Thanks hank. Now to find a clam, that's my next addition I think. I've always liked them and think its time. I'm leaning towards an ultra blue maxima. The trouble will be finding one.

Check saltwater fish.,com. They had black/white ones. I picked one up. Amazing. If not,check live aquaria in the divers den for your perfect match.

The problem I face is that I live in Canada and can't get livestock shipped here. I've already posted on a local forum and will call the LFS this week to see if someone can hook me up.

Well not really anything new to report. The tank is looking good. The bubble tip and clowns are happy living in symbiosis. The engineer actually moved homes to live under the clowns in the anemone. The upgrade in powerheads still has me smiling also, these things are powerful, quiet and generally awesome. I'm working out of town again during the week so I don't get to enjoy things as much as I would like however I did come up with a small remedy. I have a webcam that's part of our home security system set up on a tripod infront of the tank so I can pull it up on my iPhone app and see how things are doing.

Well things with the tank continue to improve. Had some issues with my skimmer so after a vinegar bath it is working awesome again. The anemone has grown which is good to see. I also added a mandarin last weekend, thanks to my father in law. He wasn't as scrupulous as I would have been and he got a really skinny one. The plus side is that it's settled in and is eating himself back into shape. Also had a buddy that trimmed his chaeto and brought me some. Mine hasn't really grown much and seems to be really tightly wound together, his is a lot more loose and it was a huge chunk that has already grown noticeably. I think I may start adding some coral back into the mix and get this tank looking like a reef again.

I got some frags from a fellow reefer and some nice ones at that.
True auzzie ultra green Duncan-3 head
Candy cane-3 head
Forest fire digi- actually nice size frag
Fire and ice milli- also good size
Ponape birdsnest
Validia acro- absolutely awesome!!
Strawberry shortcake- 3 small pieces on a single plug.

So far all corals open and appear happy. Even built myself a little frag rack this morning to hold them. Pics to follow.
