Photo Caption:My horses staring down their food (live Ghost Shrimp) I swear that goes on for at least 5 minutes, sometimes 15 minutes before they eat it. It's beyond me why the shrimp always just stares back at them instead of running. haha.

Advice: Do your research! This is an incredibly rewarding hobby but if you don't know what you're doing, it also becomes a very expensive and stressful one.
Corals/Plants: 1 Yellow Sea Whip Gorgonian
1 Colony of Zooanthids
Green Star Polyps
3 Fake Corals :( The horses needed more hitching posts! I'm hoping to replace them when I can afford more real coral.
About Yourself: I'm a commuting college student in Pittsburgh. This is my first saltwater tank (Started 1/8/09) , but definitely not my first fish tank. I decided to make the switch because my fiance is currently serving in Iraq and I needed something to keep me busy. These fish have certainly done the trick, and have also cheered me up more than anything. I spend hours on end in front of this tank.
