You could do two 30 breeders and save yourself 20 gallons (167lbs)

*strokes chin* perhaps! My pup likes to sleep to the left of the tank and since I put the canister on that side she hasn't gone anywhere near it. Goofball.

Right now I've got a piece of zucchini in the tank as opposed to a shrimp. I have no idea number wise where I am in this cycle. Its been about two weeks. I've got a freshwater API master kit, but I'm seeing most people seem to prefer the red sea kit. Will the API one be okay for now?

I know my salinity is .024 using instant ocean

When I first glanced at this photo I thought that was a big screen tv, and was wondering how you were gonna fit the tank in on one of the sides of that!! Lol. Guess i gotta look closer at the photos!! I then realized that the "tv" was the tank!! Well, a tank is better than tv for some of us who are addicted to aquariums, right?

Teehee! My poor 32" tv is dwarfed by my all my tanks....

I'm concerned about the footprint for the sump. I was leaning towards the 40b for this reason. I'll hold off on getting two because I want to put my Christmas tree where the dog normally sleeps

My LFS has ordered three lemonpeel angels so that I can check them out... Apparently after I posted on their facebook page there was some interest in the fish. I won't be picking one up tomorrow; but, I do want to check out the quality and if they are eating. Tomorrow I will be picking up my rock. It is strange though, the salinity in my tank is not stable and keeps dropping.

Checked out the lemonades angels... They were 45. Is that reasonable.

Also I always take my dog in the store with me... When she gets frightened she poops. For whatever reason she was terrified today and dropped a huge load on their freshly mopped floor
