I have 5 mangroves growing in my cube's fuge. It's taken months and months but they are finally budding and I have the led light running opposite my main lights. I have a timer set for the leds so it runs over night and hopefully is helping keep the Ph stable.

So what exactly is ph and why is it so important?

Yep, I run the chemi pure elite in my media basket and I run purigen instead of the carbon. The filter floss is a great invention I swear, helps keep my water nice and clear.

My six line is extremely active. Never stops. He loves darting in and out of the rocks. I have seen him go through hole I never would have imagined he could fit through.

Yeah that's what I'm looking for. Would it get along with a clown, a bangaii, a jaw fish, and a royal gramma?

Just saw a picture of an orange throat pikeblenny On LA. Omg. Wow. Since I can stay settled on a stock list I'm going to throw out a few ideas and you guys choose the best one...

List A:
1 occelaris clown
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 orange throat pikeblenny
1 yellow head jaw fish

List B:
2 occelaris clowns
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 goby(pink spot or yellow watchman)

List C
1 occelaris clown
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 yellow watchman goby
1 orange throat pikeblenny

List D
1 ocellaris clown
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 yellow head jawfish
1 orange throat pikeblenny
1 goby
(too much?)

Sorry.
I love list D but 6 fish....:/

Wow that is lucky, and I just don't think my parents will let me. Plus, I don't live coastal and even if i did live in jersey or oc Maryland, it's not very good for the scuba diving I would like to do.
