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

Lol! I sold it to a guy on nano-reef a few weeks ago. He wrote and said he couldn't believe how much junk it was pulling out of the water. It is a great lil skimmer!

Aww I was finally ready to take the plunge! I should have jumped on it originally. Thanks anyways though. Maybe I;ll just get one new, they were running a rebate some time ago wonder if its still valid...

I'm still running the biocube skimmer with zip on results. :-(

But I did add a green killing machine UV sterilizer, it came with the 55g tank setup I bought yesterday. So i bought a new bulb and hope it helps with the algae. I figured it was almost free in the end and was curious if they work.

I only have the 9 watt one so it;s the perfect size for my cube. Now only ig it works....

In other cube news, my yellow watchman is still not yellow, he;s still a pale white. And the mandarin is liking the new frozen cyclopeeze I bought yesterday so hopefully she will completely switch to prepared foods again.

So today was the biocube day. I totally re did the rocks, gave it a cleaning like neverbefore, took out the skimmer and the uv since I wasnt seeing any results at all. Even cleaned up all the empty shells that littered my tank. I also swapped the order of my bulbs and put in a new blue bulb. Gotta say the blue is def more blue now

So of course i took lots of pictures! And I mean alot! LOL

Thanks, I;m getting her more and more on frozen food. If only her mouth were bigger I bet she'd eat more. She can;t get a whole bloodworm down, though its very amusing to watch her try. I;ve gotten to the point I;d like to chop them up for her. It would be nice to feed just two different foods to the tank instead of like 4. lol

I must say I;m very pleased with my new rockscape as well. I can see all my fish and shrimp now except for the yellow watchman, he now has a burrow and he might poke his head out here and there. This was the scaoe I wanted all along. My favorite so far, and trust me, I've re done this tank proabably 50 times, no exaggeration. lol

I;m now thinking of the stocking for this cube. The clowns will be out soon enough, going into the new 20g so I'll have some empty slots available.

I will have after the clowns vacate: mandarin, scooter, yellow wathcmand and a citron goby. I was thinking a purple firefish and maybe another small fish. All the fish that will be in there will be bottom dwellers and I'd like some mid water activity like I get from the clowns. Also there is the thought that when the yellow watchman gets too big he is gonna move over to the 125g but that all depends on how he does. he is still white as far as I can tell and has been for about 2 weeks. I know he is stressed, plus I had to do a pwc last night as I;d been putting it off for over 2 weeks to try to get the watchman unstressed.

Any ideas guys? I found a ton of blennies and gobies I'd love to have but again, I want swimmy fish.

Thanks for reading!

A firefish would look sooo cool. Maybe that and a marine betta or royal gramma?
