I am sure he will come out soon. Probably just getting used to his surroundings.

got my refugium setup. it has about 14lbs of sand making it just over 3 inches deep. also was given a pretty decent piece a cheato from a local guy to get me started.





right now i have the intake into the fuge where it is rippling the top of the water, should i leave it like that or point it down where it has more flow through the cheato?

got my new koralia 1050 in today.




the one that is already in the tank must be an older model. the new one is much smaller.

what does everyone here think about the brs gfo and carbon reactors? in the summer i have to travel for work, sometimes up to 3-4 weeks at a time. i have roommates that can handle feeding the fish while i am gone but i don't think they will be willing to do a water change. so i was thinking that the reactors may be a good idea to help keep the water clean and stable while i'm away. what do you guys think? should i look into bio pellets as well?

plus i like gadgets so im always looking for things to do to my tank

anyone have some input on the reactors?

i am thinking of ordering this during the next brs group buy.
Dual BRS GFO and Carbon Reactor - English

on there site they say it is best to run a single reactor. one for carbon and another for gfo. ideally i would like to do that but i'm not sure if i have enough room in my sump for 2 more pumps. what do you guys think?


also here is what i am thinking as far as stocking goes. what should be my next fish?

eight line wrasse (in tank)
starry blenny (in tank)
kole tang
heniochus butterfly
watchmen goby and pistol shrimp pair
ocellaris clown
B&W ocellaris clown
flasher wrasse
pair of fire fish.


not sure about the fire fish. might change those to something else.

no one has any comments? i went ahead and bit the bullet the other day and ordered new lights.





the hangers that came with them were to long to hang in the hood. the lights would have been in the water lol. a trip to lowes solved that.
