FINALLY Pics of my new tank!

Here are some photos of my first saltwater tank. It is a little over two months old. Sorry about the blur, I should have taken photos at night. (I have a good camera but it doesnt photograph tanks well..maybe a different setting?)

Let me know what you think!

That is a super-long tank, and really pretty! How long is it, how many gallons? I'd love to see a couple of "mountains" of rock in there. Will you be adding more rock?

Love it!

It is 82 inches long and 80 gallons. Yes, I will be adding more LR soon. Its just that is so hot here, in Las Vegas, that the shipments are not that great.

UPDATE- BF's nasty trigger ate my royal gramma and is nipping at my Marron clownfish! He is outta there tomorrow!

Very nice. I like the variety of fish. Hopefully mine will be looking like that soon.

A trigger can eat a royal gramma? How big are they (were they) ?

Hmmm..BF thinks that the royal gramma just died from natural causes(about 2 inches long) trigger is about 3 inches...and that trigger just ate him after he was laying on the bottom. Royal gramma did have some white sand looking spots on his head and then the next day they were gone. Maybe he had a disease but was swimming fine last night.

He also says that the damsels are picking on the clownfish.

What do you think?

From your other post I thought that the trigger attacked and killed your alive royal gramma, which seemed quite unlikely. If it died on its own, that's another story. Any dead fish on the bottom of the tank is fair game for all other inhabitants.

I also think that any damsels you have are likely to be picking on anyone else in your tank! I don't do damsels!!

Thats the thing..I am not sure. I just assumed trigger ate gramma..but maybe not. I have been trying to get rid of the damsels but am having a hard time catching them.

Hmmm...hopefully someone can help me figure out what happened here and why clown has nipped fins.

Courtney, That is a great looking tank. I`m impressed. I would also like to agree with the damsel idea. They can get quite nasty. Keep up the good work and as I said in your other post, Make educated decisions. Both of you. I can see right now this is going to be a great tank later on.
