Have to go down and winterize the neighborhood pool this morning but then...... It's off to the grand openning of a new LFS here in my area. My plan is to come home with my last fish for this build which will be a Diamond Watchman Goby. As part of thier grand openning they are running a sale so I can get it for $35 which seems to be about a $10 savings. After that, it will be time to start concentrating on some corals.

Thanks redsea. I appreciate it. I am very happy with how it is coming together. So far, the only hickup I have had is a bit of a flood when I cleaned my canister filter about a month ago. LOL Now, if I can do as well on the corals I will be very happy.

Yep, the tank will be filled up with corals, before you know it, and you will have to get another tank soon than you thought! I am currently trying to stock my 34g with corals, I only have 4 at the moment.

Yes, I have 4 as well. Looked at some very nice clams yesterday at the LFS that has its grand opening today. They had several full size and then a few tiny ones. Wish I was ready for one but I have been cautioned against it until the tank matures some more.

Yea, I have heard the Clams aren't the easiest creatures to keep, they are very colorful and beautiful though! I think they also require high lighting, which I don't have in my 34 gallon.

Today's additions. Our Diamond Watchman Goby and a couple of corals. Don't ask the names because I don't know. LOL I decided to try one hard coral just to see how it does in my tank with my lighting. It was only $10.00 before the grand opening discount and the reef club discount. All told, for those there items, some coral dip, and some epoxy I spent about $85.00 after tax. Not bad considering the fish is $45.00 before tax everywhere else.

Nice pickups! Hopefully we can see a better picture of the goby after he is in the tank.
