    Very nice! May I ask what light are you using? Red slime is often a circulation issue, try adding an Azoo 180 powerhead its like $8 and not much larger than a couple of starbursts.

    Thanks guys! Freshwater is definitely where I am most comfortable. This is honestly my first marine tank, so don't go thinking I am an expert! The tank has been very cheap for me. I pieced it together from a bunch of extras around the house and I have a friend fragging corals for me (for free). The light is a 12" strip with a PowerGlo lamp.

    It started out as my wifes project (she wanted to keep hermit crabs) and I decided to beef it up a little! It's been more of an experiment for me that seems to be working out?

    Its a 12" strip with a PowerGlo lamp. I'll have to look into that powerhead! Maybe that's what I need!?

    Thanks!

    How cool! The small size of the anemone-type thingies make it look like a big tank! I've always wondered--do you have to choose dwarf/small type corals and anemones to keep that effect going, like one does with FW planted nanos? or do they end up "growing to the tank size"? Further, do they ever outgrow the tank?

    I'd love to have a SW tank someday...

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Thanks again everyone! I need to do some maintenance tonight...I will try to get some pics after I'm finished.

    To answer one of the questions from above...I try to chose corals that stay on the small side...If they happen to outgrow the tank, I know some stores that would gladly give me store credit for them.
