well haven't updated this in a while, not too much has changed, I added a Condy Anemone, upgraded my second powerhead to a Koraline (small one) so now i have a matched pair, thats about it.

i'll have to get some updated pics.

overall though the tank is very stable, testing at zero for nitrates, nitrites and ammonia, PH has always been steady.

I might be setting up the 12 gallon for a neighbor, at which time i'll pull the damsels out and give them to her, make room for some other fish as I can afford them.

by far my favorite thing in the tank i s the anemone. it is just cool to watch, i hand feed it pieces of krill and my 4 year old gets a kick out of watching it catch the food and eat it. its been moving around alot the last few weeks, was in the same spot the first month I had it, since I put the new powerhead in it took a trip around my rock work. THis morning I was up before the lights came on and it was all inside the foot, but then it slowly came out and opened back up.

pics to come.

hey bill, what type of lighting are you using? that anemone is going to need strong lighting. i don't think a compact florescent is going to cut it.
