SaltyDog - Let me know if your daughter needs any help with her tank; ask her if she's heard of Kent Marine? I'm the head of R & D for them... be glad to help out a fellow FF'er if needed.

FLYFISHa1 thanks for the assist, she is or should I say the tank is on it's 3 week the live sand should be working an helping the BIO-FILTER work. the nitrites, I always get them mixed up. nitrites, nitrates, anyways this is what we are wating for now. the EEL in the tank should help cycle it an I guess it will take a few more weeks. befor she can add fish, that the eel wont eat. there is one lucky eel he eats better than I do, SHRIMP, CLAMS, SCOLOPS. so now Im (baby sitting) a fish tank. thats about it. heres an interesting story the outher night I was talking w/ a guy that had a BIG GROUPER, an it eat his TRIGER fish, the TRIGER was a picasso triger $500.00, what a meal. he has pic's of this event.
well thats it for now.

Hmmmm, yes it would seem that the grouper regarded that tankmate as a snack, and by the looks of him I'd keep small children and cats away from the aquarium, as well...
Yeah, let me know how the new tank goes; I keep a 105 reef in my living room for personal enjoyment. We have plenty of tanks in the office and lab to keep us busy, but my home tank is quite pretty. It's about three months old at this point...

Whoops... try this...

You know, this image is so small now I can't even see what's in the tank. If you're interested, let me know, I'll e-mail you a copy of the file. It looks much better on full-screen.
