Here's what I've concluded recently:

1) not all Macro is fit for a display, even if advertised as such.
2) when macro dies it becomes mush
3) Chromis like to eat said mush
4) what a mess
5) sponges grow everywhere - found a black / blue one under my trumpet
6) Chromis likes his new home
7) you can easily lose a 1" fish in a 29 gallon tank
8) anglers are ninjas
9) I have the patience of an empty hospital
10) I know need to research a better filter for a 10 gallon nano...

Here is my ever so feeble attempt at a marine planted nano / frag tank:

In case anyone is wondering - aside from the 10 seconds of adding sand yesterday - the entire scape / setup of the 10 gallon took me less then 5 minutes.

I actually think the planted area looks pretty cool, you don't see planted SW tanks too often.

Thanks - I also picked up a CUC for the cube, and a toadstool for it too. I'm heading home now.

Great!

I agree, Toadstools are nice, the one that I have has noticeably grown in the past few months, and I really like it.
