A rock dweller :). I have a sand sifting goby on order to complete my fish capacity. Also have an anemone ordered from a local breeder here. He is trying to get them to move off a rock to bring them into the store. I couldn't get the flavias picture last night when the moon lights came on its tenicles were out and it puffed up huge! I also bought a new stand for the tank. I'm trying to decide if I should paint the background or just get black paper. I was thinking paint so salt creep wouldn't destroy it but that would be a pain with everything in the tank :/

That is an awesome little tank :D makes me want to Switch my 40B over to Salt water, but I cant afford the lighting and all not to mention I have to drive an hour and a half just to get to the closest place that sells Salt water stuff lol. My LFS is all fresh water stuff.

O well, some day :D


As for the paint, why not use a roller? Move the filters off to the sides while you roll on your black paint, once its dried to the touch then move your filters back to the back of the aquarium? I know thats what some one else did on another forum I am on. Cant remember if his was Fresh or Salt though but if you get a fast drying Latex paint it shouldn't take to long to dry to the touch then move the filters back to where they were. As long as all goes well I am planning on using black latex paint on the back of my 40B and my 55 gallon.

Any way, Nice tank. Its looking pretty dang good :D

Haha it's a build in progress, it's hard to get anything right now with the baby on the way. It's hard talking a pregnant woman into spending money on coral lol!

It's coming along though, not as fast as I'd like but were getting close :) I'm catching mollie sitting in front of it watching everything more and more now so it's getting there!
I just bought a really nice stand for the tank but need to make some adjustments to it before I put the tank on it. Hopefully more updates coming soon!
