Thanks! I went to the lfs today to spend $40 on some small frags and just to look and left spending over 200$ fml. Pics to come. I got 2 green candy came coral frags. 1 has 3 heads one has two. I got a frogspawn which I've wanted for so long happy I got it. There was a bunch of talk that they're endangered now so I got one while I can bc the lfs said they wouldn't be getting anymore in. I picked up a 6 line wrasse and a green mandarin. I know they're difficult but he was eating brine shrimp at the lfs and I got amphioids and Copepods just incase.

Yeah, I've done that many times. Lol. "I'm just gonna look." Lol.
Love frogspawn, mine took about a week to fully open up, so just be aware that it might not look the same as it did in the store for a little while.

That's what I figured. I moved him around a couple times and flipped a rock to put the frag piece in a hole. It's kind of at the top with some flow this should be okay. I only have 250 gph circulation pump on the opposite side until I get my 2 hydor 750's in the mail

I have this brain coral (I believe) can I get a positive ID and it swells up looks like its going to pop this picture doesn't do justice. Is this normal?
It actually won't let me post a picture for some reason it says I've maxed out my space? Pics are on the precious page. No pic then if it swelling. Only at night when 8 led moonlights are on

In 1-2 months I am interested in getting more fish to my stock. Currently I have a yellow tang, 6 line, clown & green mandarin. What are some good schooling fish I can have in my 55g tank besides blue green chromis?

Cardinals. There are several types.

They're not big swimmers, although they are fast when they wanna be. They kinda hover, but are usually out front and visible. I have 2 bangaii. Other than chromis and cardinals, there aren't a lot of schooling fish appropriate for a 55 that I can think of.
