    I am so weak. I wandered into my LFS to get some RO water. I happened to pass by a tank and saw....something I really wanted. Imagine that!!! How many times has that happened to you??? About a thousand dollars worth of times to me (at least). So yeah, I broke down and got another fish - wasn't even planning on it. The big question...how will it fair with my cleaner and blood shrimp? (I will post the pics in a bit, apparently, my computer does not like the option of adding pics at the moment...)

    Yeah, me too. I am the most impatient person on the planet. I cannot even so much as access anyones pics. When I go to the photo gallery link, it goes to a warning page. Nothing. Can't upload or view any pics. Any ideas about what to do?

    can't help you there. i upload all my pics to photobucket and just use the link to post pics here. it works great for me. plus you can upload a much larger size so you get a better quality pic when you post it on a board.

    I keep hearing about photobucket, what the heck is that and how do I use it? I have them in my iphoto on my laptop, but no idea where to put them and how to get an address to place on my thread. Any help would be great. I am eager to show you my new little friend...but want to keep you guessing.

    Just set up an account at Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket (it's free). Then you upload all your pics into Photobucket, and they give you a BB image code for each picture, just post the BB image code into your thread the same as you would if you uploaded your pic into the LR gallery.

    Bobby,

    I do have large fish in my 125. I don't plan on keeping them all in this tank for more than a year. My plan has always been to have a 300 gallon angel tank with soft corals, turn my 125 into a "normal" reef tank and have a 1,000 gallon shark tank, with 2 brown banded bamboos, a whitespotted bamboo, a honeycomb moray eel, and a leopard shark. I will start the angel tank in a year and move the shark (if it makes it) and angels into the 300 gallon and three years from now set up my shark tank - just saving money to do it. Glad you liked the pics.

    Ok I'm officially jealous. You have a georgious hippo tang. That is my dream fish. Some day I will be able to keep tangs.

    It does an ego good to have you guys praise my tank so. All my fish are healthy and eating like crazy. All my corals are growing and healthy. I struggle to keep my phosphates down below .25, but I guess I will have to live with it - I feed to much to keep the angels from eating the corals that it is small price to pay. Not even running phosguard 24/7 keeps them away, ah well, the price I pay for my experiment. Thanks again for all the kind words. It makes all the hard work worth it, not to mention I love sitting in front of it for an hour a day.
