Good price. I think that is around what i got a single for.Scratch that it was 20 for a single.

I would do it, but I like having pieces and parts around to tinker with new ideas for my layouts or whatever.

Which version of the nano... the 240 or 425?

Looks great!!
I have to admit, that possum wrasse is pretty darn cool looking!

p.s. the bluish bubble gum thing is Sympodium....... :D
When on a journey, it is good to have an end, but in the end it's the journey that counts.

I have it written down, I have all the names written down now on a sticky note inside the stand.. I just like the name blue chewed bubblegum

BTW, that thing has already attached to my LR and is starting to spread.

Excellent! It should make a colony on that rock in no time - I really like that coral, it spreads but in a really nice way. Seems to play nice with other corals as well - always a plus!

What is the red thing just left of center?

its a single head acan. I got it for $10, so I figured i'd try it. I also have another single acan head that is purplish with white (left side up and to the right of the green zoa frag from you and down from the rock anem.

That would involve central nervous system regeneration, which I am led to believe is virtually impossible, biologically speaking. So, I'd guess no.



I must say, i am udderly supprised. my crab has two eyes again! he has molted about 2-3 times and upgraded shells twice. I was watching him last night and noticed the second eye stalk has an eyeball again! (originally it looked like the entire tip was missing.) I will post pictures when I am able to get him out in front!

This will show that crabs are freaks of nature. This is the same crab, its the only left clawed zebra I have been able to find so he is the lone one like this. First picture shows the eye on the left missing, and the second picture shows it regenerated.

With them able to do this, what is stopping them from taking over the world :lol: #-o

Sula,
My name is Andy & I have a 24 Bio cube. I keep very successfully : Frogspawn,Zoas,mushrooms,Duncans,birds nests & Kenya Trees. However, you will need a heater which will fit either in the tank itself or like me fits nicely in the back filter compartment of the tank. You will also need a Skimmer ( Nano Skimmer ) that will remove waste & keep your nitrates down which if not kept in check will neither help you keep fish or corals healthy! I also suggest a nice size piece of ' LIVE ' rock which also helps filtration & water quality. Your lights sound like they will do just fine! Enjoy your new tank & I hope my thoughts help you out.
