    Looks like a gulf toadfish?

    Nice clam too. How long have you had it?

    I'm bet the Macro Algae was no accident?

    Nice Tank

    Thanks for replay, this is orange toad fish, very easy to keep, tank has no skimmer or filter, macro algae grow fast. I put a few drops Fe to stop to go them sexual 027.jpg

    Hi, thanks for replay. I love colors, plants, greens and was thinking why I should keep those beautiful algae in sump when nobody see them?
    Why I need more space for sump and nose? Plants do better job then skimmer.I had 450 nice tank with macro without skimmer. I loved it! I have some video on youtube and will post
