Just curious why you went with percula over oceallaris.

They look great, I'm sure they'll be very happy in your tank.

They really didn't have any nice looking ocellaris. Wife and kids liked these better. Think the next fish I think will be the royal gramma. Wife and kids liked that one too. Luckily so do I.

Yea I like the dark coloring in the middle they have when they mature.

Yeah, they royal gramma is a nice looking fish. I was told to hold off on it until later down the road, as they don't take kindly to new additions. No experience with that, obviously, just passing along what was recommended to me. I will most certainly have one in my tank.

Nice looking clowns.

I had my royal gramma as one of the first additions and she didn't bother a soul in the tank. She did spend most of her time hiding in the rockwork though. lol

First day and all is well!

Couple of pics this morning. Got the xenia and a bonus mushroom on the rock with it. I will be going back to the same guy in a couple weeks for the torch. I am so proud of myself for accomplishing this! One has quite the black saddle and it looks like the other is starting to get his/hers.

When we went to pick up the corals last night, the guy has a 120g that is gorgeous. Wife pointed at a fish and said, "We gotta get one of those." Had to tell her it will be a while before we can have a mandarin....LOL. Hard to explain this to wife and kids. All these things will help my cause down the road to change my 140 over to salt. Explained to her about pods and the advantage of having a sump like this guy did. This may work out in my favor...LOL!
