Yours ain't bad there either Angel!  I see a coral beauty in there...I'm jealous!  I really wanted to add one, but  was afraid it wouldn't get along with the flame.   :-[

My two got along fine!  They just need space to swim in and play on opposite sides of the tank. Even at feeding time they didn't bother each other.

Well I have this Red Sea berlin Skimmer that I have had for a long time and it has worked fine for what I needed.  I always had to tinker with the air and pump to keep it making foam though.  So the other day I was going through my box of misc fish stuff and found a rather nice Air Pump and decided to give it a try on the skimmer and WOW!!!!

What a difference the air pump makes!  I can see why so many folks go that route and add the air stone!  That maybe the next upgrade!

Got some other things planned to and so will keep everyone updated.

No air stone the skimmer went kaplunk so I bought a new one and now 350 bucks later I am happier than a clam. ;D  It is working great and I love it.

On another note my Bangai Cardinals had babies and I have three of them in the fuge.  They are eating cyclopeze and looking cute as ever.  I have never had fish babies in my SW tank, but have had Peppermint Shrimp babies in there.  Need to check the over flow and see if any ended up in there.

Wow - that is great Angel.  What kind of skimmer did you end up with then?  BTW, I had heard (or read somewhere) that Bangais were going to be on a "no catch" list at some point in the future (decreased numbers or something) so you have some valuable babies there probably.  How fun.  Can't wait to see you this week-end!!

FYI, not sure how accurate this report is, but I had heard it elsewhere and recently I read:  "The United Nations agency regulating the trade in endangered species, CITES, unveiled some 40 new government proposals for changes to wildlife trade rules ... Other fish species up for protection due to over-exploitation include ... .   A popular item in home aquariums, the striking tropical Bangai cardinal fish, is also a candidate for listing, because about 700,000 to 900,000 of them are collected every year."  source:  http://www.terradaily.com
