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

yeah, because i have already had the qt up and running for 2 months it's less of a build now... just transfer over the the livestock and rock. I dumped the sand in, i was using the bottle method and it was working awesome, but extremely slow and tyring to watch a 2yr old while attempting was not working so i ended up just dumping it all in and hopefully its clear in the morning so i can start moving things. I currently have 1 cleaner shrimp, 1 hermit-going to add another soon, 1 clown, a fighting conch, and 4 asterina snails. there were more asterinas but the hermit wanted to test their shells.... he did find one he liked but certainly went through enough of them. also my rescued zoa's are growing more heads, they haven't colored up much yet though; and i picked up a huge colony for 20bucks. they're not anything special but i like em.
oh and i have this crab that is growing by leaps and bounds, i was hoping to get a goby/shrimp pair, but im sure one or the other will perish and the crab is getting pretty large-my wife is dead set on keeping it, i want to return him to to ocean though...

Thats the plqn move everything over, leave some ceramic media in the tray for when i need to start the qt and go.

The tank is slightly cloudy, i can see the back wall...but not clearly at all.

Also my wife wanted to see what what fish i wanted pulled up images of firefish she points to the helfischi and goes thats pretty. I go iys 100 bucks i was thinking these and showed her the purple... Then she said find the "pretty" ones! Massive score for team bohanon
