Some new photos of my 54g and 9g tanks

I haven't posted anything in a while so finally got around to it.

I've had my 54 reef running for over 2 years now, and had posted on it previously:

And I started a 9 g nano early this year:

Here's a couple new pix of the nano. A couple of the orange rics have just split ...

I had to move the feather duster to the nano because my large clownfish was tearing it to pieces. What a bully he is.

And I have a couple of additions to this tank, I'm thinking its about full now. I just got a small cherry red lobo brain from F&S Divers Den, and decided to try a Potter's angel. Both just got put in the tank this week.
The Potters is very healthy and picking at everything but I haven't gotten him to eat prepared food yet.

LOL thx Kannin I'm looking at your interests, ain't it the truth !?

Just switched out the pump in my nano, I can't believe how much flow rate I had lost in just a few months even rinsing it out. I have to break that pump down and see what the deal is.

I got the same tank too and I like how you filled the back corner.

Where is your overflow?

Filet - thanks I wanted to make this tank dedicated to rics but I had to accommodate some outcasts from the 54g.

Reefer - no overflow, hence all the stuff in the tank (skimmer pump etc.) I would definitely rather have a reef ready tank. Oh well, next time ...

Just had to bump this thread to say, the new Potters was searching near the top for food and I got him to start eating flake food already.

On day 3! Was purchased through LiveAquaria. I had great luck this time!

Hey thanks sean. Unfortunately the Potters is munching on the big patch of eagle eyes. The mother colony is pretty closed up right now. Wish he had a taste for the limes they are so aggressive.

I've started spot feeding them when I'm spot feeding the lobo, which unfortunately is STN'ing around the base.

The rics are really happy in that nano, the oranges have split multiple times.

Another funny thing that's happened is that the mushroom leather has been pretty mad ever since I swapped out the Seio for a Koralia. It doesn't extend like it used to.
