Sorry about the coral, but I am excited to see your 180 build thread. Everyone is getting new tanks! Carey with her 125 "Last Build" ...yeah right. Your getting a 180 going hack, and I am stuck waiting for POSSIBLY 2 months!!! I have no tanks to care for since I sold my 65 last weekend.

My b/f says I'm on fish crack. lol

Can you move the corals higher up maybe? i notice the clowns stay on the bottom alot in my tank, or maybe just moving it will help. Might buy you some time til you get the other tank up

Mine always stayed high, especially when the lights were off. They just floated around the top, sometimes you would swear they were dead. lol
