Just read thru you thread and makes me remember setting up my 55 last year. It gets more addictive as time goes on. My wife also tells me that I drive her crazy by always wanting to go to my LFS. But she doesn't fool me I know that she loves it to.

Haha I believe my girlfriend likes the tank too!!

Someone messages me today locally they're moving and need to get rid if everything in the tank. Here are some pictures they sent me. Should I jump on anything? My current stock is 55 g tank obviously with a fox face 2 clowns and a yellow tang.

That box fish is gorgeous, but I would be too scared of it nuking the tank. Looks like there might be a torch and/or frogspawn in there and a good sized Kenya tree (maybe?). And is that a rock anemone? That might be cool. Might wanna get those if you can. Im no coral expert, thats for sure, but if those are correct IDs, I'd try for those. The powder blue needs bigger than a 55g, and you shouldn't add another clown to your tank.

Yes, double sided sticky tape that came with them. I think it looks better without them. Not sure what i think of it yet. i cut out little doors 1 on each side of the tank but when i do zip tie them back together the front is going to be too short and i think its going to fall down and not reach the lip on the front of the tank if you follow me.

on a sour note, my fox face that i acclimated in to the tank doesnt seem to be doing well, by this I mean he is not active at all. sits in the back of the tank or slips inside a crevice in the rock. spiked up 75% of the time and when i feed once per night (mysis, bloodworm, frozen brine, every 2or3 days a peice of nori) i have not seen him eat either. maybe 3 or 4 little frozen brines the 2nd or 3rd day i brought him home. I hope he snaps out of it, I am going to test my paramaters tomorrow.

just brought home a six line wrasse and a royal gramma. The six line i have seen swimming around but cant find him now and the royal is sitting behind the pump for my hob reef octopus simmer. they have been in the tank for about 5 hours, hopefully by next week i'll see them swimming around with the other fish. the fox face still hides but have seen him out more and more as the days go on.

pics will come when i can snap a good one maybe tomorrow if theyre not hiding.

Cool additions. I got a foxface a week ago and he's very docile, more than my firefish is and was when I first introduced him. I haven't seen him really eat, but he's been picking at algae(he spits it out though). Hopefully ours both find the courage to come out more often!

Awesome indeed!

I know, I am starting to not like this fish only because I never get a chance to see him! My yellow tang for a couple days always hid when I came in to the room and now hes swimming around all the time with my clowns(that stay on the right side of the tank) Hope we see them snap out of it !
