Marlin and Nemo have arrived.

Finally got the green light to get some specimens for the tank, I went out to the LFS about 10 miles away knowing they had a good stock of fish, and they are also tank bred and raised by a local breeder which I was happy to hear. I picked 2 Percula Clownfish (Maybe they are maybe they're not but that is what they are sold as). My 5 yr old daughter was suppose to pick them but I wanted to surprise her (I'll let her pick Dori), she hasn't seen them yet, my wife and had a plan and it worked, they left the house and I snuck in. I can't wait to see her face. I drip acclimated them for an hour then put them in the tank, 10 minutes later I fed them and they ate everything. They are busy checking out their new digs. Here are some pics, i hope they are OK, those buggers are fast.
