thanks for all of the great comments.... i seem to like inverts more becuase they dont create as much ammonia so that way i can keep more of them, and plus they help stablize the ammonia created from my fish.... im on my way this weekend to get a few more exotics, so ill post some more pics then...

why do you say its time for a water change?? is it because of that maroon color algae???

That maroon colored alage is actually a photosynthetic bacteria called Cyano. It thrives in poor water conditions. It can release a toxin that can kill fish/inverts if it gets out of hand. I'd suggest doing at least a 50% water change and sucking out as much cyano as possible because it's a potentially serious problem. I used to have hardcore cyano problems then I slapped a good skimmer on the tank and the cyano pretty much disappeared.
