    Coming along nicely.

    Are those two fire fish's paired.

    Had a huge fight in my nano when I added two (that I thought was paired, but was not).

    Thanks bud, and thanks for the help the other day with that nasty I found in the tank.

    So one of the firefish got stuck between the power head that came loose and its didn't make it really sucks that I was so luck to get a pair, I'm planning on removing all the rock and replace with real reef. Need to upgarde the skimmer and lights then we golden
