pretty amazing fish. It was strange enough to me that I had to try it.

Looks really nice, I'm considering an upgrade to an 80 bowfront. But I'm with spoonman on this one I'm dying to see it all finished up.
