Got a lot of my stuff in the other day. I haven't hooked anything up yet. Still waiting on the new drivers for the LEDs. The ALC with the moonlinghts, my HUB, aqua lifter and a few other items are ready to be installed.

The fish and corals are looking great. I picked up a Green Slimer today...it's opened up and looking nice.

Oh yeah and I got a pair of black and white clowns....

So some pics....

The clowns are still so young that they are orange and white though you can see on the larger of the two that the fins are starting to turn black. Eventually they will be completely black and white....







The Green Slimer I picked up for free when I got the clowns...


The polyps opened up within 30 minutes of putting the coral in the tank. This is just temporary as I will be mounting the coral at some point...

The Goni is looking great too..



That's all for now. Eventually over the next couple days I will install all the new equipment that has arrived...

I offered to pay for it. The guy I bought the clowns from wouldn't take any money for it.

What did you use to get your background so black? Ive used a black background from Petco as well as painted mine and they always seem to look grey when looking at the tank from the front. Any suggestions?
