Kevin,

You are correct about the leathers. Better not to have it an sps dominant tank of that size. I had to frag mine a few ago after my tank overheated and melted everything while I was in India. The main one grew back and is huge and the 5 frags are decent size now. I'm trying get rid of some to be replaced with more sps. I found a lfs in Dunellen that will take them on trade for some sps frags.

So, have you done your large PWC after the cycle? I'm pretty sure your tank is ready for some small bioload and snails and (snail killing) hermits won't be much of a load.

Yeah, i see what you mean cmor. That's mainly my whole reason for only wanting certain types of coral. As you can see, my tank isn't filled to the brim with LR, so i don't really have unlimited space for coral. This tank is also more aimed towards, zoas, rics, mushrooms, and SPS. Except for the duncan and the blastos i said i wanted. From what i've read, most of those coral are community. I know the blastos and the duncan have feeder tentacles that sting, but they won't be placed near any other coral. Am i correct in thinking those two LPS have stinging feeder tentacles?

And yeah, my cycle is over. I tested again about 10 minutes ago and i still have 0ppm of ammonia, 0ppm of nitrites, and 0-10ppm of nitrates. So i will be doing my large water change tonight, probably 45%, test water parameters again, and then if all seems well, im off to the LFS.

harmy, i do have nitrates, they're just very little because my ammonia only went up to 1ppm.. maybe higher if i missed the spike, and my nitrites went to 1ppm. So i never had extremely high readings of either one.

The Duncans tentcles are the ones you see all the time. They don't have any extra sweepers etc. Blastos on the other hand are similar to Lobos, Trachys and Scollys. They have short, stubby tentacles like Acans. These tend to come out at night. I don't know if these are particulary potent as they are too short to reach anything apart from what lands on or near the tentacles.

I got new stuff! Nice.

Check 'em out people.

Here's my new little buddy. For those of you that don't know, he's a yellow clown goby. REALLY small, and i'm a little worried he might get sucked in my overflow. Just hoping he doesn't venture near it. He's a little skinny too.. He doesn't look beat up or anything and i got to see him eat, so he should fair well in the tank. We'll see what happens though.






Here's my CUC. Pretty small since i don't have a ton of algae yet in my DT, just in the fuge. 2 Astreas and 3 random hermits.

Here's them acclimating:


Here's one of the hermits already going to work on my sandbed:

Haha thanks capj64! Haven't named him yet.. but yeah, i think he's gonna like those rocks too. A lot of places to hide and perch. For now he's just chillin on the sandbed on his belly.. but we'll see what he does in a day or so.

Nice pickups. You have plenty of room in the fuge!
