Nice. Sounds like you are in the home stretch.

Well, went to the LFS yesterday and picked up some food, a pair of Clowns, a Coral Beauty Angelfish, and a small CUC. The guy threw in a small head hammer coral to give a try.

All in all, I hate this tank now. I can't get a good picture for anything with the curved front glass. Nothing is sharp. I might look for a standard RR 75g and move all this over to that.

Anyways, here's some pics that I did get.

The bigger of the two clowns. These were both TR so I hope the colors start to pop more with a better diet and home.

You are the second person I've heard that doesn't like their bow front. I think I will avoid purchasing one.

I have a bow front and love it, I find that you get a better picture if you go up close to the glass with the camera and auto focus!

I have no problems in with my 55 FW taking photos with my Canon 5D, extension tubes, and off camera flash. I have to be so close to the curved glass on the bow front that it distorts the image to badly. Sucks, but I'll just have to live with it for now until I can get a 100-160mm macro lens.
