No cover do to my light and eventually I wanna do hard corral. I read as long as Jawfish have places to hide, the won't go airborne... Lol. But shrimp and crabs are an idea. Just gotta make sure they won't be eaten by the fish I want.

Also, does anyone recommend mail order fish? Denver is 45 min away from me, but if it's cheaper on line...

I do not have experience but it seems self-contradicting to order online.

$15 fish online compared to $20 in store
$15 + $40 shipping = $65

The only way to get your money's worth is to buy multiple fish at once, which I believe is going against adding fish slowly to your tank. I would think to only buy online if there is a really neat fish that they cannot get locally. And even then do not buy online unless you've ASKED your LFS to specifically get it for you. (got my candy pistol shrimp this way) granted it is a common shrimp but still.

This is all my opinion and speculation though :P

I think in favor of mail order you can find almost any fish you want. Locally youre limited to stock unless your store will special order you fish you want.

I ordered fish online and found the experience to be pleasant and easy. It for sure wasnt cheap, they really get you on shipping.

Yeah, forgot the name of it. Just helps filter and keep levels where they need to be. The sump is pretty big, but makes water changes so much easier...

Got some confusion going on. I've got two friends with saltwater tanks and two different situations... 1 set up his tank and the next day threw in a stone fish and has no issues. 2 set up his tank and uses nothing but tap water and his reef, fish, crabs, and shrimp are thriving.... I've had my tank for 2 weeks and I'm afraid to put anything in because I don't want it to die... Lol. My corals are doing good. I need to get some more test strips, but does it sound like my tank is ready???
