Hey sponge I met u at local Petco u told me about this place nice pics u ever sell corals just upgraded from 75 to 150 with sump and closed loop looking for some frags possibly I'm in Poughkeepsie also
 I do remember you . Glad to see that you have picked up a larger tank . If I remember ,you had hoped to set up a 220. Got to say though a 150 is not that small. I also have a 150 5ft long,made from acrylic .Not the easiest to light ,with the cut outs on top

I will have pieces that I could frag up . Since this a new tank ,I would wait a little to ensure the cycle is over.  What type of corals are you looking to keep?

You should start your own thread ,share your set up and what you are hoping to keep .I look forward to seeing your thread . When your ready ,I'm sure frags will go your way .

I have had an algae bloom that just wants to hang around . With plucking that stuff off of rocks , and some frags has gotten old . So I'm giving a Blue spot Sea Hair a shot . I have tried urchins before ,but they were good for knocking frags over .A few shots .

Hope it works out. I tried a lettuce nudibranch once, crawled into a power head, didn't end well, lol.

I've had all sorts and the blue speckled is by far my favorite.  I find them to be hardier, but have also found all sea hares to gravitate toward powerheads

I placed this hair in the 30L . The 30 is used as my frag tank  .I do hope it does the job that I got it for . This morning I found it on the front glass ,making it's way around . 

I found two frags had been moved overnight by the hair .The Pencil urchin I once had would have knock more over than what the hair has done so far  .

I felt like that about my Pom-Pom crabs when I added them, may as well stuffed a $20 bill under a rock in my tank, never saw the things once they got out of the bag.

I guess my twenty lasted just a hare longer than yours did Dave . It was doing well until it ventured onto the Koralia powerhead .That would have never happened with a Pencil Urchin .

I think this is why so many people originally get into the hobby.  You can't resist these beautiful fish.  Way better than anything that is on TV or the Internet.

A great many threats face reef environments.  An informed marine aquarist can be part of the solution, not a contributor to the problem.

Thanks Mark . . Most of the fish I picked up were juveniles.  It has been fun to watch them grow to there current size. I'm  looking forward to them getting moved over to the 220 ,so I can watch them grow even larger . It will be harder to take a FTS of that tank ,considering the size of the tank ,and the room it will in . I probably will have to take the pic from outside the house looking in threw the window. That is if I have a clear shot ,without a fish tank in the way .

My granddaughters love to watch them swimming around . That brings me pleasure to see there faces ,as I share my hobby with them .
