A view from the end of the tank while sitting on the loveseat.

Great pics Dawn! I like the loveseat view. I don't recall seeing it from that angle before. How's the fish community doing? Everyone still getting along?

Thanks! Yeah, I was really sad about the clam and it happened really fast. I have 2 scallops in the tank and they are fine so I am not really sure what happened.

Thanks Michael. I have taken pics from the loveseat before but I did change the rockwork a little on the left side of the tank which makes it look different.

The fish community are doing fine with everyone getting along well. I did lose Linus a while back and not sure if he was bullied to death by Marmalade or if he just died for other reasons. I will not get any more combtooth Blennies while I have Marmalade. He never shows aggression toward any other fish.

I also lost Samson so that was sad. The bump on his tail had gotten quite large and no doubt was the cause. I definitely enjoyed my 5 years with keeping seahorses. They are marvelous creatures.

The tank system is running great and now is extremely low maintenance. The fuge seems well established at this point and does the heavy lifting of the bulk of the nutrient export.

Yes, he had that bump on his tail for about a year. Usually any bumps or air bubbles under the skin indicate an imbalance in their system so so knew it was only a matter of time.
