Thanks josh!

It's a lot of time and effort to get it set up but once you get it going the maintenance on a small tank like this is very simple. I top off the tank daily with RO water (you can get an Automatic top off system for this if you want) and then I do a 1 gallon water change weekly. And of course feeding and such but that's not hard so it's really rather simple :)

I've had a few aiptasia anemones sprout up but those aren't really desirable anemones so I got rid of them haha. I was thinking about a bubble tip anemone but Idt I have the room now :0 I was hoping my clown would host my frogspawn but he has shown no interest in it yet :/

Yea I heard that stuff works well but I have aiptasia X. I've had to use it twice now because the first time I used it more small ones popped up a week after but after this second time I used it it seems to have worked

Yeah the clown will more than likely not host the frogspawn. Have you gotten the goby yet? Interested in seeing the luck with that, I've read horror stories. How's the clown doing? Do you plan on upgrading to bigger thanks once she gets around the four inch mark?

Lets see some updates?!

Josh - the frogspawn has to go sadly due to the yellow clown goby nipping at it :/ my girlfriend got the YCG for me for Christmas and its doing great and swims around with Larry all the time :) it has been named Moe because my mother is naming things to create the three stooges cast in my tank haha. I most likely won't upgrade, just rehome if it grows too big. Will make an update here soon!

Nina - thanks so much! My fire eel had become rather unsocial so I took it back to the lfs so it could have a happier home :/ I took down my 29 and moved all my fish to the 75 and my little zig zag eel is doing great :)
