I love duncans, can't live without one anymore. I ordered more rock, it being on sale sure helped, so that I can pick and choose on what pieces I want in which tank. Having 50 lbs for a 55 and 36 just isn't enough. Anything extra I'll put in my sump or something.
Nice!! Sounds like you'll be getting a nice variety of creatures.

Ok, All of my tests are exactly where I wanted them to be today...except my old friend salinity. 1.029. Good enough for government work at this point. I moved the chalice and acan back into the 55. I left the worm brain in the 36 where I am expecting it to die. I'd rather my established system take care of it if at all possible.

Even though I have 50 lbs of caribbean live rock headed my way, I have continued to ponder my aqua scape. I want to have an open sandbed in the middle of my tank. So far, it is going well. But, this might limit everything I want in the tank. Considering a mag rock for on my back wall. Not sure though, since this would shade the sandbed where I want corals...Early stage of thought on this one. Aqua-Mags LLC for those that don't know what I'm talking about.

This is another option for mounting frags on the glass and it's a heck of a lot cheaper. lol

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

Yeah the frag mags are cheaper from brs but those rock magnets are cool and would be a great way to add more coral to my 55 without taking up the already limited space.

Agreed on cheaper carey. If i end up going that route, ill prob end up making my own since ill have some spare lr from this order and i always picked carib lr for how flat/archy it is. Would be an easy creation.

As for the worm brain, im fairly certain its dead...but well see. Also have fear the chalice is working on it as well. New bleach spot today...but faint. Quite frustrated all this saltwater knowledge and im failing quite hard atm.

Just bought a new aqueon pro heater. Unbreakable ftw. On my way to see about my clowns...

Guy at the LFS goes "you know they are more aggressive right?" I tried hard not to laugh at him...I just said I know. Lol. Not only that, they were put on sale! 20 bucks off. WINNING!
