    Hi,

    I've moved most of my corals from my 125 to my new 120 except for some that I have no room for. It'll be a FOWLR with some softies. The corals could be snack for my future butterflies, but they're cheap. -xenias, buttons, leathers, etc.

    For my 125 when it was a reef and how I started would be here :)

    Not done yet. I haven't done at rockwork..just dump em in there for now. I was going to clean the sump today, but too tired from yesterday. It currently has two clowns and a lawnmower (lawnmower was suppose to be in my new 120, but he refused to get out of his rock. Even when I take it out of the water. Also lost my Purple Stripe Pseudochromis. I couldn't find him.

    The tank has settle down a bit and everything looks good now. I'll post pics tomorrow. I tried cleaning the sump, but broke it :) Lickily I have a spare one, but unable to use my ASm because its too big.

    Well, I don't know if this is a good option (I bet I'll have a lot of people say no on this:)) or whether it'll survie or not (i'm sure it'll eat), but I just ordered from someone a list of fishes for my 125. Don't know if all of them are avialable though.

    1-Aurigia Buttterflyfish (completely not reef safe :))
    1-Teardrop butterflyfish (semi)
    1-moorish idol (this is what I meant I'll get a lot of no's, but its on sale so give it a shot-the idol should already know how to it when its shipped :))
    1-naso

    so thats it in my 125. Can't wait for the shipment

    PH-8.1 (I've added buffers so should be 8.3 tomorrow)
    KH-9
    Nitrate-0
    Phosphate-0
    Ammonia-0

    I think the idol will be alright in these water parameters. So now the only problem is acclimating it right.

    checking calcium and magnesium right now.

    All the other fish died. Long story short, they got ich. So here's some new ones :p

    One of the LFS in my area had a sale so I got these fishes. No corals this time though. My main reef is already packed and my 125 is not to have any more corals than whats in there.
