Those are nice looking rbta's. The ones at my lfs don't look nearly that colored, which is really important in a nem. Have you had any problems with it? I thought about getting one a while ago but was scared off because of the stinging capabilities.

This camera doesn't do justice the color is even more beautiful. Stinging- well don't touch them and they will sting nearby corals so move corals away once it settles in. I got them about 3 months ago from a fellow reefer so far no problem. I got really lucky because the stayed in the same place I placed them in. I fed them raw shrimp once a week.

But in the new tank both have split and are on the move. Hopefully they settle soon..

In my tank I don't think I'd have room to move the corals anywhere because the tank is so small and the nem can get so big. It's a 30g :/

What's the rest of the livestock in the 90 gal?

Bit of a surprise of on my first water test.
Ammonia - 0.25ppm
Nitrite - 0 ppm
Nitrate- 80ppm ( something is wrong here since I used 70 gallon new water and 30 old. Old tank had 5ppm before the move)

Ph- 8.2

Take a look

I am getting frustrated with the sound of the pump. Which return pump is the quietest?
