What a huge improvement to your tank! Where did you get that rock?

I was a little concerned when I saw your tank full of rocks, but you've come a long way.

Thanks

I got the rock from reefcleaners.org

ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Florida Reef Rock (50lbs - Free Shipping)

I believe Carey recommended it to me. It is very nice rock and cheap.

Thanks. I'll keep that link and reference this thread if I decide to turnover my freshwater tank in a few years.

So I got two green chromis today to go with my other one.

My water parameters are so perfect.. more perfect than they've ever been (thanks to that marine buffer I used!). I haven't touched inside the tank for about a week. Trying to leave it alone! Actually I'm skipping my PWC this week and going to start doing it every other week.

Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate are all 0 - again, I don't know how I got zero nitrates but I am not complaining. I do have diatoms again so maybe this explains it.

pH is 8.3, dKH is 12 (going to aim for this to be 10, i had a faulty test kit!). Temp is 79F

In a week or two, providing I keep the water parameters stable, I am going to order a pair of baby maroon/yellow clowns

Actually I may go with a pair of black/white clownfish instead of the maroon/yellow clownfish.

Because the maroons are listed as agressive whereas the black/white's are semi agressive.

Trying to keep a peaceful tank! Though those maroon yellow clownfish are so beautiful.

My LFS has a full sized mated pair of black and white clownfish for $90. Is that a bad price?

ORA or wild? if it's wild then you paid a bit much if it's ORA then you got the going rate.

I paid $80 for my pair of ora's. Much better choice over the maroon clownfish in my opinion. My two black clowns are like little babies, they are scared of everything lol

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