I feel like I've been building a mansion, and having the finest decoraters come in to decorate only for the house to be foreclosed, and now I have squatters living there!

HAHAHA

I have like a half dozen fish in my 125 and rarely see any of them. The yellow tang is usually the only one. The blenny and goby are nowhere to be found usually, the clowns hang out in the BACK right TOP corner only and the blue tang runs away when I get near the tank. I really need some swimming fish in there. hehe the cleaners were cool cause they hung out in the front.

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

Be careful what you wish for. My banded coral shrimp has become huge and is now the leading suspect in a series of serial murders of fire fish. I use to not be able to keep them, now it is their revenge with the Terminator of all shrimp. Catching him is a pipe dream, he is far too crafty. I just need bigger fish.

Greg - I read about that in your posts as well... Seems we have quite the mystery of Invert murders on our hands. Don't think it'd make it as a TV show, but seeing all that they have on now, one of you guys may want to pitch it! LOL

My fish deaths are still unexplained, (and thankfully have stopped) but I can just about 100% bet that my hermits are not the culprit...

I think the hardest part is going to Youtube for inspiration. There are countess videos of 54 gallon corner tank reefs, 55 gallon, 58 gallon, 70 and 75 gallon reefs, and guess what the "Centerpiece" is in every single video I watched...

...Yup a freaking Blue Tang!!!

Sooo... got up this morning and did a pwc, (9) gallons to be exact. Siphoned like crazy, removed and cleaned the PH's, rearranged the rock scape, again, let the new cleaner shrimp clean my hand for a minute, cleaned the sump, moved the corals, and now I'm heading to lunch.

Pics when it settles.

My lawnmower blenny usually sits on the rock and smiles but when I walk up to the tank he swims up and says hi, nips a bit on the algae and glass and is generally active! Yes he's gray and might look boring but even my cichlids aren't that active and entertaining.

Greg, I envy that it takes you (40) gallons, I would love to need that much!

Aus, that's awesome, I do like the look of those as well. Carey has a chubby one too
