Alrighty... Just got back from the LFS, and y'all know what that means!!!

I only got a couple things because I'm waiting for group buy, but...

I got a heck of a deal on some xenia - (4) stalks for $15, and I got me a... Cleaner shrimp for $18. Not too bad - he's acclimating now - Pics to come shortly.

Here's the pics as promised:

@ Rob - My LFS is very nice, and the more you go there the better the discounts they give. Plus the girl is super cute!

Like I really need it to be any easier! Yup nothing better than a hottie that knows about SW.

So back from Meijer and Pet Supplies +, got (11) gallons of RO and three small rats for the python.

At least I didn't have to buy anything for the cat...

RO is now Saltwater and is being mixed / heated as we speak for a nice pwc tomorrow and some new rock scaping. Plus I wanna relook at where all my corals are ACTUALLY supposed to be, opposed to where I like them.

Well, I have finally decided that I am not happy with my corner style tank. The reason: Only one side is available for viewing and the majority of the time all of my fish, crabs, and shrimp are on the backside of the rockwork. Hmmm...

I'm pretty bummed about the cleaner shrimp, I am almost positive he setup shop directly in the back of the rocks. I can look through a cave and see his antenna poking out, and thats it.

Whoo hoo! Best $18 antennas I've ever bought!

I bought a pistol shrimp that I havent seen since the day I put him in the tank. It's been four months now and no sign of him. Well, other than that darn clicking noise.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah, and apparently has a taste for cleaner shrimp and peppermints. Lost 5 cleaners and 3 peppermints since putting him in there. I suspect it's him anyway.....lol

Yeah I remember reading about that... What a bummer deal.

I'm still trying to decide on my updated stock list. Since I've decided to go reef rather than FOWLR, I am very apprehensive about putting in another Flame Angel. I loved the look of the 1st one, but its almost a blessing he is gone. I would hate to see all my corals get nipped to death.

Same with the royal gramma - loved his coloring, but didn't realize how inactive they were.

So now, I'm trying to find a great "centerpiece" fish, and another colorful active swimmer.

I'm getting weary about my "pile of rocks" that I have invested so much time in. I love the corals, no doubt, but other than the sixline and the goby, its a ghost town.
