Thanks so much! I love my shrooms for some reason, not the flashiest corals but I like em.

Mr. x just also said acan as well, looks like great minds think alike. lol The one chromis I had jumped and the other just went missing one day. No body or cuc buffet that I saw. HAHA. I'm hoping they can keep their number at 3 they look so cool schooling around together.

Thanks for viewing! It's been a long battle to get the tank kinda to where i wanted it but I think I'm close. I love when people view it and say nice things or have suggestions, I appreciate all feedback good or bad. LOL

It will always be a work in progress I bet, I can think of half a dozen things I wanna tweak still, lol, the work is never quite done I guess.

The tank looks fantastic!!! Very inspiring for someone just getting started. I cannot believe how big the candy cane was. How big was it when you got it?

To be honest, the candycane hasn't grown as much as I would have liked. LOL It was pretty big to begin with. It recently lost 3 heads, they just receded so I might have someone chop off the dead parts so it can sit better in the tank.

i do have another candycane in another tank and that one has tripled in size in just a few months. It just keeps splitting and dividing heads, really neat to watch as the old head will morph into a a 3 headed stalk.

With a bunch of research and trial and error you can have a great tank. It's just a slow process, and patience is probably the most important thing you need in SW.

looking forward to seeing your great build(s) LOL

Do you add anything? I read about it and noted some stuff about trace elements and strontinum. I don't want to kill it, but I don't want to overdo it either

And yeah, this is definitely my first build, but not the last! I never anticipated that I'd do anything else (honestly, I just set this up so my daughter could get a nemo from Santa), but I'm soooo hooked! I can sit and stare at that tank for hours - and it's tiny in comparison to yours! Anyhow, we're moving to Washington, DC in a few months where we'll probably be renting an apartment first, so I can't go any bigger than this for now. But, when we've sold our current house and moved to, hopefully, or last home, then I'll definitely build something big! I can't wait Until then, it will just be my 28 G... and maybe a couple small nano reefs, just to have something to spend my money on... I'm sure my husband won't mind He didn't mind about this one when he found out about it... 2 months after I set it up
