You could use at least 1 more if not 2. That's an HOB filter right?

I is an Eclipse hood. so it has the lighting and filtration built in. I have been trying to see if I could house any corals but its not looking so hot with the current lighting so I may end up having to remove the hood completely and get a new lighting and filtration set up. Only problem is I have 2 Huskies and they shed like crazy so dog hair getting into the water is a real issue. I have no problem with getting a second PH if it will help.

Well you could build a canopy for the tank and put your lighting inside that and set on top of the tank. Then just have a slot in the back for a HOB filter?! Looks great and welcome to the hobby! Or i should say Lifestyle

Your right about the Lifestyle thing. I never thought I would care so much about a tank of water! I considered building a canopy but I know myself and I am SOOO not handy enough to build things. Im good at alot of things but building stuff is not my specialty.

also. Im going to pick up my next fish tomorrow. Ima see if they have a yellow head goby, if not I may pick up a coral beauty. Get excited!

sqrle, I have looked at the yellow headed goby. I have a 3ft tank, do you think that after a small amount of time they would have the sub straight so clean they would starve themselves to death??

I think that are fascinating things. I have a lawnmower in my smaller tank, but would love to have a pair of yellow headed gobys (gobi)

Any sand sifter would eventually need to be fed, whether it be direct or through the routine feedings. Make sure you have a fine sand grain or they can injure their mouth/gills.

What you be the food of choice for a yellow headed goby?
I also believe they should be kept in pairs, is that correct?

So I picked up a couple new additions this weekend! (See Pictures)
I think I can get One more fish then im all done. Im thinking that my ast fish will be a Coral Beauty. Would that work or is that overstocking?

Also, I went to my grandfathers house for his 80th B-Day over the weekend and he had a fish tank out in his garage. I told him about my new hobby and he gave me the tank. Not sure of the size. May be 55 or 75 gallons. It was too big to fit in my car so my brother is bringing it to me. I will probably be starting a new thread for it and will be posting all the progress.

Mine eats other foods to. I make my own food, but mysis shrimp, or brine shrimp will normaly be taken as part of their diet. They just scavenge the sand bed a lot.

Sqrle,

do you puree them and just leave them on the sand bed or is it just the leftovers from the other fish?
