Still looking for the perfect stand?
I want to be a marine biologist when I grow up!

Yep, haven't done much with it lately been working on a new stand for the 90g DT.

Well we added a Hector's Goby to this system.

Here is some info on them - we got ours locally.
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=15+2124+176&pcatid=176

These are extremely docile fish that not only add color and movement to a tank but contribute to the CUC (they sift sand like most gobys - though you need fine sand for this bread - and they also eat algae - including hair.)  These fish are perfect for both nano and large tanks as long as there are no highly aggressive fish or crabs present.  In a new tank these fish may be rarely seen at first but like most fish will venture out more as they become accustom to their new surroundings.

Man it's been awhile since I updated this - I'll try to get some pics up tonight if I don't forget.
The tank is doing well unfortunately the Goby never made it through acclimation to the system.

He now has a couple red mushrooms, two superman style mushrooms, a purple mushroom, small ric, some zoas, a kenya tree, green pally and I think that is about it.

I would love to see how the artificial wall is doing in regards to algae growth and/or coral growth.

No bad algae growth to speak of it is coralined up pretty well and he has zoas and clove polyps growing on it in some areas.
Been sick and busy dealing with some tank issues with the main display the last week or so but I'll try to get those pics up this weekend if I remember.

I never was good about getting pics and getting them posted - it's kind of funny it's so much easier now with smart phones and well, I still don't do it.  I'll repost the original pics as for the boy he is 12 now and the tank is still going.  It's been through ups and downs lost all the mushrooms at one point but clean it do some water changes and it just keeps going.  Tank survived the move better then the 90g even.  So for those that want to know how these walls hold up that is 7yrs of salt in a nano system with very little filtration being cared for by a child - yeah they last if you do them right.
