Here's some shots of the 95 lbs of rock. i filled my 29g with it. I'm very pleased with the rockwork.

I plan on adding some to the cube tomorrow maybe, the more rock the better for the scooter.






Not a bad start for a tank that had no rock 6 hours ago.LOL I'm hoping the live sand will help seed the rock. So now I have another tank up and running with 2 clowns and one coral.

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

Looks sweet!

Why are the clowns bad exactly? And which pair.

The orange misbars have been tormenting the coral and the female is attacking my b&w's. I'm trying to get them to host another coral in the time out tank so they can go back into the 55g. LOL Not sure it's gonna work though

haha awe well i hope it works! Would be nice if you could get each pair to stay to there own side, it was really cute when they were hosting it together though, guess they don't like roomates.

So I'm just trying to feed the scooter and waiting for my gobies.

In the meantime I put some rock and coarse pads into the pod tank for them to live on. I also put my water change water into it to help get more pods LOL.

Here's my ghetto pod tank. I'm not sure if I need a light or not, I hope not

I was wondering if I should take anymore live rock outta my 55g and put it in the cube. My lr in there is crawling with pods. lol

I can replace that rock with some of the base rock I bought yesterday.

Just a thought. Think it will help? Scooter is still pretty much eating just pods. he hasn't hit the glass yet though, tons on there. hehe

I think so. The more pods the better. But just make sure there isn't anything that you want on it like a coral that happened to encrust it.

I'm eyeing a particular rock from the bottom of my display tank of course. About 3-4 lbs but it has a nice huge pod population. It's teeming with the big pods.

I was thinking to put it in now but I still have a good lot in the cube on the glass and back walls. He's just passing them by. Not sure if he's full or if he just decided to stop eating.

Would it be smart to just ween him off pods?
