Thanks red sea!

Unfortunately I found the new clown dead in the overflow today though . I think my other clown got to him overnight. He was a lot smaller than her . I'll have to get a bigger guy when I try again. Shrimp is doing fantastic though! Can't get a pic as he's setup shop in the back of the tank for now

I hate when they hide like that , my red coris wrasse was a hider till he discovered he had a nice size swimming area , he has some incredible colors on him ,
sorry to hear about the clown hope you have better luck this time around ,
here's a thought do you have a QT tank remove your clown for like a day or so rearrange the rocks some than add them both in together it will probably make things easier on both you and the fish

Sorry to hear about the loss, bribo. I lost the second Clown I added to my 29g Cube. Not sure if it was due to the first one I had, but if I had to guess, I may have said it was. Maybe mine were too close in size?

I'm happy to gear about your shrimp doing well! Haha, mine has that same setup in the back of the tank. They know we want to look at them, don't they? So they decide to tease us and setup shop in the back!

Unfortunately I do not and rearranging isn't an option with the corals attached to the rocks. I honestly just think he was to small.

Bribos 40 breeder! (Finally...)

I cannot for the life of me figure out why my red planet seems to be receding still. It is occurring underneath the coral atm. I cannot tell if it's still occurring but a good chunk from underneath the main branches has receded. I'm stumped because all the other sps are fine now. Even my Hawkins is growing again... I'm really worried about it as this is my favorite coral and has been through heck and back with me!

Alk is stable at 10. Calcium-400, mag-1350. No trates and phosphates are down to .08. This coral has been through red bugs, a mag spike, alk swings. The whole 9 yards so I'm really confused. I'll try to get a pick of the receded area tomorrow. It is hard to tell though if it has stopped or not though as it seemed to be a tiny bit each day. Grr
