Water parameters have been stable and overall the tank is in good shape. Not exactly what I imagined it would be but still good enough. It's my "special needs" fowlr tank pretty much. I plan on moving the xenia over to the 55g and selling it off with that setup to finally get rid of it! It's a plague I tell you! HEHE....
Beautiful tank! It really is, I really like the rockscape!

Since Mandy is up and well again i figured I'd take a video or two of the 29g cube.

Was trying to get a clear shot of her little pot belly but she wasnt cooperating.

Now, this is a bad example of a clean tank so be warned, tomorrow is the day to clean it so it's quite messy. It's only a minute or so long and no carey commentary this time LOL

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

hehe...I'm overstocked no doubt in the cube lol. it's got the two clowns, a citron goby, firefish, a ywg,(who is white now), the scooter and mandy.

I'm gathering items for the 60g cube build so hopefully I can start that soon and give these guys some more swim room. I have the lights, rock,heater and return pump so far. I'm having a hard time with the sump for it, the cabinet is only 23 inches wide and the only thing I can find is a 15g high. :-( Also not sure about the skimmer, was gonna play skimmer switcheroo between all the tanks. LOL

I need to start a build thread for this 60g soon. I have so many ideas I havent bounced off of anyone yet really.

I would love to see a build thread for the 60g (as you know, I love build threads, lol). I think a 15g would probably be good enough, but then again I don't know that much about equipment. You are normally the person I go to for sump help, .

Nice stock by the way!

Thanks!

I'll probably start a new thread for the 60g this week, I'm hoping to get some more stuff for it. I'm also planning on going with a vortech so thats gonna eat up my budget and make the build a tad bit slower. lol

Awesome, can't wait!

If you put your hand in the tank like a platform, will Mandy come and sit on it? I have seen some people do that with their Blennies.

LOL. I can't say I've ever tried. All the fish generally hide when I'm messing in the water. In the 125g though when i add the seaweed sheets the chormis are all about seeing what I'm doing, but the rest all run away.

I saw the neatest thing today- nano clowns. they were maybe a 1/4 inch, they were swimming through the holes in the holding tanks. he said they were just really young but they were adorable. Tank bred and beautiful fish, only $18 a piece, I soo wanted to get a pair.
