Aren't those manjo pest anemone? I posted pictures of those before, on the clown anemone board and it was identified as a anemone pest that was a hitch hicker found on one of my LR. I was keeping it for a while then it split and thats when I decided to remove it because it may overtake your tank.

Yeah I know, Ive done some research on the little guys, right now there not bad, if I see them start to overtake or bother other corals, then I will do something, but as for now I think there a nice addition to my livestock, and Ive read that there are many ways to killum, ie; cover w/ kalkpaste, shoot boiling water in there mouth, or Joes juice, there on one piece of rock and I see any off there rock, there dead.

Thanks though

Nice clown! I would definately like to see the refuge setup. I am planning on doing a gravity fed refuge above my display.

I already built the shelf.

You have the brightest green coraline I've ever seen. Nice work on the tank. Make sure to keep your picture diary up to date. I sure wish I did from the beginning. Oh well, live and learn.

So please critique the aquascaping, should I change something,

yesterday I had to change it up to make it more stable, cause my LMB swam onto a rock and knocked my zoos over

It looks the "shoulder" area on your Percula is darkening. Same thing happened to mine. I feed Spectrum pellets (small size)and frozen mysis (also small size) and my Percula's shoulder has darkened from a bright orange back in March to nearly total black.

Nice fish you got there. I think you will like her slick new look in the coming months.

I would think after almost 3 months my water parameters would be more stable.

Ammonia 0
Calcium 410
Alk 11.0
Nitrate 20
Nitrite 0
pH 8.1
Salinity 1.026
Temp 78.6 - 79.6

I guess everything is good, except alk is borderline high and I cant get my nitrates down, I need to start the fuge asap!

Looks nice. However that tang will get too big for your tank.
