Really nice looking tank, what kind of lighting is on it?
Also, I love your goby, how old is he/she?
Again really nice looking tank. Very Happy

Awww! I'm sure you posted that to be nice, too, but now I'm just totally green with envy! Smile I guess I'll just have to be patient until the day I can afford a setup like that (roughly $2000?!). In the meantime I'll have to clean up the drool! Wink

Very nice!


Is the gobies tail damaged, or like that normally in the second pic?

I purchased him few weeks ago and his tail was really chewed up. It was actually worse than that. I would have never taken him If I'd seen that, but he was in a tank with about 20 of them so the LFS guy just grabbed one. Its growing back nicely.

I am not an expert on saltwater, so is coraline algae good or bad? Question

Coralline is the good stuff. Its much nicer to look at then green or brown algae. It helps somewhat with the filtration. It's also a very good guage for the health of your reef tank. If the coralline is growing like crazy your doing something right(in most cases)

This tank needed somebody to keep things orderly so I got Brutus. A Yellowstripe Maroon Clownfish



Also picked up a Red Formia Starfish
