Please Comment-Criticize-Ask

All pics are posting on the second page of this thread. Sorry.

I have only been in the Salt realm about a year and this is what i have so far. So the more comments - criticism - questions the more i will learn.

In my head i have sooooo many things i want to do to the tank - it is prob best if i make sure what i have now is right before continuing.

I will have pics of the sump - skimmer - return pump soon

Ya i have been looking at craigslist. In pet stores its at least 6-7 bucks a pound, and that gets expensive. On craigslist i find deals all the time for 2 bucks a pound.

The RBTA looks healthy. Your black and white clowns look really cool. Do they host it?

You do know that scooters usually need copepods to eat, right? or does yours eat prepared food?

Your tank doesn't seem to have a lot of live rock. I would get some more base rock, it looks pretty barren.

Other than that, it looks cool

GreenTurtle - Yea the clowns do host it.

I have been looking for some live rock - i don't mind paying for good stuff but have struggled finding a place. Any ideas?

The scooter goes crazy over brine shrimp - but i am fairly certain there are copapods in the tank, i will always see them when i rinse the socks.
