My single Clown fish excavated the sand down to the glass. Then got bored an moved to the next spot and did it all over again, and again, and again.

Your Clownfish are looking good!

Those Palys look brighter than the group my old lfs has!

Oh I really hope they donít start playing that game, that would get old quick. So far they just make a little divot and hunker down for the night.

Oh wow, that is excessive. These 2 are way to tiny for anything like that I believe though. Where they enjoy doing it is where I was thinking about putting a small elegance coral but not sure on that yet.

20g cube : A Reintroduction to the Reef

I set up my temporary light schedule to run at nights so Iíd be home to watch it all while itís only on for 4 hours. Going to start with 1 hour of peak with a 90 minute ramp up and down starting at 730. I set my color preference and then dragged it down to 20% power or so to start and Iíll start going up from there once I get corals in.

Tanks first sunrise

Also first time hands were really all the way in the tank and it felt like old times as the female (or at least the one that will become the female) attacked me non stop. Gotta love clowns, sheís gonna be a terror Iím afraid, heís been hiding ever since

They can be outright mean. They will calm down.

Well the tester zoas have been going strong for a little over a week now, 2 of which are moving up to the main scape, the other 2 are going to go around back and hopefully take over the back side/right corner area. Going to the lfs in a bit looking for a couple hermits and possibly a shrimp. If I see a yasha pistol combo Iím 100% grabbing them, if not may grab a frag or 2, kinda want a toadstool or something to get a little movement in the water.
