I re arranged it quite a bit too so there is more flow. My nitrites are at 5ppm as of a night ago so I'm sure they are on their way down now. When ammonia and nitrites are 0 ill do a water change then add some of my first fish.

I've enjoyed watching the progression of your tank, it's looking really good and well thought out.
Nice job.

I Just ordered my fish and they will be sitting at the LFS for atleast 6 weeks so I can observe them before purchase. Here are the pics of my centerpiece fish

A yellow tang is required by my father but I may add a purple tang too :)



A male Blue throat trigger fish (reef safe)


And a female blue jaw triggerfish (reef safe)

I think the family and I came up with something. Since I sold corals to get this guy he is now named "Barter" :) everything looks good so far he is still getting used to the 90 gallon opposed to the little box he was in.

he is still very shy. every tme I walk by the tank I hear a little splash from him darting across the tanks surface. I tried to feed him today and he ate a little bit. I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before he is a little tank terror. :)

hah me too. I will be upgrading the lights to 400 watts of T-5 HO with individual reflectors in the coming months and also by then I will have a few more corals in there.

After I get back from my N.C. excursion this coming week I will be adding a Kole tang and a Lawnmower blenny to the tank.

I saw a lawnmower blenny at the petco here, I thought he was a pretty interesting looking guy. Can't wait to see yours.

picture time

Here is barter. He has colored up really nice over the past week




Here is the best picture I can get of Debbie my new Kole tang. She is already eating stuff off the glass and rocks :)




And last but not least is my poor lawnmower blenny that was almost beatten to death by my 6 line wrasse. He has been in the same place most of the day breathing heavy, but in the past 10 mins he has started to swim up the glass and pick at some algae I hope he does well in here.
