(165 ish for light and 25 ish for shipping). The skimmer I want $40 for, will ship for free with light otherwise, I think it is going to be $8 as it is about the size and weight of the other boxes I sent you. I used the light for two months, so the bulbs should be good for a while, I think someone said a year for T5HOs. Let me know if you want either.

I'll have to think about it. Thats a good deal but my next build that I have in mind won't need those lights. LOL I just have to decide which way I'm gonna go next.

I gotta share this. I was looking at the tank and noticed my gramma, all dead looking, plastered to the outisde of my Koralia. I'm like almost in tears, I figure he is the next fish to go. I run to get the net to put him in the QT and as I go to get him he just freaks out and swims away, all normal. Stupid fish. LOL

He is fine and normal just had to share this.

Almost time to go to petco to get another tank. woohoo!

Also, I was wondering how many cleaner shrimp would be good in this 125g. I have 2 skunk cleaners already and was thinking about getting more. maybe 3? or is that too many? I happen to love the inverts so it's not about getting fish cleaned as much as I like them.

i honestly would have two for every foot of tank, i'd put 6 in but that night be to many. idealy i would think that a two cleaner per two foor section it just seems logical to me as they have a perfect view of fish in that area as well as fish have a view of them

generally they will pair up and setup a station and stay there unless its feeding time

I bought three skunk cleaner shrimp today!! at $15 each at petco's big sale. Unfortunately one was really small and now I can't find him. lol

I'm also gonna order some new white bulbs for my fixture this week, I got in on a BRS group buy supposedly. Think I'm gonna get just 6 ATI aquableu plus and replace the blues maybe next month. I've noticed my corals arent doing as well as they did in the 55g so I wanna give them a boost.
