Thanks! Your tank looks great! I hope mine turns out pretty. I need to post some pics of my progress so far...just the tank and water for right now, and the rock that don't have corals on it, which is not many lol! Still looking on craigslist for a deal on rock. Found a couple deals but nothing definite.

I finally found some rock to put in my tank. Its rock that a person on craigs list had who does tank maintaince for a living. Kinda cool that it came out of a carolina panther football player's house. Got 88lbs @ $2/lb! Score! Its mostly fiji rock too, with a few flat pieces of base rock @ $1.50/lb. I'm very excited!

Also got a star fish for the 30gal.

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

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
maybe the new rock putting off some dust or something? btw, that rock appears to either be from someone's sump, or brand new rock. it does not look as though it's from an established reef tank (unless like i said, it's from the guys sump where it was void of light). have you checked your parameters recently?
