Nothing new yet. But how often should I be feeding my shark? Right now its twice a week with silversides and raw shrimp and I'm picking up some mussels on the half shell today at the store to see how that goes. Is that enough or should i feed more frequently??

Triggers usually aren't compatible with sharks make sure they are nipping the sharks fins..

Well I had my male blue jaw trigger in the 125 with the shark for about 2 months or so...but out of nowhere he all of a sudden died on me about 2 or 3 weeks ago. So that was a bummer...and I think I may have given up the idea of any triggers at all. Although I am still interested in the sargassum. Iv heard mixed stories about him so I dk yet.

Cool shark! How are you going to arrange your rock? In tall columns perhaps?

No that's how I did my 125. This time I think I'm gonna try some Plexiglas shelves reinforced with triangles and silicon them to the back wall. Then drill small holes through the shelves and the rock and use zip ties to secure rocks to them. It will hopefully look like a floating shelf all the way across the tank with a couple spots reaching the bottom of the tank for a little extra support in the middle. I may use a couple towers too like my 125. Just depends on how far my LR goes considering my tank is 8 ft long.

On a side note I finally got some pictures of the new tank. I also just finished my first coat of black paint for the background so I snapped some pics of that too. Gotta wait another 30 mins or so until I start applying the second coat. Its coming along tho!! Still unsure about what color to stain it as well. Any suggestions to go along with my black background??
