    it's great to be able to look back and see the progress. when some much work goes into getting there, we don't see all the gradual changes and progress.

    not trying to be the TP but i hope you know that scopas is going to outgrow your tank rather quickly.

    keep up the good work, it's paying off :b6:

    Looks like your off to a great start. I have to agree with A4Twenty, the scopas (or any tang) will outgrow a tank that small.

    How long have you been an addict for now?
    Upgrade in the works! Keep looking for an update.

    We've been addicted since just before Christmas.. All we wanted was some clowns for our daughter - and it turned into this. Then not too long, I got a close friend of mine at work addicted and I've been helping him through it mostly. He's got a nice huge tank, so I guess I would donate my scopas when the time comes..

    Thanks guys for all the help!
