Would the reef octopus be compatible with larger tanks in case I upgrade in a years time. Also I need to know what I should be putting in the hob refugium. Bio balls, carbon?? Right now I have 3"sand bed, live rock and chaetau algea.

Thanks paddlefoot . I'll go with the octopus skimmer.
My friend gave me a dwarf midnight angel from his tank(35 gallon) as he had overstocked. Ive put him in a quarantine tank(10 gallon) for now. Would this fish be ok ? Would it be fine with corals(acans and zoanthids) ? Will it cause problems with clowns that I'll be putting in later?? How difficult is it to maintain this fish.
Thanks for your help guys

i wouldn't keep an angel in a 29. they are hit or miss with corals. some nip at them, and some do not. also, it may be territorial in such a small tank. later additions might get harassed.

Another silly question. When I do a 20% water change do I just take the water out from the top or hold the siphon near the sand(currently, I do it near the sand) :p??
Also, I'm. Getting a great deal on a carpet anemone. Should I buy it or is it too much of a pain to maintain it. It's a carpet anemone.
