I decided to hook up the new skimmer to this system instead of having it in a box in the garage, even though it is way oversized. It is pretty quiet for the size it is. Most of the noise is from the air draw of 4000 L/H. I have a dc9000 pump feeding it but only have it around 1/3 power. It has been running for 24hrs now and no where near being broke in yet. It does look a bit ridiculous sitting next to the tank. :silly:

I got an oddball fish last week: a Scorpionfish. He is quickly becoming one of the favorites. Luckily the LFS already had it eating frozen foods before I got it. I have had it for 8 days and it has learned that when it sees me, it is dinner time and comes to the front of the glass. This is one fish I will probably not hand feed, although I did somewhat start hand feeding my Snowflake Eel. I'm just quick about it. :lol: I also have a Tang in quarantine with it and decided to throw some Formula Two Flakes in and the Scorpion went right after the large pieces. I guess I didn't even realize they would eat Flakes.

My quarantine tank doesn't have the best lighting, but here is a pic anyway.

It's amazing how well these guys can blend in. All I have for decorations in QT are pvc fittings and it had turned almost white to blend in.

If my Tang grabs a large piece of food "intended for the scorpion" it comes up and grabs it right out of its mouth.

I was getting bored with the look, so I added some Gorgonians and Anemones. I think there are 3 Gorgs and 5 Nems in there right now. I also emptied out my frag tank from other system to allow more room for macros to grow, so a few frags got put in here as well. I really need to clean the glass, but you should be able to see whats going on.

I decided to put a clownfish pair in my tank since I started getting a collection of Anemones.
