Send a message via AIM to divedeep1689
alot of people want to remove the damsel later on and they are tricky little fish to catch but all fish are most people remove them because they will sometimes fight clowns and some just want more room in thier tank to add more exotic fish without having to many fish but as you have a big tank i dont see why you would have a problem with the damsel i like my blue damsel but i just wish i could catch him so i can add another clown to my tank.

Two ways to do things with your sand. If you put the sand in first then blow up a small trash bag and put it in the tank. Pour the water on it so it dont stir up the water that much or put the water in and take a PVC pipe and slide the sand down to the tank floor and place it where it needs to be. There are other ways but those have been the easiest to me.

Is this "coral sand" dry now? What is coral sand anyway? Have you got it already.
