I have decided to keep the refugium in the sump. Have found a few surprises in the live rock lol. I have a couple hermits that apparently were hiding in the rocks and an emerald crab. I have added a pair of osilaris clowns one is the nemo looking orange and white the other is a black and white from another tank of mine. They have setteled in well. I got a Stary blenny some hermits and a couple turbos along with 2 peppermint shrimp from the LFS yesterday.

Dealing with daitoms. Uuggghhh I dont have issues with water changes will do them daily if needed but I hate the daitoms.
On a good note the stary blenny seems to like them he is munching them down. I was hopeing that sense this was a used set up I might avoid the daitom problems but I talked to the guy I bought it from and he told me the tank had been resealed not long before I got it. : face palm: on an up side it dont leak but new silicone new tank daitoms. Oh well it will be awsome once all the silicates work out

Havent posted for a few days. The new tank is doing great! It has had a couple hiccups and my being new to sumps I have had a couple problems getting that all worked out but I am really enjoying the much bigger area to work with. It still has some daitom issues but they are going away slowly but surly.

Any sugestions for fish I can stock? Its a 110 tall. It currently has a Stary Blenny and 2 clowns one regular orange and white the other black and white. They seem to be a pair stay together all the time they even sleep together. Hermit crabs and snails 2 turbos about 4 very small I think nurites its the ones the burry themselves in the sand the others was a variety from local salty shop.
I also have a rainbow colored folded brain coral a hammer coral and what I think is pink stary pollips and one devils hand leather. I also noticed yesterday that I have 3 pink sponges growing in there.
