I would LOVE to hang some from the ceiling, or make some kind of setup that they could hang via some cool DIY setup. But I have two cats.

I was just going to make a new hood just like the one I have right now & mount retro lights.

Yeah, me too. My concern is dog hair getting into the tank with it being open. I already have that issue, but it is manageable with it closed. I can't imagine the dust bunnies getting into the tank. Yikes! Arizona has plenty of dust, and it is hard to get rid of.

Yeah, or worse, a fried cat if they perched on top of the pendant and brough it down!

What about the coral list? Anyone think that some of those on the selection would give me issues? Something on there that might not be as "easy" to take care of as some people might think?

I'd wait awhile before adding the lps's (brain, torch, bubble) and the clams or anemone. Make sure you do a lot of research before adding any anemone's - they come with their own set of problems. Otherwise it's looks like a good list. Make sure to give everything enough room to grow without stinging neighbors. 8O

Oh... I won't be adding anything for a long while, no worries about that. I'm huge on research... maybe what I'm doing on all these forums.

The best experience I have gained regarding Anemone captivity is to have an established tank for about 6 months before adding any. I'm not a coral expert, so someone else can chime in on that one..I just know hardware/water condition requirements for them. 8)
