I wish! But I replaced my 100 gallon with a 150 gallon! It's already drilled and it was $200. I pick it up on Thursday.

I spent $100 on my 55 with the stand and it's not drilled or anything. That's a good deal. Can't wait to see it come together.

Thanks! I'm super excited! The guy is really really nice. He gave me a bit of a price cut because I'm in college. He was so cool though! He is one of the pioneers of fish keeping. It was fun to talk to him.

I don't think a reef lobster could catch a shrimp. They are super slow. I think you are fine.

I think I'm might get one. The price was lowered to $29.99. I did add a coral beauty today. If I added it today or tomorrow would that be adding too much in too short a period, my parameters are pretty consistent. 0 ammonia 0 nitrites and 15-20 nitrates.

For more pricey inverts, I'd want to see the nitrates lower if it was my tank. I struggled to keep them for the longest time in my smaller tank because of them.

I agree. We went to the fish store to get one and they talked us out of it. We bought my boyfriend a 25 gallon tank though. I've brought him to the fish side and the salty side at the same time. Lol!!

Good to hear on both ends. I have made the bad choices through my career as well, like a snowflake in a 36 gal...too big for my own britches. It'll pay off in the long run. Keep at those nitrates.

I understand that! I bought a 55 one time thinking it was 100 gallons. Lol. Talk about newbie mistake. I am definitely working on the nitrates. That's why I'm insistent on having a sump on my 100 gallon build.

Snowflakes are so pretty. My lfs has had a lot of platinums lately. But I still can't bring myself to pay $60 for a black ocellaris, so snowflakes and platinums are a ways off for me. Lol.
