I messed up when I read the description originally, I thought the large size was the maximum size. I'll keep him till he gets too big, maybe he'll be easier to catch... He is pretty though, I hope he comes out a bit more when he gets comfy. Here's a before and after of the tank:

is that triangle shaped rock glued in place if not wait till that maroon clown gets bigger
he will knock it over or just out right haul it across the tank or even break the glass

I know this cause my clarkie does it he moves rocks 4X his size with no problem he is like the incredible hulk
don't be surprised when you put something where you want it and the next morn its on the total opposite side now I put things where I don't want them cause he puts them where he wants most of the time right where I was going to put it lol
he drives me nuts

Yeah that rock is really cool, I think I've got some time before 'Helen' can move that rock. Even so, I'll be moving things around again, Although I really do like the layout I've got right now. I'm planning on putting a nem in, of course I'd like it to stay on the right side but who knows, now it's time to sit back watch and let things happen. I have found some really cool corals, there is at least one or ten more I want to get.

How can I maintain algae in my sump? So it will stay out of my display tank? My sump is only a 30 gallon tank with the outtake and sock nd protein slimmer return pump nd heaters no dividing glasses is it possible to maintain algae down there or will it grow all over the place?

It will not go all over the place unless it hits the return pump. I would want a partition in that sump though. Hypothetically, what if the algae blows over to the return and clogs it when you are not home?

Found my juvenile Golden Stripe stuck to the HOB filter intake this morning. I'd noticed he hadn't really been eating but I'd only had him a short time. I'm bummed!

RIP Tommy
