And just because its the theme and its sort of relevant.

If you have a strong stomach, its an imperator/emperor angel vs. a crocea clam.

Not really. Sometimes. Kinda :)

Ok around some soft corals, even some LPS but its hit or miss. They will eventually kill inverts. The biggest problem is that its hard to keep nitrates down with puffers in the tank. In that tank though, I was able to keep nitrates at 0 because it was a planted tank with so much macro algae.

Picture of my first and favourite coral, my red open brain which is thriving in the Nano.

Taken with a Panasonic DMC-FS20 Digital Camera
Details: 10MP, 100 ISO, macro focus, 9 spot area focus, exposure -.3, manual white balance scaled to sand.

Almost forgot... This is the coral during feeding to fit with the theme of an "Action Shot."

Thank you again for your help with the picture Jason.
I think that it is a rope fish or an eel. Any ideas?
