Good to see this tank is still coming along Can't wait to see it all finished.
+1 haha. My 5 year old calls them "awesome-llaris" clown fish after years of reminding her that Nemo was just his name not his type.

+10,000. I correct every single person I hear call them a "nemo" no matter what age. "Awesome-llaris" is possibly the greatest thing I've ever heard though. If I heard a 5 year old say that I'd probably faint.

She's a smart one. Both my immediate LFS are women owned, and both say my daughter is their favorite customer haha. She is usually the first to notice something weird happening in our tanks (uhm, DAD! This looks funny!)

Mine too. If you're not already at school for it check out the UMaine Orono program for it, it's fantastic. Especially if you're interested in aquaculture.

Well, get good grades and when it comes time to check out colleges I can't recommend this school enough. It's where I go and I love it.

I looked it up and it looks Finntastic, the problem is that it is pretty far from Greensboro, NC.

One thing I highly recommend is going to community college for 2 years. You save yourself (or parents) in excess of $20k depending on what 4 year your looking at. Plus you can take classes that will transfer to the 4 year school and save more money.

I think you will find they will eat just about anything! Not a picky fish at all, and most are pigs IME! I only feed frozen fish food. Others like pellets and flakes I suppose for the convenience, but I don't like that alot of them are full of phosphates. All my fish like mysis shrimp. I also feed marine cuisine and prawn roe (frozen). Again all my fish eat this as well. Only thing dry I feed is Reef Chilli, and that's for the coral and my dragonets eat it as well. The shrimp are gonna be about the same. Shrimp eat it all! Never owned a sexy shrimp though so can't really say there.

Thanks Paul I will stick to frozen. I use it on my freshwater just not as a main staple.
