A little update here. Unfortunately, the midas jumped I think my wife was more upset than I was. I'll make a screen top and get another one soon.


I did get a black clown, and a pink spotted watchman. He's a blast. The kids call him "scooter" because of how he swims along the bottom.


I added a Reef Octopus 110SSS skimmer in the sump, and HOLY MOLY does that thing kick all sorts of butt. Well worth every single penny and then some.


I'm waiting on a nice rose BTA from the LFS, and then we'll see what else I can stick in the tank. I don't want to overload it, so I'm being super picky about what I'm putting in there. I'd like to find something (non-sessile) that can go in the overflow box. It's clear acrylic, though some coralline is starting to grow on it. It would be cool to make use of the space in there, too, but without reducing the flow.

That's too bad. I had one jump out when cleaning the tank and didn't notice until too late.
The one I have now bangs around against the top at least a few times a week,
a cover is an absolute must for these guys.


I put a piece of barnacle in there right near the front of the tank and sure enough he calls it home now, so I always get a show whenever I go near the tank....LOL

Yeah, I was bummed. He was beautiful, and a complete goofball the way he would swim all over the place. It was great to watch him. My project for this weekend is a screen top.

I'll have to make sure my wife sees these comment haha. She OK'ed the purchase (actually "forced" me to buy it), but was leery that it wouldn't look the same in person. Thanks for the compliments

Wow, that is quite the specimen. That would get me into anemone again. What kind is it? Never seen pink before.
