takin water to LFS tomorrow after work for tests by a pro.
If it's good, I will bring home my NEMO!!

It is pretty bizarre, but I'm sure hoping it will work.

Ernie!
Is percula and friendly and not even a bit shy. I fed him tonight when I got home and he swam up and nibbled some frozen brine shrimp right off my finger.
Now I guess I officially have a fowlr tank!

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

Thanks Carey
I totally agree, that he is probably the cutest lil fish ever And, he didn't try to bite me and he's just sooooo little right now, bout an inch. I'm just so happy! I spent over an hour just watching him tonight....

ok...

so I went and got Ernie's bro Bert from the store and added him in too. I have brown diatoms going nutso in my tank, the spongey thing is hanging in, the water parameters are all good and everything seems just peachy. I have also discovered 2 (yes 2) critters that had to have come from the live rock...
I think the first one is a snail the other is too fast and creepy to get pics of or even a good look at!

My snail has disappeared
Bert & Ernie are doing very well tho! Just fed them some micro marine pellets before I leave for work. Will feed them again when I get home. I am still leaving my lights on, as the diatoms look not so bad and they are a sign of a healthy tank. I will be getting the first half of my CuC this weekend.
2x Astrea Snails
2x Marg Snails

Looks pretty good...Ive been up and down with whether or not I should get two clowns for the same size aquarium. I think I will wait until January to purchase fish though and I'll just get a cleanup crew. I'm gone 9 out of 10 days in December and I'm gone 4-5 days next week with no one to check on water parameters and a feed the fish so I have to wait

I'd skip the margaritas and just get more astrea. My margaritas used to climb out or die lol. Could never keep the buggers alive but I've had the same astrea for about a year now and he cleans the walls great!
