Bacon

Post by xrayjeeper83 » Sat Jan 21, 2012 1:15 pm

Well I traded Bloat and tank for a 37g fully running SW tank. Came with stand, hood, LR, Sump, skimmer, all pumps, and a 250w metal halide light. So now Bacon has her forever home :D . Im giving my 20g tank with everything to a friend that wants a clown.

I have added some LR from my 20g and some dead rock I had laying around, also added a bunch of corals. Multiple types of zoas, colt, gsp, trumpet and some shrooms. Also added some hermits, snails, and starfish. Thinking about getting a choc chip star to add, and another tailspot blenny

Ok here are some pics

We'll miss Bloat, but Bacon's new little home is pretty sweet. Does she pick at those corals?

She has always left corals alone. She seems smart enough to know what is supposed to be food and whats not LOL. She will go nuts on a crawfish but leaves ghost shrimp and hermits alone

You need to look into the dietary requirements of everything you buy. Chocochip's diet includes corals.

cool tank! I'm currently finishing up setting up my 37g marine tank. Haven't chosen many livestock/corals yet but I'm getting a dwarf lion on friday for my first fish.
