Glad I'm not the only one with OCD when it comes to fish tanks lol!

As for the water changing being late for 2 days, you should be fine. I've skipped water changes a few times by a week or more. Not the best idea, but just didn't have the time. You'll be fine by 2 days.

Thanks Rick, always feel better after getting your opinion. Enjoy your day! I'm headed to the saltwater fish store. Gonna see what kind of new corals they got. Supposedly they got some new exotic kinds from Australia. Probably a lot of money but it doesn't hurt to window shop... Or does it? lol.

My LFS gets corals for everywhere , and had told me more than once , the " Australia " thing is so they can raise the price as a " exotic " coral . He sells his australia the same as every other , and every other LFS is pissed cause he sells so cheep ( people drive 2-3 hours ) .

And really when you stop to think about it aren't all corals exotic ?

And yes window shopping dose hurt .... It leads to walking in to check for " new stock " .....and then the emptying of your wallet :-p

Aussie corals tend to be much hardier than the indonesian versions. Aussie corals also tend to come in rarer colors.
