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

I am very excited about the sympodium, I have been wanting one forever but all the other stores had it for over $50 at least so for $20 I got one. It's small but it will grow.

The goby has settled in and has his own little burrow, I think he may have hooked up with my pistol shrimp as well! I actually saw the pistol yesterday, first time in like 6 months. Overall the tank is doing well and I'm pleased.

OOps, I don't have pictures yet! LOL I'll get a few shots and then post them.
I am very interested to see the sympodium. Never heard of them before! I love Rics too.

Can't wait for the pictures!

Thanks! I couldn't resist they were 3 for $40. lol I hope to have a nice mushroom garden. The sympodium is the first picture, kinda reminds me of blue clove polyps.

I think that a mushroom garden is an awesome idea. I am going to try to make one myself, with lots of Rics!

Your tank has come along very, very nicely! I hope mine looks like it someday!

An unhappy update I'm afraid. My lawnmower blenny has disappeared, been MIA for about 6 days now. he was my oldest fish at a bit over a year. :-( Really sad to lose him. Not sure if i will replace him or not, he was the most awesome fish.

Thanks guys. Sad to see a good fish go. I have no idea how long their life span is supposed to be but a year seems much too soon. All my water parameters are good, just in case anyone wondered. I have some high phosphates but thats about it. I've been testing for an ammonia spike since he went missing, but so far not even a blip. I don't expect one, I think the bio filter in my tank is like 200%, I never get a blip when anything dies. Even when Bob the sea hare passed and he was like a foot long. lol
