realy like the tank, I love my hammerhead as well. For the size and power consumption it rocks, and the noise level is lower than a normal conversation. I to love both hotrods and tanks...Maybe a trip from Austin to visit some family in Lake Jackson and stop by and check out the tank.

Do the drip pan in the bottom of the stand.

I have plexi on the bottom & up 3" for the sides containing the entire bottom of the stand. I have had 2 minor water spills & it saved me a big cleanup & the wrath of my wife.

Thanks everyone for their kind words. I am starting to enjoy it now that I have some life in there.

Friday I bought 5 Bartlets anthesis, a copperband, tube anenome, green bubble coral,10 fighting conch & a large frogspan.

Now I have:
5 fancy anthesis
5 bartlets anthesis
6 chromis
powder blue tang
purple tang
Clown tang
3 yellow tangs
fox face
marine betta
3 clowns
1 manderin
2 scooter blenny
hawk fish
coral beauty

Think thats all.

Tomorrow I am going to order a large Purple Long Tenticle Anenome.

Good suggestions!

For a vette guy! J/K

I am partial to wrasses but the tang will probably not happen unless I can catch my powder blue. I tried a powder brown & blonde naso but my blue chased them for 2 days & I finally got them out & brought them back to the store. You would think in 10' of tank a fish could get away....

My vette gets 32 Mpg in the frwy how about yours ! Lol
I just sold my mean large powder blue and even trying to sell my gentle giant naso tang to have my Achilles Its second try as my PBT killed my first small Achilles In qt a year ago.

Its easy to catch tang just do it when they are sleeping they are in dazed for few minutes very very easy to scoop up!
Also fairy wrasse are extremely aggressive worst than tang or angel if you don't add them together

Didn't buy it for the milage, bought it to eat vettes!!

I had a 2001 convertable C5. One of the best cars I ever owned. Comfortable, fast, built pretty good. The snake is just a weekend car. It gets about 14 vettes to the gallon! I mean miles....

They are beautiful cars. I had a 96,98 then an 01. In Houston there are so many vettes I wanted something a little more rare & after 3 in a row I was ready for a change.

Heck I still have a 79 vette that my dad bought when he was dating my mom & I was 16. He used to give me the keys when they went out of town for the weekend & he would ask me. " Do you know where Mexico is? You had better go there if you wreck it"

My Viper is an 2002, when they still looked like a viper. I got it to 165 mph on Texas World speedway.

I'd like to take the vette to the track here in Phoenix, would be fun I'm sure

My Vette still do < 4 sec 0-60 without any problem for more than 5 year ( slightly modified but nothing to brag about. it's a 07 But it's paid in full before it leaves the dealer in 06 so I can't buy another one since I am broke but happy

Where I live, corvette is not as common as porsches, mb and BMW.
I think I see more bentley than vette here. Plus I drive like a old lady now but 10 years ago when i was 23 years old and stupid, I drove 175 mph in a modified mustang bullitt ( bullitr hehehe) In the 405 frwy the worst frwy in america and nearly kill myself because it doesn't handle well. Power without control is not real power.

Back to stock list
How about some angels?

I would love some angels, just not sure which will be reef safe.

Any suggestions?

Would love a blue face but I know they are not safe.

Ordering some pearly jawfish as soon as supplier get stock list back to me.

Suggestions welcome.

Large angel never eats my other soft corals nor SPS.

Currently I have 4 dwarf angel
Trio of Brazilian flame back and flame angel
No problem with acans , chalice , Zoa and everything else I just jeep them
Well fed.
