Which sponges? The ones around the return? Or the ones in the skimmer itself?

thanks you have been a huge help. I know what you mean by being held hostage, i have an 88lbs Dalmatian that thinks he is a lap dog. Are you running fowlr or reef, and how long has your tank been running

Ok i would love to talk stocking. I was thinking

1 or 2 smaller clowns (for my daughters)
2 pajama cardinals
and maybe something else would love ideas/opinions
would also love a peppermint shrimp or fire shrimp and also a cuc but have not researched what snails are best so some input would be great as to what everyones opinions are. Thank you for input head of time

PJ cardinals are boring IMO they just kinda float there. Check out a dottyback's... They cruise around the rock and are awesome to look at. Theres always gobies too (lots to choose from) that are cool, and are good color splashes... I would check out live aquaria dot com for some
others!

I think it looks ok but keep in mind you need to stack the rock so it can allow plenty of flow through and in between the rocks...
