I think I made some decent headway today. i got a pink arganite sand, got my heater ( it fits perfect) and ordered my stand which will be here tuesday so I gotta wait til then to start cycling.

woot woot!! Also checked out the LR, they have rubble as well.

Ended up with a 100w Hydor. I think it will be ok, I never really see our heaters go on much anyways, sometimes at night. The one I got is submersible and will shut off if no water so i feel safer just plopping it in.

Today was mostly FW day but the upcoming week should be alot of SW fun!

I was thinking on adding a shrimp to the cube as well, any comments? I'd love a harlequin shrimp but their food source i couldnt do myself, my b/f said he could do it for me if I wanted. lol

Just throwing around some thoughts...

much thanks!!

Ugh, you're gonna have a lot of work having to target feed your mandarin and then have to put in those tiny starfish to feed the harlequin shrimp....
I like my cleaner shrimps, but I'm putting a coral banded shrimp in my 20G.

My b/f said he could do it. lol so it is an option. i hear one leg a week so a starfish could last over a month. But its kinda morbid hehe i dont know ...

I agree the harlequin shrimp is beautiful but I would say it's not worth it. Although a Chocolate star is quite cheap around 7.99 ish I believe they are also beautiful in their own right. I have seen the legs being eaten off one before and It's something I won't watch again. Even cutting the legs off first is still harder than you BF might expect. I think you will have enough beauty in your tank with the mandarin, just make your screen saver a harlequin shrimp and you can get your "fix" from that lol.
