Here are some updated photos of my two tanks. They're both 29g. I am so happy everything survived for the two weeks I was gone and my friend was just feeding the fish.

Tank 1:
Started December 2004
2 Ocellaris Clown fish
1 Purple Firefish
1 Yellow Clown Goby
1 Line-spot Flasher Wrasse

Tank 2:
Started September 2006
1 Gold-Stripe Maroon Clown
1 6-Line Wrasse

At first, somewhat but really as long as you do water changes every other week with water from the fish store then you'll be fine. Also bring in water sample periodically to have them test the levels.

Besides the water changes, I only feed the fish and sometimes if the water starts getting low before a water change I add so r/o water.

Yeah and that is why you have to add only r/o water to top it off, because the salt doesn't evaporate so the salinity will be too high otherwise.

Nice corals. What kind of lighting are you using? Power compacts?

You found Nemo!

Great pics! That's quite a setup you have. I tried keeping freshwater fish for a couple of years and found myself overrun with guppies. Ended up giving the whole setup to a friend when I moved out to Cali.

I've always been intimidated by the saltwater tanks after hearing stories of people that spent $$$ on fish, only to have them die within days/weeks of bringing them home.

So cool. I've always wanted to get a saltwater aquarium. Shots of Nemo are amazing. Great job.
