Okies, for my last tank, the one that has all the coral! The 40b!

Currently running just a sump with a filter sock, return pump of a mag 9.5 and a hang on remora skimmer. Just added an ATO, tunze nano that I picked up on ebay for like $70.

The occupants are:
Pair of true perc clowns
hawaiin hawk fish
pixie hawkfish
Golden headed sleeper goby and
a firefish
almost forgot, a lawnmower Blenny too!

Just added the firefish a few days ago, the pixie has been harassing him so he doesnt comeout of his hidey hole much. lol The pixie has been harassing other fish as well, might have to move him to the 60g or maybe even the 180g, but there are 2 hawks in there already so not too sure what to do.
I also added a red bubble tip about a week or two ago and he is doing fine as well. I was worried since the tank hasnt been setup that long but for $20 i couldnt resist. lol

Here is the video of the 40, hope it comes out ok. I switched on the whites half way thru so we could actually see stuff. lol

The silly clowns have not ventured too far away from their corner of the tank yet. I was hoping they would find the nem and do the host thing but even if they dont I will be ok with that. lol

yeah, the pixie is a cute lil devil, he wasnt a problem until just recently. I figured how bad and aggressive could a tiny little thing like that be? Well, now I know. lol

Still waiting for the u tube video to be done.

Great video! You are going to keep the 40g when the 60g gets going, right?

Thinking of tiny fish that can be little devils, Dottybacks! The Diadem I had was just dandy, but that was probably because he mostly had bigger tank mates. I forgot, do you have one?

I had a purple dottyback in the 180g but I think he picked a fight with a bigger nastier fish, he disappeared about 2 months ago. :-(

And yes, of course I am keeping the 40b running even after the 60g goes online.

I only have 5 tanks now, I feel like I have an empty house right now! lol Down from 9 is such a huge difference. I feel the need for a new tank.....don't we all though?

The tank is looking great Carey! The orbits seem to be fairing well... By far the best tank. I expect a bright future for the 60!

Thanks Mac!

Still have some issues with the 180g and the 40b but nithing I cant remedy I hope.
Have a little bit of cyano going on in the 40b and still unsure of the long term effectiveness of the orbits. I am contemplating buying a second orbit and seeing how good that would work. My one lfs uses the orbits too, but he has them doubled up on his tanks. So thats an option.
And of course the major issue with the lighting in the 180g. I just cannot figure out what to do with it. Go back to t5's or wait it out and watch my corals suffer?

Took clowns in my 90 about 9 months to start hosting rbta. Now they wont leave them alone.

Black clowns in my 14 took about 2 weeks.

No intervention (taping photos to tank, confine to small container) on my part.
