I have been thinking about getting a carpet for quite some time however I don't think my tank could handle it at the present time... The concerns that I have had with carpets is Eating my fish, Moving around the aquarium and killing my corals, along with it dying... I have done alot of research and found that my current setup could support it however I think i need to get my chemistry straightened out first.. I was thinking about X-mas time the tank would be about 6 months old and chemistry should be good however I still have a problem with it eating my fish and corals... I will look and see if I can find any of the information that I have been reading about them lately..
