my guess is the tank has only been setup since February 29, 2004 that is when i found the first topic about starting your tank with the bio sphera..

Ok here we go. Not trying to damper your tank or plans for your tank. But first of all your tank has not even been going for a month. You already have a Bubble tip anemone. Those are supposed to be placed in a MATURE tank. Second you are already placing coral in a tank that is not even a month old. I wouldn't be suprised if they make it. You are completely rushing into this. The key to a saltwater tank is waiting. When you rush you waste alot of money and kill alot of livestock. I think you should have done some research before you started buying all of this stuff. And no it may not be all your fault. You say that your dad is buying alot of stuff. Well maybe you need to fill him in on some basic guidelines. Finally with the tank only being barely a month old you should have kept just the damsels in there for at least a couple months then maybe one or two more fish. Then after 4 or 5 months i would say then get some genrally hardy corals. In no means and anenome yet.

Hey i am just trying to help you out and save you money. Because as people have told you. You will have problems with the overstocking. And i think you will have problems with the fact that you are adding stuff after not even a month. You know i have my tank running for 6 months before i added my first coral. Which was a mushroom rock. You have already added an anenome for. CRAZY. Maybe you are one of the 1 in 5,000,000,000,000 people that can get away with this with no problems at all.

Sorry, but I have to agree with everyone else. Your tank is way overstocked. I did not even think of adding anything for the first six weeks. the bio-load you are placing on the tank is extreme for even mature tanks. It is time to start thinking of the health and well-being of the livestock. I know it is hard to do, but you need to slow down. You are on your way to a major tank crash. I appreciate your enthusiasm but use some common sense. As for your Flame...you need to try a variety of foods, frozen shrimp, Angle Two, seaweed salad, flake. My eats them all now. just find something they like and go with it, in the process try not to increase your Nitrates by over-feeding. Please listen to everyone that is relying to you and liven-up on your livestock.
