I perform a 10-15% WC once a week and use that as my top off. I am fortunate in that I have little evap during the week.

I didn't know that Kenya Trees will drop babies like that? I had a new one growing on a rock, but wasn't sure if it was a hitch hiker. Hrm.. I might rethink this Kenya tree situation.

Some interest but still no takers.

$150 for the 2 tanks, stand, & canopy if they are out of my house before I leave Friday.

I'll even throw in a free frag (softy) if you want.

E30 hit it on the nose. I have an old 5 gal hex or a 4.5 gallon rubbermaid tote that I use instead of a 10 (less water for water changes).

Some shrimps will add some movement or perhaps a starfish or two. Beyond that I don't know what to recommend.

That looks neat. Let us know if you find out what it is. Blue coralline would be awesome to have in a tank to help breakup the green / red / purple coralline.

Joe,

I got some nice orange zoa's from him. The frags are still in the q.t. but have colored up nicely. I'm not sure if he has any left, but I know he did at one point.
