This is awesome. I work in a high school and although I am not in the science department I occasionally go to the Marine Biology class and see what the kids are up to.

Tank up and running! Mascot fish are in! Parameters excellent,everyone is eating and healthy. Pics and vids coming soon. It's still a work in progress. No corals yet. Dropped a bunch on lights ,fish food ect. So it'll be a while before I can purchase Corals for it. I hope to get an Anemone for the clowns to host.

But so far: two osc. Clowns,hippo tang,starry Blenny,tiger brittle starfish,peppermint shrimp,3nass snails 3 blue leg hermit crabs. Want to get some cheato and pods to establish. Rocks had coralline algae initially but it's gone so may need to throw a rock or some shavings in there. Will probably add more rocks also when money permits. Hopefully the parents may come through on donating more fish.The kids love it though!
I appreciate you guys getting us this far ,so far. M.R is a fantastic community
