Well after a much needed rest from octos, and the bad experience with cuttles I have decided to get another Bimac. I enjoyed the Bimacs the most so thats what it will be. Will keep you informed of the little ones new arrival.

Wonderful news! I'm sure your new bimac will enjoy the big tank you have now.

What brand of protein skimmer did you buy? I like mine, but it makes a lot of noise.

Its an Oceanic Plus series 6 Its used from a guy in the DFW forum we talked about, I put it in the sump underneath the tank and it works so much better than the sea clone I had on there
