so just a little update, i finally found parts for my ro/di machine. made a bunch of water and currently topped of my tank. I am going to do a water change next weekend and then I go on vacation from Dec9-16. I'm going with my girlfriend and her family to FL. exicted for that.

My skimmer has been, well skimming. I am unsure of the proper height to put the box. It's the reef octopus bh-100. Seems to be doing well about 20-25% gook built up inside. I'm going to empty it during my next water change, again next weekend.

My current stock:
Yellow tang
FoxFace
2 Occ. Clowns
Six Line Wrasse
Royal Gramma
1 Cleaner Shrimp
1 Peppermint shrimp
1 sand sifting sea star
1 Turbo snail
2 mic. snails

I have to get more of a CUC going, detris/diatoms have been building up. I am thinking about getting more fish after the holidays blow over.

I am looking for color and reef safe since I have 2 feather dusters, torch, bubble coral, mushrooms & misc. zoa's.

What are some active colorful fish I can add.
Thanks in advance!

My understanding is that inverts aren't safe with hawk fish, so I'd go with the flame.

will do. I'm thinking about getting 3 blue/green chromis first and then the flame. Reefs2go has them for 1.99 ea. and my lfs has them for more, probably because they are bigger in size right?

Probably. IME, the bigger the fish, the more they cost. You gotta figure in shipping costs too, though. See which way ends up being cheaper.

All dwarf angels are hit or miss with reef safe. But most of them just like one specific kind of coral.

Dwarf angels are definitely hit or miss in regards to coral. Mine at brain, zoas, nipped at the birdsnest. He liked almost all of them. I had to try though. and it gave me a reason to start the FOWLR- so I had a place to put him!

I like the dwarf angel but I guess I might have to hold off because I do not have the funds to start up another tank lol. 3 chromis it is next and a goby just not sure which one. then I'm done.

Thinking about a fuge. I do not have a sump and looking for HOB maybe. I know this will work and it comes with the pump and everything but the dimensions would fit my space but is 1g worth it? I heard the fuge should be 1/10th of the tank size.
