A very WARM WELCOME to MASA, Baron! What does "Baron's Select" sell?

Very glad that you found us, and joined MASA!

Sorry to see the clown fish that died. That would be the ONLY reason why that blue cray will be eating it.....

Otherwise the tank looks quite good. Needs to mature a bit though. Then it COULD look GREAT!

This is an "AquaH2O" tank, isn't? I have these tanks many times at their shop in Montague Gardens, Cape Town....

Good setup otherwise! Awesome skimmer! :)

Do you have any live rock ?

How do you keep the curved glass clean ?

barron, just a few thoughts on tank mates:)

that pajama tang as you call him will get big and aggressive. I know of a few tanks that have them and they are generally in the 1000l-2000l bracket, and that fish dominates the system. they are stunning fish but possibly not the best for a circular tank like yours as them like lots of space to swim:)

also thats an expensive meal for a lobster, but out of interest what else do you feed the fella and do you often see it?

what starfish do you have, can we see a pic:) can be difficult things to keep, depending on species.

lovely gobies you have there, especially that watchmans:)

is that one pic of a shrimp cleaning your clown fish?
dogsar guys are teasing u a little, but just to say it correctly that is a pic of a feeding lobster (blue) on a dead fish.

to my knowledge its only cleaner shrimps who are bright red with a central white stripe and white antenae which of the crustaceans will clean fish of parasites etc. the cleaner wrass being a fish is naturally rather different, and will clean fish but isnt a great tank mate as it doesnt have a great track recird for staying alive for a long time.

hope that clarrifies things slightly:)
