lol I feel the same about the 150g I'm picking up Sunday. I've ordered powerheads, t5 lights, 16oz Dr Tims one and only (It actually works!!! But only if you buy more than twice the recommended amount), and now I'll order the sand.

Get an overflow from glass-holes I'm going to drill my 150g so I don't have to worry about my siphon breaking. And that horrid gurlgling. Anywho I finished my new aquascape and added a couple coral; an 6-8" leather Toadstool and 2 5-6" Kenya tree. I got low light coral since I still have a 2 bulb t5ho. Also the ph I have are craaazzy strong. One blows the sand in the air while the other flows the sand back down lol. I hope my coral open up though

Here are the pics.... The coral also opened up about half way and the water is a bit more clear. In a week I'll add another large Toadstool leather and a long tentacle leather.

OMG my domino damsel has hosted....................... MY HATIAN ANEMONE!!! I was surprised at first and thought he was being eaten but I tapped the glass and he darted away then came back to it a few seconds later. He did this 3 times!
First pic is him running away after I tap the glass
