**Update 9/7/13**

I went to my lrs to pickup some water for a pwc and I decided to browse the new fish stock, I just completely fell in love with this one fish in a tank alone, very active, never hid from veiw, and for the entire time I was standing and watching him he was just as curious as I was, just swimming happily and just flaunting his colors so I had to bring him home.

I got a Candy Hogfish! He's so pretty guys I couldn't resist and he was so inquisitive and active, the perfect fish for me I love fish like that. Hes got so much character! What do you guys think..?

I got a candy hogfish a month ago or so, hes awesome!
He was alittle aggressive at first but then he mellowed out.

Thanks guys I appreciate the feedback, especially with a story lol I like fish with character, with pizzazz, with eye catching color, and unique personality. I want my tank to just grab peoples eyes when they walk in and just have them be amazed at how active and free spirited my fish are and the coexistence of the entire tank , I wanna get people into the hobby the right way, through inspiration! Is that too much?

I've heard so many stories about how they got a tank from an uncle, or brand new "kit" from a chain store, and they either overstocked the tank and was never clean long enough to admire the fish themselves, or they all died through some preventable accident and it saddens me thinking that so many people just give up on the hobby because of that.

**Update 9/8/13**

I received my marineland maxi-jet 400 powerheads today and one needs an impeller I got em used, one in box and the other I'm gonna send back to marineland all i pay is the ride to and from so its not a bad deal. I faced them forward and at a 45* angle to hit the bow front and curve with it, once I get the second one back it will be a way more efficient system but for now its working really well. Here's some quick pics.
