also what you can do is just get regular mysis or brine and you can add zoe, vitamin c garlic and fuel™ twice a week to help it grow faster and some zooplankton or fetoplankton or how ever it is spelled and like that you get vitamins not only for corals but fish aswell

Thanks. Still trying to get a pic of the coral but nothing worth posting yet. Everything else seems to be doing well.

Sorry for lack of updates. Tank is doing well (although I lost an emerald crag the othe day) just haven't had time to post anything. I'm thinking the next fish I add will be clownfish or a tang. How do I find a mated pair of clownfish? The LFS has a bunch of them in one tank, but I can't tell if any appear to be mated. And, do I need to add the anemone at the same time if I want them to "live in" it?

They are fine without an anemone. Just get one that is bigger than the other. The smaller one will be the male and the bigger one will be the female. They may become a mated pair after a considerable amount of time (1 year+), doesn't really matter though IMO.

+1 and ill wait on the anemone atleast 8 to 12 months if you really want it, ill add the tang later they are semi aggressive and clowns even tho they can ve aggressive too they are on the nicer side too!!!

So if I add the clownfish now, without the anemone, when I do add the anemone they will hopefully live in it, right?

And can someone explain what the diatom bloom is? All of a sudden my tank is growing a lot of brown algae again. Not sure why. I think my pH is too high (8.6) so I'd doing some water changes to bring it down. And my nerite snails are starting to come out in the daytime (they used to hide in the overflow all day and only come out after the lights were off).

"Hopefully" is the key word there. The clown may or may not host it. Good luck!

P.S. - Abraham used a period in the post above! Actually, 2 of them There's hope for you yet, dude.

Still having diatom problems but the snails are slowly taking care of it. And I saw my serpent star today for the first time in weeks.

Going to the LFS tomorrow to look at clowns. Assuming I can get out of the driveway, that is. Been snowing for 24 hours, two feet already and still coming down.
