Thanks for the compliments guys!

I do realize now he is outgrowing the tank quickly, will likely have to trade him in. Such a beautiful peaceful fish. When i first got him his top fin was severely damaged and he slowly grew it back. Pretty cool stuff, he was all alone in a 30 gallon tank at the store. My lady and i had to buy the little dude.

Right on, Thanks! Most of the corals just keep splitting or shrooms fall off rocks so they get placed elsewhere. A few sprung forth from quality live rock i acquired at my fav lfs Jojo Aquarium Sacramento, Ca! This one been a lot of fun, softie dominated for sure. Wanting to get more sps going on though.

I have a 30 gallon aquarium that use to serve as the sump! she wont relinquish the space in the living room lol I keep trying Buti ts like :deadhorse1:!!! Hehe

Heres a pic of my Eibls Angel and my Duncan Colony

Love the clowns! You know setting up a breeding system isn't all that hard. It's a lot of fun.

It's a lot of trial and error. I built one in my basement a few years ago. Here are a few things that may help.

Thanks for the links! Very informative, I plan on ordering the plankton disc next check and get this going. Clowns just spawned yesterday again, they're on a very predictable cycle.
