I did QT every single fish and dip every single coral since I did the hyposalinity treatment almost 2-years ago. Things were looking just fine for a long time. I guess this would go to show if you want to be truly ich free, QT everything wet.

I got an awesome present for my first fathers day(thanks to the wife). Another Vortech MP40W to put on the other side of my tank. No more Maxi-Jet Mods now. I didn't bother taking a picture of it since I took a picture of the first one I got.
In the meantime, I am just waiting for the tank to remain fallow for about a month more.
I have also decided to add a copperband to the fish list. I am sick of dealing with aiptasia so hopefully this fish will help me fight it off.

Thanks! I really didn't want so much money spent on me for fathers day, but I definitely got to appreciate the wife on this one. She got me something I wanted down the road and its one more thing I can cross of my list of upgrades for the tank.

I finally added fish into my tank. I purchased all of the fish from liveaquaria. I got:

A big Australian Copperband Butterfly
Desjardini Sailfin Tang
2x O. Clownfish
Golden Wrasse.

So far everything is looking good. I will post pics soon.

would you ever consider putting an arch between those two piles of rock?

Probably not, I like having 2-islands. However, years down the road if I run out of space and I can obtain more real estate by doing so, then I would consider it. The arc is a good idea though, that would be pretty cool to build one that goes across only on the back half of the tank leaving the beach up front exposed to full light.

Thanks, sorry for the delay in the pictures. My lights turn on in about an hour or so, I will take pictures then and post them today. My copperband is huge and eating like a champ!
