All the fish at my stores are young. That's how most tank busters are sold.

That's how most stores are. You'll find the locally owned ones will have a higher likely hood of having larger fish.

Ok back on topic. That is a cool relationship between the two. The coco really doesn't mind? How large is the tank? I'd hold off on a nem if adding one piece of LR created a parameter spike.

I hope you mean T5's. And LED's are far from fancy junk, they are powerful and the most efficient aquarium lighting there is, not sure why your knocking it.

Also to the OP the Marineland LED are poorly made and do not have the power needed for corals/nems with high lighting needs. Many bad reviews on them if you care to read them.

+1 ^^^^. Fancy junk? Some are as powerful as a 250w halide with relatively no energy consumption and heat. That's pretty good if you ask me.

It has gotten used to her I guess because it just stays out waving in the current. I want to do an anemone asap as I am worried that my clown is causing stress or something and I'd hate to have it lose a crown when I can do something about it. And It wasn't just a piece it was about 20 lbs. I got the whole set up from my brother who had it for years and he didn't have any live rock at all so I'm playing catch up hence the spike.
