nice setup..i am a big fan of the cleaner shrimps..lysmata species are always pretty in my opinion as well as usefull..maybe i can hook you up with some more live rock if you wtill need some pieces for that back wall.and if you dont mind my asking why the missing board under your hex? is it for a future overflow?looks like your prepearing for an apocalyptic day as far as the contents of your shelving units.not your average reefer....

cleaner shrimp are great inhabitants and he seems to do well in my tank, i hope to get more of them in time.
live rock is always needed.
the missing board could be claimed as forethought for the needs of an overflow (that has been planned from the beginning of this tank), but in reality its because i used 2x8's and not 2/4's so it messed up the shelf, but im just ghetto like that, everything is a work in progress, im good like that...
ex-army infantry, lots of toys from back then, i trade that shiite as well...

i dont see any of your fish.do you have pics of your fishes in action?i dont tend to have many fish as i am kinda an invert lover at heart.dont get me wrong i do like the fish.i was hoping since you have brittle and serpent stars i could get a feel of what might be tank compatible with those bad boys.and i hope you will let us know if there are any....star/fish related aggresion.

got a blue damsel, 3 bar gobies and a bicolor goby iirc (not big on scientific names it seems), and thats it as far as fish go.
i have seen no real aggression from my green brittle, the damsel even likes sleeping in caves with it, which i was wary of at first, but if anything the damsel is more aggressive towards the brittle star than the other way around.
the gobies refuse to be in pictures, but the damsel is happy to show himself, but really i need a better camera (dont we all)...

an old phone pic of the damsel, he rules the tank with an iron fin...

that rock is pretty burly.it certainly fits a space up in your tank.that cleaner is doing his quality control yeah.not to be lame but could you get a picture of the macro that came in on it?it looks like a differnt type of halimeda and i would love a piece of it if you could spare.nice purple on that rock too.hope you get a hitch hiker or two.and no not aptasia.

a bad pic from above.

i will most certainly bring you a cutting of it and it does seem to be different than what i have seen in your tanks...

so far i have been spotting filter feeders mostly, little and medium feather dusters.

SWEEET! i forgot the feeling of having real nice live rock that can have all sortsa hitchikers.even bringing in a differnt type of duster you dont have is pretty cool.and no rush on the cut as you just got the piece.carefull those barred gobies might undermine it and claim it there own.

actually they seem to be in hiding now because of the change, but i removed my zoomed powerhead after fighting to get the bicolor gobby out, he kept hiding inside, refusing to leave even when removed from the water, stubborn bastard now owns the cave on the rock, its now his mountain of power, lol...
i am somewhat paranoid of something like that as the green star has chosen a spot directly beneath the rocks center mass, but all seems solid, we will see...

my older peppermints are prett unerving when they clean my cuticles while i am servicing a pump. cleaners are getting to be more spendy as of late.and now when you find them for a reasonable price they are not quite as big as your prawn.
