Spoonman your tank is AMAZING. You have given me something to shoot for when I sit up my 29. Your tank is not over crowded like some of the ones I've seen. I love your aquascape and also how your sand is higher on one side.
I have a question. Do you think 2 maxi-jet 400 will work well in a 29. They have 500 gph will this be enough.

I think that would work fine. The koralia's that I have are 550, so you should be ok. Thanks for the compliments!

Do you have a shrimp to go with your goby? What kind of fish is the blue one that you have? Do you run a big cuc because I didn't see any snails or anything like that in your tank? How much rock do you have in your tank and is it all live rock? Sorry for all of the questions I'm just wanting to set my tank up right the first time.

Do you have a shrimp to go with your goby? Nope, just the goby.
What kind of fish is the blue one that you have? It is a pygmy or cherub angel.
Do you run a big cuc because I didn't see any snails or anything like that in your tank? I have about 3 or 4 nassarius snails and a couple hermits
How much rock do you have in your tank and is it all live rock? I started with about 30 lbs of base rock (lace rock) and 10 lbs of live cured rock.
Sorry for all of the questions I'm just wanting to set my tank up right the first time. No problem, I will answer all the questions you have.

I have a question about your 240 planted tank. Did you have the plants growing before you put the fish in our did you add everything at about the same time?

My 240 was all fake plants. Actually now it is just driftwood and no plants.

Yes, for some reason when I do videos of my tanks, that is the one coral I can never remember. Too funny!

Check out my 75 thread. Picked up a new (to me) 75 off of craigslist. It is 8 months old. It is drilled in the same place and now I need to figure out how to switch everything without killing anything.
