Carey, have you considered keeping either the 20 or biocube after you upgrade and doing dwarf seahorses or pipefish?

I have given the seahorse thing a thought, but honestly, I find them a bit creepy....not sure I would want to keep them. lol

And pipefish are kinda gross looking...I am soo particular aren't I? LOL

I like the names, but i am going to name one of my fish MUFASA. best name ever.

And why dont you like those gobys?! I like their weird body shape, and since there is soo much color in an aquarium, i like them! Lol its ok though. Not EVERYONE has my eye for awesomeness 8)

+1 to carey. I cant look at seahorses long enough to take a picture, much less keep them. Unique but ugly

LOL I like the shatner one, nice pull! I don't as a habit name my fish, but I do have a few named. It just happens...like my b/f saying Pootie "Tang" referring to the old chris rock movie with wanda sykes and the name just stuck. lol

And yep, the 90g will be FOWLR. I already have the stocking pretty much down and it should be a nice tank. Very active I'm hoping. Also not gonna go with alot of rock hopefully so it will have an open feel to it.

Lol Pootie tang! Reminds me of something off of an old looney toons show. And that's awesome! I like the look of a spacey fowlr because the remind me of the peaceful ocean bottom. It's funny because when I see a reef tank I think relaxing, but not peaceful because of all the stuff going on. With a spacey fowlr I think of a quiet peaceful place... Haha.

I was wondering about that, do you glue the live rock together?? Or just stack it and stuff?
