Thanks. I'm in high school and with sports and all of that I don't have much time to concentrate on my tanks. I really don't want to leave this hobby so to lighten the load on my shoulders, I think I'll take a break from reefs (not the SW hobby though)
so I started slacking off on maintaing...
Getting Back on Track
Hi..... haven't been on here for ages so a little update on what's happening. Tank is not looking so good as it was on these pics . I've sold about half of all the corals I have and will continue until I've sold all of them.
I was pretty set on my mind to take a leave...
Thanks lorabell!. I do have some chalice, but they're not in the picture. sorry, forgot to indetify them. 1st is a red/orange monti, 2nd is a spiral monti, 3rd is a blue milie (not ORA. unknown wild type), 2nd steve alias blue stag, 3rd is purple rim monti, 4th is sunset milie
Things were good than went down the hill and now on top again! (too long and lazy to explain since its been months since last update)
so just take my word and enjoy the pics
(sorry, updating pics)
Are you for sure on getting a larger tank though? The tang might be pusing it since triggers are messy eaters. (the give a lot of waste which turns to nitrates)The trigger is a slow grower like locoyo said, but when it gets larger, I'd worry more on your damsels than an angel.

It might require in the future. Like to clean the pump. I have a little Idea for you though. Make like an eggcrate wall box thing big enough for your skimmer to fit inside with room for it to be removed and cover the eggcrate with rocks like a rockwall.
(pic-the lines with the gaps is...
Sorry for your seahoreses :'(
hehehe lighting wattage . 800w (dual 400w on 120 ) and 500w (dual 250 on 125) + 4x110w VHO. So total of about 1740w a day. I fell your pain....only more lol. btw, I dont even want to look at the electricity bills LOL.
not quite so. There are some types that are commonly labeled as "caution", but they almost never nip. "at own risk" should apply to all fish IMO. I've seen yellow tangs, nasos that nip corals so it all depends on the fish.
Good choices are the schooling bannerfish and pyramid butterflies...
A protein skimmer removes organic compounds (nutrients).
Water change also does that, but its also meant to balance out parameters, remove pollution and other things. A skimmer is to help maintain low nutrient level by removeing the organic compuond before it becomes the nutrients.
