I transferred some old rock with the new and my shrimps and snails and zoos only lost 1 snail so far. Shrimps are very happy and actually eating the die off on the new live rock bonus.

some updates
I have ironed out alot of little probs over the last couple of days and all is now well.
the pics are of the tank with the halide mounted.

all the zoos I transferred are doing really well.

I have been thinking alot about anemones and although i designed this to be for a magnifica. The current is strong (but not alternating flow may be a problem)

It is however pretty random as I have the nanostream crossing the return flow.
I am now thinking that a shorter tentacled anemone will be better.
I have time and dont plan in putting anything in for a month (The rock is cured and the water from an old system) or so
A real dilemma for me I am considering a gigantea now or a crispa

Arghhh help.

I am a big fan of Crispas. I had one that was a joy to own for over 9 months and a power outage ended that relationship! Make sure you have a back up power source for if you are away.
