    I did some aqua-scaping and made some more ledges and caves so that I can add more coral. I made a large cave at the top with a large ledge in front of it. I also added hammer coral and sun coral. I just have to decide on which coral I want next to sit on the upper center ledge. It is a med/high light and med flow area, any suggestions of a good piece of coral for this spot? I am saving the very top ledges for sps.
    I am also planing on selling my yellow tang and replacing him with a flame angel, I have had success with a flame in my previous reef set-up which was a 90 gal but I am curious about the flame angel in a smaller reef set-up. Has anyone had bad experiences with a flame picking on their corals or presently have a well behaved flame in a smaller reef (30-55 gal)

    Thank-you

    My water parms are:
    Calcium - 430ppm
    Alk - 8 dkh
    Salinity - 1.025
    PH 8.0
    Phosphate < 0.03ppm
    Ammonia 0.0ppm
    Nitrate < 0.05ppm
    Temp is maintained between 78.7 - 80.0

    I sold the yellow tang shortly after I got him/her. the tang was really small when I got it but when it grew the tank would be way to small for a tang.
    The firefish are a perfect fish for this size tank they do very well and have a cave that they share. I feed them the same food as the clowns (formula one' flake food) and they also tend to eat what I feed my corals aswell ( mysis, cyclopeeze, carnivoir cubes ect.)
