    Thanks guys!
    So far the flame angel is the only fish that has been cleaned by the shrimp. The clowns don't even go remotely close the shrimp and the bigger of the damsels kind of flashed his tail at the shrimp once. My guess would have to be the fact that my clowns are captive bred and the flame angel was wild. I have no idea if the damsels were tank raised or caught though.
    I still haven't figured out the skimmer either=/. My main problem is the pump on it is absolutely huge and since my tank is acrylic is has very strange bracing. I really have no where to put it that is isnt in the way. The only real opening is where the canister spray bar is already located. I really have no idea what I am going to do with it. As of now it is just sitting on the counter while I try to figure it out. So far everything is going well without a skimmer though. I still have some planning to do lol.

    That was one of the things that came to mind actually. I was thinking about just a small sump, say 10 gallons or so, for the skimmer, and possibly a small fuge. The only problem with that is the way the stand is set up in the tank. The tank sits on a platform held up by metals rods, which are supported by two cabinets on either side of the tank with a space in the middle where my canister filter currently sits. It is a pretty odd stand so it leaves very little room to work with. This is actually a link to a picture i found of it on google. http://images.hayneedle.com/mgen/dig...pg&h=400&w=400. Any suggestions of ways to work with that are very welcome =)

    I think the canister is too tall to go in one of the cabinets. I was thinking a small tank ontop of one of the cabinets and then I could just use the skimmer as an HOB onto that tank and try to do some sort of bubble trap to reduce the micro bubbles. I just haven't figured out what I would do for plumbing for it yet, or what I would do for a return.

    Bit of an update, everything that is currently in the tank is all doing very well. There has been noticeable growth on the xenia and the green zoas. 2 weeks ago we added a pretty good chunk of GSP, a Good sized zoa colony(atleast 100 heads), and another Daisy Polyp matt. Unfortunately I have not been able to take pictures of the new additions yet. Oops

    Yesterday we made a very large order from cultivated reef which I found thanks to labnjab. I think we ordered like 8 corals. I think they were; a eagle eye zoa frag, a green toadstool leather, 3 different mushrooms(1 was included free), a blue/green clove polyp frag, a blue anthelia, and a green candy cane. I am really excited to get all of these.

    So far the buying experience from them has been awesome, much better than any other online store. Greg, who I am assuming is the owner has been emailing me with updates. He was even nice enough to say that one of the corals was not the same exact color variation from the site and he offered a refund if I wasn't happy with the color. I just kind of assumed that anyone would just say the color difference were from different lighting and shipping stress lol. He was very honest. He also said he included an extra large frag of the candy cane and the free mushroom for any inconvenience from the color mix up.

    I will probably have some iffy cellphone pics of the additions tomorrow with good pictures to follow maybe this weekend.

    The cleaner shrimp is such an awesome little guy, every time my hand is in the tank he jumps on it and just starts picking away. I started feeding him flake food out of my hand too which is very funn. So far no one else seems very interested in the cleaning services of the shrimp. One of the damsels tried to back up to him one day but the shrimp wasn't interested and I haven't seen the damsel try again since. The flame angel still gets cleaned, and I don't think the clowns have even looked at the shrimp since it has been in the tank, let alone go new him lol.

    I have not updated this in a long time! I just never have time to take pictures and I know no one wants updates without pictures haha. So things have changed a lot since my last pics, there are a lot of new corals. I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I didn't have my tripod and I really did not try at all, I just didn't have time. So they were pretty much shot with whatever camera settings were already up. Also please excuse the algae, it was the day before I did the water change =)

    Here is a new torch coral
