Thank You and Welcome to the Thread !
The rock is not glued and my big snail bull dozes the rocks all over.
Once I get them glued, the anemone stops moving, and I recover from holiday spending I plan on upgrading my lights, powerhead, and a controller. After all of that I would add coral.

I was thinking of taking all the rocks out and gluing them together and then placing it back into the tank. The rocks would be wet and have to remain wet during the glue curing process. My hope is to find something that would bond to wet objects and have a very fast curing time.

I have heard of Snails pushing over frags, but never one moving around rocks that sort of size. My suspicion is that the nem keeps moving because it is unhappy with the water, not the placement of the rocks in it.

I notice you don't have a skimmer listed in your future shopping plans. Was that an oversight or conscious decision? How is the current stocking list looking?

Look at the size of that guy. My rocks are more or less balanced on each other. He is about the size of the bottom of a coke can.

I am waiting for a collection cup for my skimmer. It is a Sapphire Aquatics nano skimmer. The company has gone out of business so I have had to get a custom one made. They are amazing skimmers and I cant wait to use it.

Current stock:
2-Skunk Clowns
1-Pygmy Angel
1-Cleaner Shrimp
1-Fire Shrimp

The anemone keeps moving toward the powerhead. I move the powerhead because I dont want a anemone soup in the tank and he keeps following it

Tank has been running great. All of the livestock is fat and happy! I have not posted anything in some time now and thought I would give an update.

Well this tank will be moving into my home office/Mancave soon. I bought a Custom Neo 90 tank and all the equipment, but never got around to making the stand and transferring everything over.

That leads me to this last weekend; I went to MACNA 2012 and bought a new tank!!!!! After I get the new tank in and cycled; I will move this tank to my office. I want to hook up a webcam and have a live feed broadcasting.

Current stock: (Named by Wife)
2-Skunk Clowns (Wall-E & Eva)
1-Pygmy Angel (Twitchy)
1-Cleaner Shrimp (Cocktail)
1-Fire Shrimp (Brochette)
1-Chevron Tang (Petrol)
