    I ordered them from Vivid Aquariums out your way. I spoke to Dave the owner and he is going to pick out a nice selection for me. They had the fairest prices and I have heard good things about that store.

    lol, I actually know Dave. I have photographed his aquarium which I believe I have posted here on the forum. He is such a cool guy. It was unfortunate that he had almost a complete wipe out a month or 2 ago due to power outages in our area.

    The anemones came in this morning and all arrived alive. I dripped them for a hour and a half and put them in the tank with all the power heads off and return pump on low. Here is a picture a few hours after they were put in. Not the best but they had a long trip and I turned the light down to 50% to let them adjust. I took a short video of the clowns already hosting the green nem on the left. More pictures to come in the following days.

    Little picture update, thinks are going well. I bought a Hanna phosphate checker and get .02 reedings and my CA is 370 Mag 1040 and Dkh 6.4 Nitrate 0.00 Amonia 0.00 on a Redsea pro kit. So all is going well. Nems eat one meal of raw shrimp per week. The clowns aggression has dropped by 50% since adding the Nems.

    That looks amazing Devon! Love the Bubble tips. Those in combination with the Rock Nems will be really beautiful.

    I also ordered from Vivid Aquariums in the past. One thing he sent me was a Brain Coral that was supposed to be a small frag. The piece he sent me was huge at least four or five inches long and three inches wide. It is doing amazingly well.

    Your numbers look great. It took me a long time to get there. I finally got a dosing pump and my tank is finally in the zone. This is a fun thread to follow. Something very different from my reef.

    Your pictures look great as well. Can't wait to see the Rock Nems!

    Ricardo, I know you have an incredible selection of corals out there that are really affordable. You need to get that tank going for us East Coasters...

    lol, yeah, I'm working on it. My tank has acquired so much dust though, it's not even funny

    I know I keep droning on about all of the stuff going on that side tracks the tank builds but we are saving up for 2 back to back vacations coming up at the end of October to Vegas for a week and Thanksgiving week to Lake Tahoe. So...a lot of saving going on and nothing going towards the SW tank

    I feel the same way Ricardo lol. I think i've priced out an upgrade for mine about 3 times now. Have another quote into Reef Savvy but they are still recovering from hurricane so it could be a while. Just got bit by the bug again recently, going to at the very least tear mine down and do a deep clean to try and get the algae and nutrients from neglect under control. Tear out a lot of the old dying/dead corals and get some new sticks. Would be nice to upgrade in the process but it would be at least a few months wait time before I could find and acquire the tank I want. Also going to tackle cable management and hopefully build a nice controller mount/display because when I look at my mess of cables behind the tank and around the Apex it instantly stresses me out.

    So if anyone knows a place where I can get a 24-30" (possibly 36) long tank setup peninsula style that is no more than 20" wide that is rimless and also that can be shipped to me or close enough to be picked up please let me know lol.

    Well not much of an update but I added a Vortech mp10wqd I got for free lol My buddy shut down his SW tank and gave me a 29g biocube with all the accessories and one of them was the vortech! Also got a extra Tunze ato still in the box. Needless to say I got a super deal. I think I am going to have to get him and his wife a gift card for somewhere to say thanks. Another thing that happened with the tank I ended up killing 3 nems, I believe I A: Turned up the Radion to high to soon, B: I screwed with the salinity to much or C: lack of experience with nems. SO I have the others and they are just not the same anymore not sure what the issues is but I figured just leave the tank alone and see if stability will help. The fish on the other hand are doing remarkable and the tanks looks great the white bottom is almost 100% covered in purple coraline fuge and the kessil make a tone of chato. But still vary sad about the nems the tank has never looked so good. Now it looks empty without all the color.
