Thanks for the feedback. I am very fortunate to have a LFS that works with very quality products.

I went there about 6 months ago, explaining what I had and what I wanted to achieve. I was told to take as much time as possible, and never thought that was going to be such a tough challenge.

It started with some excellent live rock. Now there I draw backs, as I have learned. For every piece of coral that is growing on rocks, I have twice as many hitchhikers. Some have turned out ok, but most of them should not be there. I have caught a few crabs so far, but not enough. On a positive side, one rock has a frogspawn sprouting, along with a few mushrooms that are multiplying. This rock also has a single snake polyp, and it is very small. I have located a few small clams (or something) growing alongside some rock pieces. They may have been there all along, I have no clue

I have been doing WC's every two weeks with 10%. I have found that my salinity is a little high, so I am reducing salt amounts each water change. I try to keep my level topped off as often as I can.

Feeding is already becoming a serious schedule. The fish aren't as bad, but these clowns act like they have never eaten before!! I enjoy feeding the 2 plates I have, plus the brain coral. I have been cutting small shrimp pieces for them, and my friends are amazed by the eating techniques. (I am still am too)

Here is a picture from the last feeding.... those darn clowns again!
