Very pretty :)

Thank you.  Think I have about decided no more fish just the two clowns.  Maybe a couple more emerald crabs and some sort of shrimp.   But the last couple shrimp I tried didn't even survive a couple days.

If I may be so bold - a seller by the name of AquaticArtsTM has sold me some nice invertebrates when other sellers failed. They have their own website and they also sell on Amazon. Maybe you could give them a try for a shrimp?

Inverts like shrimp tend not to do so well when your levels are off.  (calcium, alk, magnesium, etc...) 
I don't know about where you are, but a lot of LFS keep the specific gravity of their tanks quite low in comparison to what we have them at, in the house, perhaps the shock of a new home did them in? 
If you're feeling brave, you can use a razor blade and slice your mushrooms in half ;)  just give it some time, and youll be wishing you never bought mushrooms!

 

One of my favourite shrooms is the green fuzzy mushroom (2 varietys, 1 green with brown tips, 1 brown with green tips) they get so large, so they add some nice colour to a large amount of area when their happy.  I had some that would get past 12" when they expanded all the way. 
 

Are you into Green Star Polyps?  That would add some nice colour and movement!  To keep it in check you can keep it on your sand and grow it like grass, or glue it to the back of your tank so its like a moving grass background.

Funny you should say that. I did get one Green Star Polyp with 6 mushrooms.  Couple of my new mushrooms are the biggest I have ever had.  No clue on color yet only a couple look like the color I ordered the rest all look brown.  And one jumped off the frag already. I have had a couple do that before and show up other places so not to worried about it.  Ill see about new pictures tomorrow of the big mushroom.

Looks great, was that Flame hawkfish representative of the breed? I know absolutely zero about saltwater environments but that fish behaved like a guard dog. 

 

My next experiment is either a nano saltwater or 500 gallons of goldfish. If I go saltwater I'll be pulling your ear for advice.

Yes that was what they look like.  And they are expensive.  Right now I have talked myself out of anymore fish for that tank. I have two clowns.  They are doing fine.  But sure would like one more.  But not right now.

Tank looks fantastic! I've been on a big zoa/mushroom kick recently. 

I should probably get some pics of my nano uploaded onto here, now that I think about it.

YEAH! :wa
