not cheap, but once its running smoothly its not really much more work then fw. Only difference is you have to mix water, but thats not that hard and you can mix a bunch at a time and get a holding tank or something so you have a couple water changes worth

They eat like pigs and never stop. They never stop moving either. I tried to take some close ups, but they move to often so i cant. Ill try more when my camera skills improve.

Some pics of my mantis shrimp poking its head out of its burrow. This is the most i usually see of him so i cant really get full body shots.

Ive added a couple more pics that i took today. I think my cmera skill are getting better,but they still arnt that good. It seems hard to get clear pictures especially when im close up.

You may noice a bit of growth and a couple more corals, but nothing that drastic. Main change is i had a bunch of xenia die for no apparent reason when my other corals were doing better then ever and i added a frag of frog spawn. Im hoping to add a feather duster or two and some mroe corals to fill it out a bit more

Thanks, I'm thinking of getting a spearer for the main tank (instead of a damesel, but i don't want a zebra that will outgrow the tank.

Not yet k I am still deciding how I will be running it and learning some more aswell.
I have been pming sean and he's been giving me soe great info to help me decide.

Also its quite pricey so It will be a while yet as I'm saving and buying things on a weekly basis.

Its funny how a "cheap" sw tank could get you a fw tank multiple times larger. My tanks starting to look better as the first set of pics was only months after the tank was setup and upgraded from another tank so now i have some good coraline covering the overflow box and the rocks. Im thinking of getting another mantis shrimp too. Havn't added anything else besides a bit more rock, I might rty to get some mantis feeding pics tonight (of him eating a fillet, not live as i don't have any. He's got a much nicer green color in person that you cant see in the pics

If sw wasn't so expensive, i probably would have all sw tanks, You don't even need fish for an interesting tank. i probably watch the crabs, pods, corals and other little critters more then the fish or mantis.
