Is it.. just for the coral or do you have fish too?

i have 9 fish, a blue clam, 3 kinds of fancy shrimps, snails, hermit crabs, starfish, and some little tiny tube worms (the worms are hitch hikers, they came with the rocks) the corals themselves are animals too (they have algae in their tissues and thus live off of light light i a plant) they retract with bothered and send out tentacles at night to gather food and over time they grow and change shape which is so cool.

reef tanks are SO much better than fresh water, there is so much life in this tank and its so relaxing to just sit and watch this tiny beautiful little community.

I have a 15 gallon tank myself, but it's freshwater so it's not as interesting like yours is.

Although my tank has seen better days :lol:, I have 2 fish left, the other died from age as it's been over 3 years and freshwater fish don't live for longer than a couple of years.

The coral sounds very interesting though :D
