About Yourself: Started out with a general trip to the petshop to maybe buy my young son a goldfish to stick in a bowl for him to watch and be entertained with. Did that and when I went back 2 weeks later for supplies I chose a different shop that just happened to have a very large marine section... Later that week I took delivery of the tank and its been salt everything since...

Oh, I forgot what brought me to your page in the first place. I love that rock setup on the left where it looks like a steep ledge, that's awesome, and kinda realistic I would think. What a great idea. fish avatar
I had a valentini in my reef for about 2 weeks, until I noticed all of my xenia, some of my zoos, and a large chunk from my frogspawn were eaten. I have heard from my research that some will some wont eat your softies. Good luck, keep an eye on him. I borrowed a trap from my LFS to get it out. Once again, good luck, they really look nice in a reef setting. fish avatar
