    Here is my progress on my 90 gallon reef tank upgrade. If the video freezes up, then let me know. For some odd reason I have had some issues with Youtube uploads in the last 36 hours.

    Noticed today that my Diamond Watchman Goby periodically perches on my rock. My previous one never did that:

    I posted it in the corals forum, but for continuity it is probably worth posting here as well:

    Your tank looks so great! This is really making me want to start up my own Saltwater tank :D

    Well if you can be content with a smaller tank and just a few fish you can set one up that will be fairly easy to maintain and not super expensive. Nart has a guide on here and I have a cost breakdown of setting up a 20 Long FOWLR (Fish Only With Live Rock). The only 2 things I forgot in the vid were $10-$20 for 10-20lbs of sand and a $7 Digital thermometer.

    Had to remove the Yellow Tang due to aggression towards the coral beauty (took a chunk out of it's lower fin tip) and was hitting the CB with it's scalpel (not good). I do currently have a Pyramid Butterflyfish in QT and will post a vid once it is added. A small upgrade, but I did add a black back to the aquarium:

    The Pyramid Butterflyfish fell though (died as the supplier delayed shipping to the LFS) and finding another one has proven to be a bear, so I opted for a One Spot Foxface instead. It is now in QT:
