Oh, this tank is for sure staying fish only. I was just concerned that one of the fish would eat the starfish. lol I do prefer the red knobby looking stars, I had a red one in the reef but it slowly disinegrated over a week or so. :-(

Can you have more than one star fish? Like a red one and a CC one? Or will they attack each other?

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

i think its ok to have two in your tank. ha our african whatever it is tried to chase down the sand sifting star. or at least thats what it looked like.... a slow race. after about a foot the big star decided to hang out on the glass.

Just brought home a new fish!! A flame Hawk! woot! been wanting one for quite some time. He's acclimating now. Also paid for a red coris wrasse today, he just came in so the store will hold him til next week as a precaution.

All the fish are doing well still, the butterfly continues to eat like a pig and the bream has taken on a very neat personable quality, always looking at what youre doing and very inquisitive. Hope he makes it to big size, he's still so small. lol

Will have pictures up soon!

Yep Twitch, thats exactly why i've been waiting to do a fowlr with NO shrimp lol

Just put in the flame hawk and some mysis and brine and he ate so looks like he is gonna be ok. Always love when a new fish eats right away, makes me worry less.

Here are some pictures of the 90g and some of the fish, once I started snapping away with the camera i couldnt stop! LOL

Thanks so much! Always appreciate kind words.

So far one small issue with the flame hawk, my butterfly is chasing it! I turned the lights down to blues hoping it will chill out some. I got like the easiest and most wimpy butterfly too!
