I think you would call this a 100g, a standard 90g is 48" long and yeah i could tell yours was longer. 100g sounds cooler also.

I know how you feel, i have been pretty fortunate to save up money and plan it out a couple of times. and buy all you want at first and still program some money in for corals and fish. its way more fun that way. lol even then your gonna want more so dont worry about it, it will come.

The yuma was on the far left on top. The band Pepper is an aquired taste.

We will get it full sooner than later. lol. and hey since your getting into corals. its not really needed all the time. but have you looked into maybe starting to dose cal and alk. i use bionic 2 part and its helps out alot. then you got to start testing for it though.

the bIONIC is just basically 2 different bottles and you would by hand dose probably around 30ml of each a day but it can vary a bit depending on what your system takes in. thats why checking what the alk and cal are at alot more at the beginning to make sure your not over dosing

Just wondering, I got a hippo tang yesterday, and it was swimming fine all day. Then when the blues came on, it wedge itself into the live rock. I thought it was a goner, but today its out and swimming. So I guess this is normal? Thanks for any info

My Blue Hippo does the same at night. Squeezes into a real small opening in the rocks and stays there all night.

Thanks Tim. I was worried at first, Im glad its normal for them to hide at night. As soon as the moon lights come on, its gone.

Mine stays out during the Actinics. Once they go off she hides in the rocks.
