There's only 1 saltwater specialty shop here, it's called Bayside Corals. Lots of really nice pieces, they really do a good job bringing in the more unique stuff.

Had a 30" deep tank one... I'm a tall guy (6'3"), and there were many occasions where I couldn't reach the bottom. Next tank was only 24" deep :)

I am running that at the present, the bulbs did burn pretty blue for the first week or 2, but they've mellowed into a really nice white/blue now.

I am however, concerned about the PAR from them.

There's also a couple of bad batches of Salifert ALK tests; they're reading high. Check the Salifert sponsor forum, they list the batches affected there.

Very nice plans Scott! For a tank builder, check with Custom Aquariums in Edmonton (Aquarium Illusions). Colby can hook you up. Our new tank is massively overbuilt, but it's a beauty.

Also look up internal gas bubble disease, this causes them to float and have swimming issues. I usually refer to www.seahorse.org for information. Good luck with your horse, hope he does ok.

They have to be clownfish, as they are definitely not pods of any kind. We caught some last night out of the overflow. We have a 230g, so catching the little guys isn't easy. They sure do swim...

Hi all,

Last night while the wife was doing a late night look at the tank with a flashlight, she discovered what appears to be (90% certain) clownfish fry swimming about.

Well, if it were me, I wouldn't purchase wild caught. I would wait a bit to see if you can locate some captive bred horses near you or have them shipped to you. My horses are pigs. Here's a pic of...

I am not sure, he doesn't look like the mantis's I've seen before. He definitely has the standard shrimp-type body, except one big claw. Not sure if I should put him back in :)

Any idea what he is? The one big claw makes me think he's bad.
