Now she's out all day long. Usually hunting for pods on the rocks or begging for food if I walk by

I saw one yesterday that looked fat and happy, but I can't get any fish yet until I'm sure the ich has died off, another 5-6 weeks I think. I think this one will definitely be on my list of must haves.

Just make sure she's eating before you buy her and the mouth looks alright

Still have to get 15 lbs of rock but am going to do it slowly so there is not a lot of die off at one time and the bacteria has time to catch up. It will also give me time to play with aquascape.

Zoas, shrooms, hammer, cabbage leather, cup coral, lobo, gorgs, monti



Top down



Free blue tubes! Hope they grow out fast to cover that ugly putty.



Acans



Blastos and baby cinnamon grandis palys



Sun coral, knobby gorg



Tube anemone

What gorg is that in the back? Yellow and blue polyps...that'd be a NPS guy wouldn't it?

It is NPS, it's a yellow finger gorg. The polyps are actually white must just be the shade and lighting. I've had it in my biocube since last May. It struggled in the cube because I didn't have a good shaded spot for it so would get algae growth and I would have to scrub it almost weekly to get it off so polyps could open. Unfortunately it lost a few stems with that process along the way. It seems to like this new spot in the shade and has had open polyps consistently since going in. I had a red gorg and tiny blueberry that didn't make it. I don't think I'll go for anymore nps other then my sun and this yellow finger. They are cool but just too hard to keep.

And the tube anemone. Sadly, won't have any NPS in my tank. Just can't get them going without issues.

You not lying your plugging away looks awesome , now you got room for all those baby nems ,
have you thought of maybe a Mc Cosker's Flasher wrasse it would bring in more color to a awesome looking tank , for some reason I been becoming a big wrasse junkie already have 6 , I love my engineer goby in my reef they are very laid back , and when they grow bigger they look like a miniature eel , they also have a great personality always greeting me as I walk in the room ,
may even like the dark blue reef chromis they make a very nice addition in small schools ,
a long nose hawk fish would be another choice beautiful fish ,
keep up the good work as now you have tons of room to play again
