The Jann's can be found. They are a fish that needs to be searched for though. They are not readily available in most LFS. I think you'll have better luck looking online for them.

The fin in front of the dorsal fin is the indicator. One is pointy the other is squared off. I forgot which is which, but I think the pointy is the male.

If you used a 48" x 6 bulb or a 48" x 8 bulb fixture you'd have enough light to keep anything in your tank you desired. Assuming of course you didn't use all actinic bulbs :D

Your eyes didn't see the reason the nassarius were on the shell or on the flesh. They only saw the fact that they were on there. Go talk to Barry at Clams Direct. Ask an authority if you doubt the...

You should be fine. If you lose some coraline, no big deal, it'll grow back. You just want to keep the biological colonies alive. Adding a heater and powerhead will do just what you need it to do....

I run the 3C, 5C, 8C and the old style Archipelago HOT.

I love all the skimmers. They have been performing flawlessly and the customer service from Bermuda is great.
