I'd never get angry at my two sps boys for posting all over my thread. pfffft

No new pictures yet...haven't had much time to work with the tank, and we're also having a very nice algae bloom atm.

Darryle, nice to hear you've finally came to the true darkside.

Nate, how's your nano coming along? Give the cube some time, keep your chin up, things always work out in the end.

and

Gotta love algae blooms eh? The 10g is going through one now, and aiptasia are popping up I looked at most of my rock and there is aptasia everywhere Looks like I might have to let it dry out and use it as base rock and seed it with some new live rock.

Dont like the 10K's? Why not?

Oh, and the cube might be set up sooner than I though Have a read

Just what in the heck are you two going on about? I bet it's some type of Anthias. I think I *might* know the species, if it's the one that gets mentioned in Chat from time to time.

Yep...

My favorite one.

I fell in love with it a couple months ago...about January I'd say Nate?

Unfortunately, it's very hard to find. It's a very precious and special fish...rarely seen in the trade. I dont know anyone who has them around here.

I thought this was going to be an SPS tank? All I see listed are LPS. LOL. And watch that "froggie" of yours, as it will indeed attack any SPS it comes in contact with. Where are your sun polyps? I can't see them in any pics?

Liana, you should have come down for our auction a couple weeks ago. There was a ton of SPS that went through. All very nice frags, some larger sized corals, went for great prices. Most of the frags went for under $5 each. While a 12 inch birds nest pink with purple tips, went for $35.

I can't wait for the Spring auction to get some SPS for my nano. It will be up and running by then. If it ever comes in, lol. Getting a 22gal cube with a 70watt 14k Pheonix in it.

The sun polyps are a tiny tiny frag on the left side of the tank, that haven't been doing the greatest because with gymnastics season my life was pretty hectic and I didn't have much time to target feed.

It will be an SPS tank. I have the birdsnest...and yes, I know the froggie has sweepers. No worries, I've done my research.

I wish. Just send me a plane ticket and I'm there!

Cool cool...I like 14K's. I hate my 10K's. I'll be replacing them soon enough. Maybe soon we can send e/o frags.

Ferretfish- Where do you live? There is a LFS in my hometown that told me he coudl get jsut abotu any fish there is for me. I will ask him if he can possibly get a hold of them, or if he knows anyone that can get them for you.


I knwo you said they are very hard to get so I may be wrong in saying that he can get them, but the company he gets his livestock through has a contract with him and they deal solely with him, so there might be hope?

Good luck at finding those guys though. I am more than willing to help you find whatever you need for your tank, now whether I can get it to you is a different story We will have to see. You have helped me so much all ready I feel liek I owe you lol

I live in New York.

Chances he'll be able to find the fish are slim to none, but I appreciate you asking.

It's the only fish I'm really going to have trouble finding for my tank.

For $20.35 (that would be shipping cost, Priority Mail 2-3 days) I can have...

15 Nassarius Vibex Snails
5 Red Tiped Hermits

2 Large Margarita Snails

Is that worth buying or no?
