Thanks! LOL I went to look at it again today. I get paid a few days after christmas so maybe I can put it on lay away. I also want to get some extra bells and whistles for the controller too PLUS I should be putting the 90g up so we'll see how far my check goes this month.

Picked up a really nice fuzzy mushroom today, forgot to take a picture while the lights were on. I'll get a good shot tomorrow.

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

My energy level is getting low these days, too much going on LOL

Have some bad news about this tank. My ultra purple maxima clam is dead. :-( **cry**

I'm almost 100% sure it was my fault. I had him up high in the rockwork but I took almost all the rock out of the tank to treat the flatworms and when i was doing this I banged into his rock and he fell off. I think his muscle got ripped when that happened. He was slighty open since then and today the shell is all the way open and theres just some tiny bit of flesh left inside.

Was a beautiful specimen, sucks that i was the reason it died. I've learned my lesson, no more clams for me.

I am really sorry carey . Mistakes happen all of the time, don't feel bad about it.

Always there for me Redsea! I appreciate it. Just hate doing dumb things, and this time it caused a creature to die. Total bummer.

I'm sorry about your clam Carey. What about putting him in a small tank all by himself and then wait and see? Remember my Encrusted Horn? He is still in the 10 gal with nothing but a pump and a heater. I actually put a light on him tonite for the first time since I moved him. He ended up pure white all over, no green left. He's got more green back now. There are a few totally white areas still but it looks like those will turn again. I can even see his ridges now. So.........the reason I explained all this, is before you decide he is gone, just isolate him and wait. He may not come back but he may have something in there that may spring forth.

I still have the 'stick' that the orange polyps was on too, can't tell what may be coming out of it but some areas show life of some sort.

Oh the clam shell is empty now, nothing to come back. I think the hermits had their way with the remains. :-(

Probably gonna leave the shell in anyways, it looks kinda cool. Also a reminder to be more careful to me! lol
