Hi Carey! How are the tanks doing? Is the Betta tank underway? Hope all is well.

If it's a rabbit, I prefer one of these anyway-
Never seen one of these. Very very cool!

I've only seen them online but I love their look! I haven't added anything to the 180g lately at all, it just seems like the tank is finally coming into balance, in a way. lol The longer my tanks are setup they seem to reach a "zen" state where very little has to be done maintenance wise and the fish all seem happy and healthy.

In fact, I think I will do a little update in a bit. Or for anyone that reads these updates of mine you know it probably won;t be a little update at all as I like the yammer on and on.
Gonna go take some photos so I have some to post with the update.

Okies, so the update!
The 90g is doing it's usual, running well without too much intervention. I lost thepurple urchin somewhere so getting a bit of algae on the right big rock, I hope to get another urchin to get the tank to where it was as far as algae. The only fish in here are: The nasty blue eyed tang, big eyed squirrel fish, a nasty banana wrasse, sumo the flame hawk, a single black clown and of course the monster teddy bear, the like two foot long engineer goby! He doesnt come out alot so I couldnt get his photo, generally I just see him slithering between rocks, he has the entire tank structure caved out to his liking. lol

The 125g cichild tank- Doing well. I don't always post about this tank so people dont know I keep one in freshwater as well as all the other saltwater tanks. But it's stocked full of african cichlids, I'd say in the neighborhood of four inches upwards of 8 inches. havent changed anything at all in this tank, just threw in some teeny tiny baby fish all at once and they have almost all grown up already. lol

The 40g breeder, reef. UGGGGG. This tank has been a nightmare. Full of algae and now that it's finally gone, with the help of a lawnmower blenny, I have an aipastia issue. I am slowly taking this tank down and moving things over to the 60g cube. I love the foot print but am not gonna deal with those nasty anemones again so it's gone. I currently have a pair of perc clowns, a gold headed sleeper goby, a hawaiian hawk fish, a spotted hawk fish and thats it. A few corals remain but I never had any luck with that current Orbit led fixture and lost most of them. What I do have left is going into the 60g. I am selling the 40b setup if anyone is in florida and wants a great system.

The 60g rimless cube: Doing better, the corals are starting to do well now that I have the radions dialed down. I still need to adjust them more but I don't get the stupid software lol. Just doesnt do what I want it to. Plan on getting on youtube for help. hehe In this tank there is only the firefish and the baby naso tang. The tang is now bigger than the firefish and will need to be moved soon but he is still too darn jittery. I cant even get close to the tank sometimes and the firefish scares him. he is in no way ready for the meanies in the 180g, but he is growing so fast I cant keep him in this tank much longer. Not sure how to proceed, maybe after the fish from the 40g go in he will get more courage and stamina. I hope so.

And finally the 180g! It's doing well other than the fact that I need to take a razor blade to the coralline on the glass.It's really really bad so dont be surprised when you see the photos I just took. The stock hasnt changed much. I am down to 5 chromis and one in the overflow from a high of 15 chromis. Its; taken about 2years for the chromis population to dwindle so I guess I did better than some.
I think that sums it up, I tried to be short but it turned into a freaking novel length post AGAIN. lol

ANyways. thats it. Following are the pictures I just took real quick. I almost forgot, I now have 5 anemones in the 60g, I had two and then they just kept splitting. Just got a new split two nights ago. Sooooo cool.....

That Engineer Goby does sound so cool, very secretive! It must be fun to find where he is hiding at any given time! Eight inches, wow, almost a foot long for some of the Cichlids! They must look huge. Sorry to hear about the algae issues in the 40g, I know exactly how you feel. I am having a bit of an issue now in the 29g BioCube. Gee golly, I do these huge water changes but the darn algae still seems to like to hang out. I recently got some Mexican Turbo Snails like I used to have in my 34g Red Sea Max, and they are helping a lot; but, they are eating less than the old ones it seems, LOL.

I bet it is so much fun to watch the baby Naso grow….soon he’ll be as big as some of your Cichlids and you’ll be thinking “how did that happen?” That is so awesome about the anemones!

You’ve had Sumo and the Squirrelfish for a few years now, right? I seem to remember them from around the 90g first got started! I love it when I have had a fish for a while, it always feels good!

AHHHH! I see the Tomini Tang, I always have loved the unique color scheme on that guy.

The tanks are all looking great!
