Half way threw and I was in a hurry.

The Next Morning

Everything was kind of scattered around but it clear up very nicely. I was very Lucky I did not lose a fish or Coral. It was a 4 1/2 hr transfer so I got basically everything over in a hurry Used the old water as well as old Sand did not clean it or anything. The tank that I pick up from a Local Reefer gave me some Sand left over from his system. I wash that out cause it was sitting for a few days. The sand from my system I emptied the water all the way to the bottom scoop out the sand and put it on top. That way there would be little or minimal of a ammonia spike. I saw it as all the good bacteria still sitting in the LR and sand should be fine. But anyhow here are more pictures I took yesteday.

Full Tank Shot

Hope you like...

Well the petland around here HAD one. I figured I'm getting a 75 in a month so I picked her up. She is eating brine and is starting to fatten up thankfully. :p I would ship it to you.......but my mom would kill me for it (her favorite fish).

They have a female striped mandarin I think, hard to tell fins aren't fully extended.

Ill have to check it out next time I am in rockford, there are a few good stores in rockford and the closely surrounding area, I forget what street it was on but I used to get some exotic reptiles from them and they had a ton of neat fish but alas I didnt keep fish at the time.

Where, I have checked out quite a few like terri's aqualand pet center and found them to be kind of sad.

Sorry to kind of take over the thread Tank, I'm just curious as I have been shopping at chain stores forever.
