    Mines a 60 litre i have 2 clowns that goby and a pepermint shrimp, 2 red leg hermit crabs and lots of corals i know im over stocked but my parameters are good its well looked after and my fish are happy the goby even cleans the clowns as they do in the wild. If the fish are happy and behave natural thats all that matters to me id say it would even benefit you to get 1.

Oh ph is always around 8.2

    I'm down to checking mine 2-3 times a week. I am overly paranoid lol, plus the tank is not that old, I've only had fish and everything for about 2 months now, and at one point in time, not too long ago, I was breeding pods in there so I know there is extra micro algae and if it dies it will create a huge spike I'm guessing. I'm thinking I've gotten the majority of it out by now though with water changes, I've not added any more.
    Why don't you like your zoas anymore? I think mine are kind of cool, they came on this tiny frag and there are two colors (green and red). I just don't like knowing that they can be poisonous lol.

    Not the best pics, but it is what it is :) I realized I had a pick from far away of the brackish tank, that I took trying to take a pic of my mandarin in my sw tank...that is the first pic.
    I also threw in a pic of what it looks like with the blue light on vs regular light and some side views.

    The tank has to be built around the fish lol. I know he likes to hide, I've had him about a year now! The pipe is in there for him, the rock is in there for him, the sand, regular gravel and smaller argonite gravel is all in there for him, the substrate is thick for him and he likes to dig and dig and dig. I had a couple of decorations in there but he dug under them and was trying to get up into them and I didn't want them to end up killing him so they got taken out. The rock is heavy enough that he can't move :) he can just dig under and around it. When I got him he was about 7inches, now he is around 13 1/2 and I don't think he is done growing. They can get pretty big!
    My husband brought him home for me...SURPRISE!!! heh, yeah... He freaked me out at first, but he's grown on me and has a name, I say that because I have only named a few of my fish. His name is Gollum! :)

    He is the star and its true i always end up altering the tank around the fish either to make them happy or safe or to break up fights, golem had me laughing what a name for that face sticking out of that pipe hahaha
