Cool!
Chaeto is easy to get started and will populate your tank as long as your fish don't eat the copepods.

Be careful with the chaulerpa. When it begins to multiply it will cloud up your tank. They will release spores all at once and make a mess of things.

The shaving brushes are nice but if you have sea urchins they will eat them.

That's a lot of algae.


are a group of small crustaceans

I'll be upgrading my tank in a few months. 55 galling just isn't enough for me. I plan on getting a 6 ft 120 or something larger as long as it doesn't take up more the 6 ft length

I hope you live on the Coast.
It's a real pain to find any decent saltwater fish living in the mid west where I live now.
I spent many years on the East coast and the West coast and I guess I am spoiled.

I live in Missouri as well. That's why I am doing freshwater. I have searched all around for a decent fish shop and there is nothing so far.
I have not tried Jefferson city yet though. That's about 45 minutes from here.

Yea I lie in Springfield. There's only two places to go around here. One of them is petwarehouse and a place called the aquarium shop. They will do special orders though

I went to petco yesterday in washington mo and they had a worse selection than walmart. They didnt have any saltwater supplies at all. the other one I went to in rolla (Bowels aquarium) had a nice selection but they were all diseased. I wasnt going to put any of that junk into my tank. I am still looking for a place to buy some plants. I need a good ground cover still.

I love Craigslist. I want something that's predrilled. My next tank is getting done right. My levels are below 5ppm. So that big water change seems like it helped so far
