Well tomorrow is the day. Sitting in harrisburg wasting away the night til i testify tomorrow afternoon. So im thinking, what king of addition should i look for? I was thinking maybe one coral since im getting pretty full now. Was also thinking about a bubble tip nem even though i swore id never own one lol. Id love an invert...but i kill them off so fast it prob isnt worth it. Input time for you guys!

I think you should get a Nem, for your clowns. There's a certain kind of satisfaction from seeing them host one. You feel like such a good parent!
I think the majority of your problem with inverts is coming from that farm above you. I would consider just getting your water from a different source, if possible. After thinking about your problems, I believe this to be your Achilles heal.
Good will hunting!!

I agree with the post above me, it's probably your water since everything else is pretty much top of the line. I understand how hard it would be to get pre made water for you though..

Lol I was close to there this weekend. That fish place is nice, but I actually like some of the stuff closer to me more. There was a really nice red metallic bta at oddballs a few weeks ago, I bet it is still there. Also a bright green one at aqua world.

It's metallic.. You gotta go

Sheesh, didn't know it was 2 hours. Maybe there's someone on Craigslist who sells some nicer stuff?

Ok...so I just walked in the door. I stopped at House of Tropicals. Very happy. Spent...alot. No nem, they were all way to large for my tank. What I did get. I got an orange plating monti frag, a red symphodium to go with my blue, a cy...i dont remember its full name but carry has one and I had to have one so now I do, and a red polyp something or other...god I can't believe I forgot...I have been on the road for a really long time lol. Anyway, the last 2 are medium flow/medium light guys. They are encrusting as well. I'll talk more about them when I am atleast slightly rested tomorrow after work.

OH, I hadn't mentioned that I have been trying to figure out why my blue symphodium has been closed up recently. I got home and right there was the answer...nudibranch! Same kind that was nawing on my other one in the 36. He now lives in the refugium. Very glad I caught it before the new symphodium goes in. Which btw, I caught a mistake at the store, they had it labeled as a red star polyp. I corrected them, I was buying it anyway since I knew what it was, and they gave me 10 bucks off. Awesome.
