Nope havent tested for copper yet, but Ifigured it was safe since the inverts are all fine and some of the corals are doing ok...the one batchof cinnamon palys is ok, my pavona is looking good and the torch wasnt doing too badly in there. Ithink I have a copper test kit somewhere in my "fish closet", I will try to dig it out and test, just for ha ha's and to be 100% sure.

The toadstool closed up within an hour of the lights going on but is trying to open a bit now, so I figure its kinda accliamting. lol

Yeah Red, the tomini was a shy little thing way back when, but he is the first fish on any new additions, he has quite the attitude these days. lol

Now fingers are crossed that the leds pan out cause I have no backup now.

It is going to be weird looking at that wall without the tank! That is how it was with me with mine!

I miss the tank already. lol There is now a large loveseat in its space. It has stuff in the spot but just doesnt feel the same, like a huge empty place on that side of the room.
Next video I do you will see.

Ok, so today was a big fish stuff day!!!

First off, I ordered and paid for the new custom stand for the 60g rimless. It's going to be 36 inches tall with an open back so I can get the sump in and out, the front door will allow me to get the sump in and out as well. It will have a lip going around the top so that the bottom rim of the tank isnt seen, should look pretty good I think.

And yes, I did buy some fish. woot! I picked up the red sea blonde naso tang and the copperband. I watched them both eat twice today over a bout 2.5 hours so I am pretty confident they will do ok. The owner said to call him in 2-3 days to let him know if they continue to eat, if not i can bring the non eater back. he also said he would give me a reasonable guarantee period so that I can be sure I didnt waste my money. he has kept them both in a copper system for 4 and 5 weeks respectively so they should be clear of any disease. I know some may disagree with my buying another copperband since they are so hard to keep, but I promise, this is the last one I will try no matter what the outcome is.

Both are acclimating in the bucket that the store lent me for transport so I should have some photos at some point tonight if they come out after being introduced lol.

Wish me luck guys!

Good luck! I'm excited to see how the Blonde does too. That's on my Tang list eventually.

Can't wait to see the new pictures of the mask and the 'last' copper band in Carey's 'last' reef tank.

Great! We all love new fish and pictures/videos!

He sounds like a much better owner of a store than the other one!
