Green trachy not doing too good, dwarf angel picking at it. Working on getting a 30gal FOWLR going so I can move him to that.

I'm totally addicted to SW now! Everyday I'm off i have to fight the urge to go to lfs!! Lol

Thank you so much!! Yeah, I've spent WAY to much on this tank. A couple of times before my husband left for work he's said "stay away from fish stores." lol He likes it too though, was actually his idea at first, but has become my obsession.

LOL. Yea that's how it goes. Mine was actually quite affordable compared to most. My tank and stand were free and I made my own HOB refugium. So I guess I can't complain too much. Do you have a sump on your system?

I don't have a fuge or sump. Being a corner tank, space is pretty limited. I'm consider doing a HOB fuge, was just googling how to do that. I read in a post somewhere that it's possible to make a DIY fuge out of some of the HOB filters? Not quite sure what I would put in that, though or how that works. If anyone has any suggestions or info on that I would appreciate the help.
