My new lawnmower is actually alot like my old one. lol he is finally eating everything I put in the tank, he seems to really like bloodworms too. he is always creeping around in the rockwork watching me, even if i don't see him thats what they do! hehe..

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

LOL. I just stare at mine and he stares back. It seems like we are having a blinking contest, but he always wins, .

I just can't wait to get this ich away and begin stocking with lots of corals and some more fish. I really want a Torch, a nice big one like the one in your 125g. Any recommendations on fast growers to help make the tank look more like a reef?

Thanks!

My biggest and most "aged" looking corals are my gsp, my palythoas and my hammer coral. Oh almost forgot, my montipora has grown at least 500% in less than a year. I think the paly's give it the more established look as they spread from about 3-4 horrible polyps to at least 50 polyps now and have taken over an entire rock, the same for the gsp. I;ve been rotating the rocks they are on slowly so i get complete coverage. I really should be fragging them, they grow so darn fast. lol

btw, I have spent numerous nights trying to win the staring contest with my lawnmowers, and not once have I won. It's like they have nothing to do but stare at ya. rofl

Nice suggestions with the corals. I will definitely look into them.

Thanks!

OMG, Clearly there are some weird people in the world......with soo many of us having staring contests with our fish... LOL I do with my purple fire fish.

So let's see that's:

Fish - 3

Humans - 0

Anyone want to know who's gonna win? LMAO


Sorry, had to point this out. Maybe start a thread and have everyone post their win/loss and keep track hehehehe.

Do you guys have any tips on cleaning the overflow? I can see some gunk on the bottom of where the water comes in.

Thanks!

I just deal with the little bit of algae on there and syphon the waste out with some airline tubing when I need to clean it up.
