Your tank is spectacular. Is it just a reef tank no fish? What are your tank specs.

An electric fire scallop would look great in there! Too bad it needs so much space ]:

Works great

You don't need a skimmer on a tank with no fish, a skimmer would do more bad than good in a tank this small anyway.

I am thinking about getting a little green banded goby though. My cheato keeps my nitrates at 0 all the time.

Ya too bad, they are neat critters.

Oh i see. Thats nice to know. I'm assuming thats only because your corals, nems, etc. are all photosynthetic.

I do feed my dunans (and other LPS) a lot though. So the cheato does absorb those nutrients Smile

Umm hammer, frogspawn, candycane, and duncan for LPS.

SPS: Green acro, multicolor acro, pink birdsnest, blue tenius (spelling could be wrong), orange monti cap, superman monti, hydnophora, tan digitata and orange montipora digitata.

Softies: Green rhodactis shrooms, blue ricordea, orange ricordea yuma, grandis palys, orange people eaters, fire and ice zoa, some unnamed zoa, more people eaters (I forget the name), blue clove polyps, radioactive green zoa. I think thats it.

I will be getting some nuclear greens, purple deaths, darth mauls, tubbs blues, and a chalice next week. I also plan on buying some clams Smile
