It ticks me off that I have to move the pics that way and with a pay as you go cellphone they charge rediculous amounts for emails so it doesn't happen out of principle...lol
One of our local suppliers had three frogfish in stock last week when I was there and they are one interesting looking fish. Looking forward to a pic when you get it.

Just a word of Caution.
You may want to slow down with adding things so quickly to your tank. If I remember correctly you only set this system up last month and you allready have quite the bioload going on. A friend of mine that recently set up a tank did something similar to what you've done with stocking, only to wake up yesterday to a crashing tank. The water was cloudy, all the fish and inverts were dead and only a few snails survived. With the help of some other local reefers, all of the corals were taken to be babysat while the tank tries to recover.
I'd hate for the same thing to happen to you. You're not giving the tank enough time to properly equalize between additions. When something goes wrong, Its usually going to happen really fast with out warning.

I also had the same results with the cycle on my tanks. When I set up my first saltwater tank(65g), I mixed the water, ran it for a couple days, added about 100 lbs of VERY WELL CURED liverock(from 5 yr established tank), and within 2 weeks I had completed the cycle. I also had a 135g for a short time with similar results. When I set up my 300g, I had about 200-250 lbs of very well cured live rock(from 6 year established tank), and within 2 weeks(and still no cycle) I was adding fish and inverts. After about 3 months, I added another 350-400 lbs of live rock(10 yr established tank), I now have a total of about 500-550 lbs in the display, and another 100 lbs in the sump. The cycle on this tank was basically non existant, water params didn't change, and now 6 months later, the water is still pristine, crystal clear(with help from 3 magnum 350 canister filters with bio-wheels....have a 4th but gotta replace a part of it to make it work), ammonia =0, nitrate=0, nitrite=0, phosphate=0......I know it's easier to maintain with such a large tank, and I'm sure that has a lot to do with the water params not really changing.....The next tank I do will be about 1000g(the wife doesn't know about that part yet.....lol), but that won't be until we sell our house and move

One thing I forgot to mention, is how I added my livestock. I probably went faster than some would have, but it took me about 6 months to put everything in....I think 2 fish first, then about 2 weeks later another couple fish, and so on and so on, up to my now 11 fish, and testing the water every couple days(didn't add EVERY 2 weeks, just for the first 6-7 fish). I also added the inverts one or two at a time with the fish. My last addition was a asfur angelfish(fairly large @ about 6-8"). I'm done for fish now.....of course if a great deal comes up on a nice fish, I'd be willing to change my plans....lol)

TANK UPDATES!!!!!!!


well everyone the tank is doing GREAT!
i moved my tank to my new home where it looks great as soon as you walk in the door. unfortunately during the move i lost an arrow crab and my long tentacle anemone. they both died at the store where being kept until my tank was back up and running.

but on the other hand. the shark started to get quite big and a little more aggressive so i sold him for 100$!!!

the new attributes to the tank now are a long nose butterfly, a ribbon eel (3ft) and an ABSOLUTELY beatuiful pink rose bubble tip anemone! i have some pictures but cant upload them yet because i lost my cable haha. but its definatly an anemone you have NEVER seen before. being its fluorescent pink with a white and vibrant yellow base and actualy glows under an actinic light! its very healthly and doing great! its a stationary anemone, being its sat on the rock its on for the last 4months. its wedged itself all the way through the rock.
this guy came a fairly hefty price but i worked a deal via selling my shark and such getting 350$ of the price reducing the price to $200 plus the rock was $30 dollars


another addition to the tank was 2 corals. a suncoral with 30 headsish and a blue sea fan. both doing well. the sun coral likes to stay almost fully bloomed all the time which is quite nice.

anyway so as soon as i can find my cord i will upload some pictures but untill then keep reefing everyone Smile
