Cliff I have no idea how you get anything done in your house lol... I'd just sit there and watch that tank. I'm sure you would find something new to see every day lol it always fascinated me to look...
word of caution with the turbos, if they flip over they can't get back up, and if they die they'll release all kinds of nasties into the tank
that's a brittle star... very small... cool coloring tho!
another +1 to above
I was one of those people for a while who didn't do regular water changes.. everything was ok for the first year i would say, but then i kept having algae problems and other...

Double post lol
Here's what's in the cart so far:
Salifert Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite testing kits (each has enough for 60 tests)
VisiTherm 75W heater
EcoMarine MP10 ES (Super excited about this...
I'd go with the 50% since you don't have anything in there it won't be life or death with a slight parameter change (ie pH or salinity) plus it'll prevent more nitrates from leeching in

for what it's worth I'll second Spardas on the ID's
First pic definitely looks like a feather duster (they're fun) and the worm doesn't look like a fireworm so he should be ok to leave alone since...
Power outages are always rough, as a previous power company employee they're probably beefing up their system, only problem is that during the re-beefing (if you will lol) the rest of the system...

This was actually one of the options I was kicking around. And I'll be going with sand on the bottom and the piece of LR seemed like the most reasonable/efficient thing to do
And @sheamurai I...

20 gallon long reef tank

Assorted small gobies (haven't made the final decision yet)

As for lighting I'm thinking of using this set up:
Can't decide which set up to get though, or if I should frankenstein my own kit together just using...

Anyways yea probably will be dominated by zoas since they're my favorite... trying to think of other softies that are fun but don't...
Been a while but I'm teetering right on the end of getting back into the salty side. I have a 20 gal long that I had used for my sump when i had my 55. I'm curious to see what kinds of...

Have you given any thought to the stocking plan for the tank? You're slightly limited with a tank that size but you can still create a fun mix between fish and corals if you choose

Cliff great pics that angel is really cool looking!!
looks like you have an overall better set up for the algae scubber man! I'd be interested to see somebody do a study on the optimal flow for a scrubber... I'm sure there's one out there that I just...

If you're getting crabs such as emeralds make sure you don't get a ton but if you do try and have 1 male to a lot of females... the reason I said don't get a ton is they'll fight, at least mine did...
