Productive day for me today!
Bought 25lbs of base rock, its really nice, I got like 4 pieces and three of them have huge holes going thru them for little fishies which will be perfect!
Also picked up 2 20lb bags of fiji pink live sand and a tube of acrylic for the overflow box.
I also got some nls fish food and a 2.5 lb flat pack of pemysis! I am set for a bit now.
I spent a good amount of time in poseidon looking around and lo and behold what do they have in stock? THE NEW ruby red mandarin!!!! I am in love with these little guys and am pretty sure that I will be getting one for this tank. They are like $90 online but the store has them for $45! The owner said a few are even eating brine so thats promising.
I think the plan for stocking will be itty bitty fish. So far, the ruby red is a must have and I also very badly want a two spot, signal goby. Yep, I know they can be difficult to feed but if I can make the mandarin work I bet I can get him to thrive as well. Any other ideas out there for itty bitty fish or other small ones? I plan on an open top too so keep that in mind.
And finally, the 60g stand is supposed to be done by Friday so that will be another build.
