    My only real purpose with this tank is just to enjoy the natural look and not get all crazy about corals and fish with it. It has tons of pods of all types thriving in it along with feather dusters and different types of macro. Oh and mysis shrimp.

    Eventually I will add Dwarf Seahorses for my wife...

    Right now it just has a couple of snails, no crabs and one peppermint shrimp that I added a couple of weeks ago to eat all the aiptasia...which he did.

    Thanks Karin and Jack. Yes the unknown "jellyfish" are in there...possibly Hydroids...and I still have them.

    I think it's looking fantastic --You just don't see macro algae done well in the display tank very often. You should look into Halymenia. I think it would look pretty nice in there.

    Is the little sprig in the front Halophila or another type of caulerpa?

    Thanks Jordan, I have really enjoyed it so far.

    The sea grass stuff is ALL Caulerpa Prolifera....

    If you look at the bottom right of the second picture (under the mushroom) I have some red leaf type of macro not sure if that is the same as Halymenia???

    The Halimeda is from you Chris. That stuff is really sensitive. If anything changes in the tank...it dies off and slowly comes back.
