I'm sorry about your clam. Atleast it wasn't about your parameters.

Yeah, the water is spot on, finally hit 0 nitrates in the tank too.

I may add another fish here or there but I think until the 60g rimless is here I will just be maintaining this tank and not really advancing it. :-(

it's pretty much just a coral frag tank now anyways LOL.

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

It's a combination of like 3 stores that I get them from and I know they don't ship. :-( Too snooty for that LOL The one store in orlando has extremely nice corals and very expensive BUT they have a $10 and $20 frag section that I shop from.

I'm hoping to place an order from saltwater2go soon for some zooas and might try Mr coral.com as well.

Went shopping today and got myself a lawnmower blenny. This tank really really needs it. LOL

It's been tragic though already! I had the fish in a bucket on my table near the tank and there was a weird noise behind me and when I look what do i see? Yep, Mr lawnmower flopping on the floor. He fell about 3 feet too onto pergo wood floors. I put him back in the bucket and he seems fine thankfully.
Can't believe he jumped like that and lived. I also don't believe I actually picked up a flopping fish with my bare hands. LOL

Will try to get some pictures later after he settles into the tank.

Congrats!! I love Lawnmowers! Now you have two, right? I can't wait for the pictures, and I am glad you got him after he jumped out!

Yeah, this is my second one. lol I really really like the one I had and figured since I have a tank full of algae why not? He'll be fine for the 60g tank too so I thought about that as well.

Still can't believe he jumped. hehe...he is in the tank now adn teh barnacle blenny is giving him grief so I have the lights out. Picture when everyone chills out some. lol
