let me know what everyone thinks about the new look.

i'm hopping i didn't disturb the sand bed to much. i tested for ammo about 2 hours after i finished and it was 0. should i check again in a few hours or anything else i should look out for?

i also added another 1050gph koralia for some extra flow.
quoted so pics are on this page.


thanks caitlynn! i just kind of threw things wherever they would fit and that is what i ended up with lol.

It looks good! I like that there are ledges and places for coral! With a few caves and holes for the fish to play!

so here lately i've really been wanting a snowflake eel. i originally didn't think about them cause i was going to have shrimp but since i can't have them with my wrasse i'm wondering if i could get a snowflake?

what do you guys think? do they eat snails, hermits or emerald crabs? what about the fish on my stock list?

here is a stock list of what i'm thinking.
eight line wrasse (in tank)
starry blenny (in tank)
B&W clown (in tank)
Orange clown (in tank)
kole tang
heniochus butterfly
hoevens wrasse
flame angel (maybe)

snowflake eel??

man i can not decide how i want to stock this tank.

i stopped by the lfs and picked up a few more red leg hermits, a couple astraea snails, and a fighting conch. while i was there i obviously had to check out the fish. i really liked a picasso trigger they had. what all would i have to change stocking wise to keep one? la says 70 gallons so tank size wouldn't be a problem its just tank mates.
