New additions to the tanks :)

Start off with the 40 gallon seahorse tank

I got another female seahorse (reidi) for my birthday. She was completely black when i got her and feeding very slow (had to turn the current off every time i fed). She is now turning more yellow and is eating very very well. I'll try to take a better pic tomorrow when my lights are on again. I call her stumpy since she has a very short tail, must have gotten injured somehow in the past. $75




Now the 28 gallon nano

Got this green acropora. They had a nice blue one as well but my friend working said they are harder to care for than the green ones and that he could give me a frag of his blue one sometime. The green one is doing great so far, i glued it to a rock where it has more flow. $69


These green duncans used to be $30 per head but have since dropped in price to $10 per head so i figured I'd get a couple. $20 total


New ricordea, saw the bright green mouths and had to get it. $30


Also got two new picasso clowns. Tried to take pics but I turned the lights off to reduce stress and they didn't turn out. Will post some tomorrow hopefully. $90 each.

And lastly the 260 gal tank

two new goatfish. One is eating for sure, other its hard to tell but is still looking healthy so must be eating something haha. Thought one died after a few days but found him in the wave box $30 each



Mandarin. She is very shy so far so i haven't gotten a great picture, she hides every time i come near with the camera. She is very large for a mandarin which is great for our tank and is also eating brine, mysis, and blood worms. $30


We also got an achilles tang today. No pictures since the lights have been out so I'm hoping tomorrow he will venture out so i can get a shot. He is beautiful and about 5-6 inches. $189


Hope everyone enjoys, I certainly am enjoying our new purchases so far!

I love the acro you have. It looks so awesome. The duncans are very nice as well.

Wow. So pretty. Jeez, I knew saltwater was expensive, but I didn't know how expensive. Maybe that's why dad said no saltwater. Lol.

They all look so pretty. Enjoy them!

I can't even decide which is my favorite! They are all so beautiful! I can't wait to see the clowns.

Excellent shopping trip!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks! Here's a few pictures of the clowns...none of the achilles yet, hes still hides when i come near. These ones aren't the best, some kinda blurry.














The smaller guy ate this morning already, i will try again later and see if the bigger one will show any interest.

Achilles Tang pics

Finally i got some pictures of the achilles tang! They are not very good because i had to hide and try to take them from afar. He still hides when you get too close to the tank. On the plus side he is eating algae sheets, flake food, and even frozen brine, mysis, and blood worms.
