Well, Neil is a cool name. Lance named our tang after Helmut Kohl the ex German bundeskanzler >.< why? Because it's a KOLE tang and it's pronounced just like the Helmut guy... My bf is a big German history buff
Thinking he and I would get along just fine. My wife hates the name I picked but since he is the only fish that "Belongs" to me (my B-Day present) I got to name him.

Nice job, and nice looking fish.

In the end isnt the satisfaction of all the work and patience just SO worth it? lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thx (: dunno about patience though considering how I was whining and crying hahahaha
Definitely will add a pair of B&W clownfish (gonna turn in my tomato, he is way too aggressive). My mandarin will move in last bc I want the tank to mature a much as possible before he moves in. and bc I love wrasses there will be at least 2-3 of em in there. Lance wants bengal cardinals in there but bc they are almost exiting I'm kind if reluctant... need to find some that have been tank bred. And of course I will add 3 blue/green chromis. Don't wanna overstock though... Adding a Black sailfin blenny and that would be it that's roughly 10-12 fish, more than plenty

considering that he paid for the kole AND the name kinda stuck, that will be the only fish he will get to name hahaha his next choices are Hannelore, wilhelm, Dieter and so on... NO WAY! I like Neil, way better than Lances choices >.<

Thx Carey
It was really worth it... It's like a long long trip an you finally arrived home.
NEED TO SLEEP but can't stop staring at the tank

Wonder if my anemone is gonna like the place I chose for it... Wonder where it will settle.

Pistol shrimp didn't waste one minute ad is already digging around

i like the german names. but that may be because im 3rd or 4th gen from the boat. they are good hard strong names... cut sweety pie some slack.

every fairy wrasse ive seen is very cool looking. so go girl. yeah im to white for that to sound right but you get the idea.

very nice tank and you two have potential to do amazing things with it. i think its cute how you two seem to be with the tank. and how you wont let him do too much of the work with it.

Thx coffee, that's very sweet of you

Well, I'm 1st gen German: Born and raised. So I'm naturally not very fond of those good old named. Because Lance is a big German history buff and collects world war II miniatures I always say I'm part of his collection

And nope, won't let him touch the tank, just as he won't let me touch his miniatures... Not that I want to anyways LOL
I'm glad he got a big interest in saltwater aquariums ever since I dragged mine into the house when I moved in, it's something we can do together on a daily basis. But if something goes wrong I don't want him to be the one I'm mad at for screwing up, if that makes any sense?!

As of right now I won't touch the tank until Monday.

Which reminds me: the QT is empty now... Time to get some blue/green chromis
I like the rockscape! Your tank is spotless!

Oh wow, thx *blush*
I like it too... Just hope that with the addition of the 30g life rock it's still looks the way I like it... Took me forever to get it just right
