If you have the money at some point, Helfrichis. I just love their colors. Red is my least favorite because the colors get kind of boring, I hate too put a living creature down though.

Why not get a transparent mesh screen lid and open up the world of possibilities?

I have the mesh screening on my 90g and 180g. The only issue I would have is the 40 is kinda low, so you can see right in from the top. Maybe I'm being stupid, but I kinda dont like the look if it, I think it detracts from the rest of the tank. lol

All is well in fishy land as far as an update.
The pop eye is going away on the hawkfish, almost gone now. I lost the brain, as expected, just threw it away yesterday. :-(((
But otherwise all the corals are doing fine.

Thanks Red! I was so certain I was gonna be scooping his dead little body out one day soon but he's a tough lil guy. He's begging for food again and finding the food perfectly so I guess it the blindness was only temporary.

I am going to pick up a FREE sump tomorrow for the 60g rimless.

Guy from my reef club has one thats already partitioned out and has a sump sock holder built in so I jumped at the offer. Gonna give him a bag of reef crystals too, I hate taking stuff for free. lol

Still havent gotten to the rockscaping in the 60g. Maybe this weekend. I hurt my back soo bad this week and was in bed for most of the week so I have a lot to do!

Carey how is the sleeper head goby? Iv always liked the look of them but read that they can be a nightmare in a reef tank by spitting the sand everywhere

That lil gold headed sleeper IS a pain. lol I am constantly blowing sand outta corals. He is an awesome little fish though, just deal with it I suppose. lol
The small toadstool is constantly full of sand in its "cup", the turkey baster works ok to get it blown out. i wasnt so lucky with the 4 headed candycane coral I had though, he filled the cups of those polyps full everyday and no matter how much I blew the sand out they didnt make it. :-(
I'm hoping to pick up a fish or two this weekend! I am picking up that used sump later today and then will probably go out to lunch with some friends...so not sure when I can get out to orlando to get em. lol
Gonna take some pictures in a bit of the 60g, it's still just a holding tank for the live rock but its still very pretty on it's new stand. )

Congrats on the free sump....free is always good! And that is so exciting about the new fish? Do you have any ideas on what you want, or are you just going to get what speaks to you? lol

I wish you a speedy recovery for your back.
