By the way, the Kole Yellow Eyed Tang is named Niel. After Niel Armstrong (my childhood hero) since the Appolo Astronauts drank "Tang" while on there missions.

Love the name! Kinda why I went with pootie "tang" for my blue tang, just seems appropriate. lol Of course your reference is much more respectful than a crappy movie by chris rock and wanda sykes. rofl

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

LOL Whatever floats your boat. I have spent my life from 3rd grade on wanting to walk on the moon. Something tells me I that goal may be a bit "Lofty". LOL Oh, well, we can always dream right?

Oh, and by the way, that should be Neil not Niel. LOL I was a bit dislexic yesterday.

Short update. An AA friend wanted to see pics of my Kole so I did some looking back at the videos I have taken and it hit me just how muck the coraline has progressed on the back of my tank in the past month. Wow. This video was taken to illustrate how much flow I had to my Hammer Coral frag but has some Guest Appearances by my Kole. Tonight, I will get another video and you can compare the difference in the coraline if you like. Surprised me.

Thanks Carey. I appreciate it.

Yes, he is a camera hog. LOL I am very happy with how my tank has progressed. After reading everthing on this site, I find mine to be extreamly stable. While I can take a little credit for that, I think mainly I just got lucky. Can't wait to finish up the DIY 6 Lamp fixture and get it going. Maybe then, my corals will start to pop a bite and I can concetrate on getting a few more.

Made some good progress on my DIY 6 Lamp T5HO 54W fixture today. Whats left? 1-Maybe one more coat of paint. 2-Install the hanging gear. 3-Purchase the lamps. 4-Get it hung from the cieling and fire it up.

Not sure my wife is happy about the fact that our yard looks like a double wide should be parked in the middle of it with a 67 Mercury up on cinder blocks but hey, you can't have everything right?????

Besides, if the HOA President's yard looks like this it takes the pressure off of the rest of the hood. See, alway have the general public in mind. That's just how I roll.
