Wow, sorry to hear about the clam. I hope the next one does better.

Thanks guys. It always really frustrates me to lose things.

That sucks about your clam. The tank looks good though. Can you take a picture of the canopy from the outside? How is the heat distribution from the mh within the canopy? Do you need to run a fan?

I'll try to snap a picture or two of it. Heat isn't really a problem. The top is almost entirely open so the heat rises out of it with out much problem.

well it has been a while since i posted anything new. I have been super lazy about taking pictures and such. I have a couple new coral to show off as soon as i get some good pictures. I am hoping to get a tripod for christmas so i will be looking to play with my camera once i get that. I also owe some pictures of my canopy. Sorry

I'm not sure anyone will have experience but i thought i would throw it out there. I am thinking about getting a pair of banded pipe fish. I have read everything i can find on them but that isn't a whole lot since they are a hard to keep species. All of my current fish are very docile and so are the ones i plan on adding so i don't think that will be a problem. If i get them i plan to try and train them onto prepaired foods from live brine like people have done with mandarins. I have a 10 gal QT that i will use while i am working on that so there is nothing else to bother them. Let me know if you guys have any advice or experience.

I wouldn't do it. I'm not 100% on pipefish but with seahorses it wasn't putting them with agressive/docile fish that mattered. They had to be with docile fish more then anything because just the speed and quickness is enough to startle and stress them. Not to mention that the anthias will surely out compete them for food.

I agree with Jimbo also will mention that the flow you have in your reef will probably be a bit much for them. They are better in a species tank rather than a mixed reef.

When you put up a seahorse tank you can add the pipe fish. Both like the same conditions. Until then, just keep up the good work.
I'm ready for my frags
