You should see about burying it under rock so that its like a mini cave... or perhaps keep the snails off it so a good amount of algae grows on it... if that doesn't work maybe take it back to the lfs for somthing different like a pirate ship?

I am in shopping mode for my new build.

I am also debating on buying new bulbs for the 125g and some new corals.

I don't think I;ll be getting another fish until the blue tang is out of qt, but when I make my weekly visit to the lfs if anything catches my eye I will be on it! LOL

I know I want a midas blenny and a diamond goby. But the other addtions are up in the air. I may have him order me 3 blue reef chromis too as they will take a week or more to come in PLUS he has been qt'ing my fish in a separate system for me as a favor so it could be a couple weeks before I get them.

I'm also thisclose to ordering some fish online, one site is having a HUGE sale that I;m not sure I can pass up. LOL

I have two wishes. #1. Wish I was ready for a couple more fish and corals but Carey scolds me if I don't take it slow. #2. Wish I had more money.

On a side note, three things I have learned in the past 5 weeks of this hobby: 1. You never have enough money. 2. Your tank is never big enough. 3. You never have enough buckets.

Yes, but what a price for the critters. They ship free in Florida, but I am not in Florida. That Exquisite Wrasse is $90 at the LFS.
I am so paranoid...waiting for the shoe to drop. I don't do Internet fish/coral because it is such a risk.
