You might find the pink spotted gets too large for a 29g, the one I have in the 125g is almost 5 inches long I'd say.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Where did you find bioluminescent brittle stars for sale? I can't find them anywhere!!

Nice tank, btw. I'm following along. As far as your skimmer question, I'm partial to the reef octopus skimmers.

Cool. Thanks. I'll search with that label.

Maybe not the cheapest place to get one, but this is what I would get.

got a few zebra nerites yesterday and brought in the turbo snail before it starved lol. FINALLY picking up the 75 tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!

well my nephthea seems to be doing great and extending very well, but its' polyps don't spread like they did at first. the lfs that i frequent told me it is because i'm only giving them light and not phytoplankton like they were. could this be true?

that is the first few days. should i be worried?

It looks healthy to me. Adding phyto will start to affect your water parameters so just consider that before adding it. remember, every single thing you add to the tank STAYS in the tank unless you remove it. Just as that rule is for pooping animals it also applies to foods you add. Water changes and a skimmer can remove stuff but thats pretty much the only way you will get stuff out.

awesome thanks carey, you answer all of my questions so could it be true that the phyto was causing its' polyps to extend more? i definitely won't add anything to my system, until it is the full system which will be about 150-175 gallons before water displacement
