Salty's KISS

Keeping it simply: nothing too dear; letting things grow out large; a lot of like little fishes; a lot of movement; and easy maintainance. Basically i'm keeping my ego out of this one, no regrets, no beartbreaks... the tank was designed well enough for it to stay alive on its own for nearly two years and I now we ars slowly tweeking it better and more resilient to outages, heatwaves, and the like.

In mid March everything was cleaned up and cycling from a long fallow that turned brackish. I saved the tank in time to keep Sanjay's nepthae? going. Now the tank is about stocked in corals; the only primary coral to add is maybe an elegance. The collonista, stomatella, brittle star... survivors are all starting to repopulate. The biggest surprise was the bta an 8" nem turned into 2-8", 1-6", 3-4", 2-3" in three months! Next nice surprise is how kool my pink nepthae is! Finding a larger colt at a fair price helps the tank feel more like our plans for size and movement so very early into it's growth.

Next is to see if tapatalk helps post pictures without using photobucket or thumbnails.

Took less than 5 min for them to dive in, and 20 min to find eachother; but, they still aren't certain about dating.

Tapatalk loads something like fb; I'm assuming that they store it. I just click the pucture icon, tell it where to look, pick a file and hit send. I have not figured out yet how to tell it to load more than one file at a time, its fast but i have to go back and forth to place more thsn one photo per post.

I added seven other fish yesterday in addition to the anemonefish. I want to change the thread title to "Salty's Fish Tank!"

I would say it is now a blenny tank:
Meiacanthus kamahora (kamahora fangtooth) 2
Meiacanthus nigrolineatus (blackline fangtooth) 4
Meiacanthus smithii (disco fangtooth) 3
Amphiprion bicinctus (Red Sea two stripe clownfish) 2
Chromis viridis(bluegreen chrmis) 8
Gramma loreto (royal gramma) 3
Zebrasoma scopus 1

I thought that the anemone was looking nice yesterday, but the camera picked up apperations from the low-e (tempered?) glass.
