Redid the rock today, like it better, more caves and hiding places. I'll probably fiddle with more though before I'm satisfied. Still lots if cycling time left.

Been working on stock list for when it's ready. This is what I think we going to do:

1 Firefish
1 oscellaris clown
1 flame hawkfish
1 yellow head jawfish
1 half black angel (from 55gal tank)
Snails
Hermits

Anyone with experience with these guys see any problems with this list?

I like the half black too, the orange on him is really pretty, not a fish that I see in every tank. The bad part was he was chomping on several corals and they died. didn't want to get rid of him, so when we decided to change the 30g to SW, I decided to put him in there. Took all the rock down yesterday to catch him (that sucked, lol) and he's in qt tank till the 30g cycles. Just don't want him killing any more coral- its too expensive for it to be a snack for him.

You'll love the flame hawk! I've had one before and they are funny! LOL! They are very peaceful. I've heard that they can eat hermit crabs and snails as well as some ornamental shrimp. I never had an issue with mine nipping at my shrimp but that's not to say they won't. They also like lots of rock to perch on.

When I worked at a whole saler I came across one day in our shipment a large mantis shrimp. He was cool for awhile but started to beat on the tank so I harp get rid of him. . Def the most unique thing I have had.

I've seen pictures of those things, don't really get why someone would have something that will kill/eat every single thing that you put in the tank. How so you even clean the tank? Id be afraid to put my have in there! Maybe it's a guy thing? IDK. Some are colorful, but kinda creepy IMO. Hey, to each his own, I guess!!

Well they are put in small tanks all by themselves so they dont eat things that they arent supposed to.... You clean it with an algae scrubber and im sure they hide once you put your hand in the tank. I think they are awesome

Day 4 of cycling, here's test results:
Ammo: 4
Nitrite: 0.25
Nitrate: 10

While cleaning out 55g canister today, placed some old filter media into 30g filter. Hopefully that will help with progress of cycle. It's coming along!!
