    Hi all,

    Figured I'd start my tank journal. This is a 40 gallon Nuvo from Innovative Marine, it's been up for about 2 months now with a clown from my previous 20 gallon tank. I just added the frogspawn and torch corals last night. I also added several blue-leg hermit crabs and a single firefish (who is currently hiding).

    Please do chime in and let me know your thoughts on my tank, especially if you have criticism.

    Thanks! IMG_0133.jpg IMG_0130.jpg

    Looks great! I'm a fan of super clean rock/sand, especially after 2 months.

    Thanks, we'll see how long I can keep that up :p. Looks like I will need to target feed the firefish until it gets more used to the tank, the clown appears to be bullying it :(.

    You can try a breeder box and putting the clownfish in there for a couple days until the firefish becomes a bit more acclimated.

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there is too much flow over my torch coral, if you can please watch the short video and let me know. This is after the lights have been off for about half an hour.

    Thank you!
