Hey everyone! I posted here about a month ago asking about cycling with live rock.. and someone suggested we use a jumbo shrimp. We did that and it worked perfectly, we had a spike in ammonia, etc.. then things were back to normal.
Soooo... about 2 weeks ago I went and got a pair of clownfish!!!!! Woo hoo!! I didn't want to say anything right away because I wanted to make sure they were going to be OK first. They're so cute how they are always together, I mean, ALL the time. I was afraid of the occasional bicker they were doing at first, but it seems like the bigger one has already laid down the law. The smaller one is like "yeah yeah you're the boss"!! He does this twitching thing to let the other one he is submitting (at least from what I read). Anyway, for the most part, they are inseparable!
Our next plan is to add a clearner shrimp (I love the coral banded kind), but we are trying to lower our nitrate levels first.. its around 20~ish right now. I know, not good... but we're working on it!
I promised I'd update with pics, so here we go (I hope they aren't too huge):
