The Chromis are fantastic. Just got a trio for my 76, and I love them. They are my first fish (finally...) and are VERY hardy.

I have them acclimating in my profile pic (in a glass bowl), and they move pretty quickly so I couldn't get a great pic that wasnt blurry in the tank. Plus I have a huge diatom problem, reefcleaners package coming today The fish are already eating frozen brine shrimp like crazy it's awesome. I'll post pics of them with the CUC later on this thread.

With the diamond goby make sure you have a good lid. They are jumper and will find any hole and get out. I have had two fish stick on me. Had a six line do the same thing. I am using a light defuser for a lid to help with evaporation and they made it threw the half inch holes.

I have a glass top but I was thinking of going to the paracube lens. I figured the 1/2" holes would be too small. Apparently, I need to rethink that. LOL Wonder if you put a screen under the paracube lens??? Of course, that would stop you from feeding through it but......
