Yeah I did an hour and a half of my "drip method" where I poor in water every 15 minutes. I am a bit paranoid I guess. The fish are pricey and I don't want to harm any creatures. Anyway, she looks nice and has already made a friend.

The drip method refers to the process of using a piece of airline tubing to siphon tank water into your newly purchased fishes bag. I tie a loose knot it in so it literally drips into the bag, usually a drip a second. Not saying your method is wrong, I have just heard a few people call it a drip method when that is not the case.

Yeah, I know that is the drip method but I don't know what this is called. It has worked for me this far.

Well good news today, she is eating and there is no aggression in the tank. Now I just hope the two pair up, I have wanted to try this since I started my tank. I think a pair of clowns of different colors is cool. Has anyone had any luck with this?

As long as they are the same species of clown there won't be a problem. I had 2 black and white clowns in my 55 and an orange in my 36. When the smaller b&w died, I replaced it with the orange. It can be hit miss with pairing, but making sure your new one is smaller will help.

Haha, well as you can see in the picture my new one is about twice the size as my existing clown. The old one was still really small but they seem to be getting along fine. I hope it works, it's good to hear it works from more people.

If they are that close without issue then you are one step ahead.

I just ordered an led kit from rapidled.com. It is the first of my upgrade, I am going to put half of it over my 29 while I finish the rest of my 90 setup. I am super excited to finally have enough lighting for anything I want. I am working on my controller so I will be ready when my lights arrive.

I know you have already ordered, but I added a 48" blue led bar from Reef Brite. Wow, what a difference. I think you'll be very happy.
