Sorry I don't have the complete setup as it is now...It is so much more established and pretty and full of life but this gives a bit of the startup.

Filtration is a little Eheim 150 HOB with four cartridges in it. That is why I have so much live rock. This is the way my fish guy set me up and it works awesome. My only isue is some green algae. I am combatting it with weekly water changes of 4-7 gallon and growing macroalgaes (halimeda and an unnamed red algae that is awesome!). Thanks for the comments! I love feedback!

We had a lawn mower blenny. He is one of my fish that died. Probably because he didn't eat algae. We have determined that the algae I have growing is not a palatable sort. I had emerald crabs as well and they didn't eat it either. I returned them to the fish store when they ate almost all my halimeda! Some green algaes are just not tasty to fish & critters. Or other algae eating fishes grow too large for my tank. So I pull it out by hand and suction it up while taking out the water I am changing.

There are two sponges & two black cartridges. They are what came with the filter and I have NEVER changed them since October. I rinse them in dirty tank water with about every other weekly water change.

I have three different zoanthids , three mushrooms (one has had four babies!), green star polyps (my clowns love these) and yellow polyps. Nothing to extravagant but didn't want to kill myself with expensive corals if I can't keep them alive. I have about 7-8 halimeda plants growing. And I just traded in 6 for 3lbs of live rock :) and I have what my guy calls red razor algae that is very cool and growing very large.

I bought a corallife strip. I think it has actinic and a 10k in it. I can double check later tonight.

I will have to get a pic of the red algae after I clean tomorrow or saturday.

I don't really know if they are a pair. They do a lot of pairing activities my 29 gallon tank 393849 There is a video of the black one hosting the coral in my intro post if you can find it.

I think the light has one actinic bulb and one 10k. I'll have to look to see if it is more specific than that. It was only $45 for 29 gallon length at my fish store!! yes I couldn't pass it up and it allowed me to move up with my corals further than the flourescent that came with my setup did.

I just googled and they are beautiful! Looks like a black ocellaris and a snowflake clown cross. I am truly unsure what would happen if my two were to breed. I do know that I don't have the time or resources to take care of the eggs in the ways that my fish guy tells me that they require. So my shrimp will have egg feasts if they decide to lay eggs.

Sometimes a light film just before cleaning. I could tilt the powerhead upward to create surface agitation. The corals won't care if I tilt it away from them since they don't like it anyway. :) Thanks for the tip!

They close up or don't open as fully as they do when they aren't in the flow. Especially the green star polyps.
