Bye, bye biocube...upgrade time!!

A little cleaned up and moved around FTS.


Still no fish, I'm at 6 weeks fishless after ich so I'm almost ready. My possum wrasse (aka mr. Mustache) is doing great in QT and I hope to move him into display in a week or so. I think my next addition will be flasher wrasse pair, not sure if I'm going McCoskers or carpenter....we'll see what the LFS has in stock.

A few other pics...some of my Zoas are coming back to life and taking off. I'm ready for a zoa garden!!

Picked up two fish for the new tank today. Got them home and in a bucket, salinity of their water was 1.018!! And of course I slacked on my top offs this weeks so tank is up to 1.027! Agh!! I've been dripping the fish for almost two hours and slowing switching out tank water for rodi water 2 cups at a time and I'm only at tank 1.025 and fish bucket, 1.02...I'm going to be up all night at this rate trying to get them acclimated.

Well my new diamond goby jumped last😥 I had the glass lid on, but there is just the slightest space still opened. He was a pretty big size, I'm surprised he fit through it.

My other fish is doing well and has been out exploring & eating this morning. There are so many colors and he looks different from different angles and in different light.



He's really impressive when his dorsal fin is up, but it's hard to get a good picture of it. Here's it partially up.

Sorry to hear about the diamond goby, that really stinks. However that carpenter's wrasse is gorgeous! I would look into a screen top versus glass. Glass tops are more of a freshwater thing. You really want as much oxygen getting to the water surface as possible.
PS, I got me a wrasse acclimating right now.

Exciting! Can't wait to see which one!

What kind of screen do you use? I just figured that was easier for people to cut than glass and that's why everyone did screen tops, lol! Oops!

I bought a screen window kit at Lowe's and used bird netting that I also go there. I plan on switching to the clear BRS 1/4" netting possibly tomorrow. My buddy go some that I plan to get a piece of. The holes in the bird netting are 1/2", too big for the new wrasse.
