What type of lighting are you using? You may have said before, but it is not in your profile. I only ask because some say clams require MH lighting which is why I have avoided them.

Everything is looking great though! You should put up some wide angle tank shots. Is it sitting in the middle of the room?

Now I know why you said you are spending $500/week. Since I started corals i the last month I have been spending $30-100/week for my 90g.

Hey it could be drugs or other womwn!..or so I tell my wife(finacial manager)

The tank separates the great room from the foyer. All lights are 250w 14K MH. Spending should slow down before much longer. I should only be stuck with a maintainance bill then. However new 2000+gal FOWLR tank plans are in the near future (if I add on to the house).

I know my job has paid for the last 700 dollars of corals in my tank. We have this thing where we do safety audits at the plant and earn bonus bucks which we can redeem at our discretion. I love my job.

Move it to the sand, that is where they prefer to be. Also they are not very fond of intense lighting(MH), so the extra space between the coral and the lights would be beneficial IME. Good luck!
