Looks like you are off to a great start

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

i wouldn't recommend an anenome just yet. if i read right, you said that you've only had the tank up for a couple of months, right? usually they need a well established tank to live in, usually recommened of at least 1 year. i didn't want to bring your hopes down because you're off to a great start, i just don't want you to waste you money on something as cool as an anenome for it to just die. also, maybe i missed it or something, but what type of lighting do you have? they need pretty good light, so that may be a factor as well. but your tank does look very nice. keep up with the good work.

My lighting:

I have two 10k bulbs. They are both CoralLife. One is Actinic and the other is plain 10k. I have VHO Ballasts (i hope i spelled that right). I got the tank, top, and stand second-hand. The man before me made his own setup to accomodate VHO bulbs. I have not yet invested in one because I am considering upgrading to a 100-125 gal setup. Money is a factor with school starting in a few weeks.

*another light bulb going on*

Spending a few bucks on a bulb wont hurt too bad. I know both ballasts function because I am have both plugged in with my current bulbs using both ballasts. I am hoping to let this setup settle a bit before adding complicated inverts. Its nice to have a foundation to work with though.

I appreciate all encouragment!

Thanks for taking the time to write

My camera runs through batteries and I get annoyed with resetting it all the time.
Use Lithium batteries.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....
