Woo that will be interesting!
Are you gonna get some live rock? If so you could get some really long pieces of the tonga branch coral and have like a forest of them up the back...
just an idea! hehe

That is an excellent thing. I want to find one within driving distance when we do start getting into saltwater. We're envious of your LFS and all the great aquatic life that you have. sounds like a great setup, especially with a 125g on the way.

Looking good! I saw a really nice purple tipped anemone at my Petco, only $6, and even though my tank is too new I was tempted - till I noticed that the tank had a ton of Aiptasia in it. Those I don't want to get in my tank if I can avoid it, although the peppermint shrimp I have will hopefully eat them if they do show up.

I use www.saltwaterfish.com for a majority of my fish purchase's they have anemone's on there for 7.99 i believe only problem is you have to have a 80 order to buy anything. We have a local marine aquarium club that i put group buys together for so thats how i do it. We all split the shipping and we usually get the min. order req.

I'm glad you've had success with saltwaterfish.com. I haven't heard very many good things about them as far as getting livestock that's died in shipment or arrived with disease. Liveaquaria.com has had a lot of good reviews, and supposedly they have good customer service & honor their guarantee on things arriving alive & in good condition. I haven't ordered any livestock online yet, but I've been tempted. May eventually order some corals.

Looks great. Just wondering, how much is that rock leaning against the back wall if at all.

I know how you feel about the Saltwater stores, I have one dedicated to Saltwater by me with all Saltwater, staff is friendly too, and reasonable prices with several display tanks so you can see how big things get and everything. Hopefully you guys can find one. Like Jgoldfinger said local clubs are great too, I hope to go to one by me this summer.

A few pieces up on the top that i just added not pictured are leaning on the wall but other then that none. Its set up to be stable and have caves for the fish to swim in. When you have a hex with a black acrlyic back you dont have many aquascaping options.

Great idea to show pics of each stage. Makes for nice memories.

Good that your tank is close to your bed. That way, it's the last thing you see at night before going to sleep.
