    On the naming the damsel....i had a blue and yellow tail that we named fiona the damsel in distress....until she started causing the distress and was banished from the tank. (went to a friend who had a small nano dedicated to her and a goby).

    No the Clowns will swim by each other but they do not act like clowns towards one another, it's kind of weird. The big Bali Picasso male is like a big dumb lab.

    The Damsel has a spot right snug down in some acro. He is the biggest ham though, trying to get an image without a Damsel is hard. Vinny(the yellow tailed damsel) is spunky but the other fish are not passive, so it may work, I sure hope it does.


    FINALLY, the light is mounted parallel. Looks much better, and it's a lot of light.

    Not parallel. But different time of day.

    Looking great Cheryl. I'd still trade your for mine anyday. Fixture and all.

    Maybe all I need (other than the extra time) is a new, cleaner setup.

    Pinned on my to do is full sump cleanup. I have a big job interview coming up and I've been studying all kinds of networking, Linux etc for this job. Wish me luck! 1st phone interview is this coming Monday!

    Excellent, good luck. :2thumbsup:

    I do love that fixture.

    I got this Strawberry Shortcake from DD about a month ago. This is why aquacultured corals are what I prefer (but I do buy wild). The SSC is already coloring up and growing very well for a new frag. In the image you can not see the pink and cream colors.

    I have had the wild Sarmentosa for over 6 months I believe. In my perfect world it would pick up some more green but it's a nice hardy acropora for a wild piece.

    Well guys and gals. I just moved, still waiting for my tank to move with me, but that tank very well might grow to be a 45 gallon JBJ RL.

    My time has been diverted else where, sorry the lack of activity.

    Lol... you know what's next?
    A big "we told you that u were going to end up upgrading!"

    Kudos to you for considering upgrading in these type of stressing situations. I read somewhere that moving is one of the most dreaded experiences, even if you're moving to your dream house.

    Good luck and I hope time becomes sufficient for you so u can set up a bigger and better tank. Soon u will b begging me to accept my swap offer :p

    Good luck! My husband is a network engineer and if I never hear the word Linux again it will be WAY too soon! Ugh! Just kidding! Good luck!
