    Tank Stand After I have sprayed it. I have sprayed it with Stone Chip, an idea I got from a buddy of mine. It gives it a nice rough rubbery finish.

    You also have alot of fish in that tank. Some of those fish grow very quickly (like the sailfin, regal, flagtails and mullet). Are you planning on upgrading soon?
    Did you collect the bright orange starfish yourself?

    Oh... Yes. It's a purple tip anemone. I have put him on the rocks, but he seems to like it in front against the glass. Do not know why.

    It's just temporary for the Tangs. My larger tank had some filtration and mechanical problems, so I had to buy this one as a backup. I'm sorting out the tank this past two weeks, and hopefully in the next month I can put some of the fish back in the larger tank. Would like to keep the nano just for the clowns and critters and anemones.

    The Orange Starfish I bought at a Petshop in PTA. Would like to get another one. I have about 10 smaller local Natal Starfish in the tank as well. They tend to hang around the filters alot.

    The main system when I have bought it ran for about 8 months. We moved it all from the sellers house to mine within an hour and started it up again. It's now running at my place for a month.

    The only thing that happened is, the little flowery/grass things died on the live rock. I hope it will grow again.

    Why you ask?
