Thanks! I think he's going to be a cool addition. The others seem interested but not aggressive, so I hope he settles in happily.

There were two leopard wrasse in his tank and they were actually what I was looking at, but i had them feed the tank and the leopards didn't touch the food, so I passed on them but found this healthy guy eating away.

Good choice passing on non eating leopards. Acclimation is such an uphill battle with them. The Solon is one of my favorites too!

Crazy week but did some tank maintenance and moving around today. Updated FTS:



Some of my favorite Zoas


Cute little yellow sponge, safe to keep?


The peaceful duo


A little blurry but I love his mustache markings under the chin

Thanks Paul! I'm loving it too but sometimes I feel overwhelmed with the size and want to make sure I'm doing things right. Love my wrasses and hope the will get along!!

I have several wrasses together they all get along just fine , I love my red coris wrasses the most as they have lots of personality.
six line just swims side to side and up and down
the malanurus likes diving in the sand
I'm wanting a dragon wrasse for my predator tank
also want a fairy wrasse , their just fun to watch
I found a place to get gorgs ten bucks each they stand about 8 inch high and span about 10inch , I just picked up a few of those looking to get a few more ,
I also just ordered a assorted 10 pack of rock nems red,green ,blue,bi-color,yellow,and pink can't wait to see them there going into the predator tank, couldn't pass by ten bucks each. now that it's getting warmer but not here yet I seem to be finding lots of great deals, it's the shipping that gets you every time. let me wish you lots of good luck on your new tank ,

AH just wait about a year you'll be wanting a 90g

now your new tank looks to be coming along nicely bet your loving the extra room,
wish I could get such crisp pictures that define all the colors . my camera is weird you might get lucky with a pict than any other is dark or blurry or the stupid flash goes off even when shut off ,

that mustache just cracked me up ,

love that possum you got there he looks like sharp

can't wait to see your tank once you get more into it seems you have a green thumb in saltwater. I see that tank going places ,
now let me shut up snickering as I hit reply..

54seaweed, check out the emerald or green sea grass wrasse. They have a juvi at the run down LFS that I seen. Looked them up they are really cool. I want it, but a little large for my tank. Says they have great personalities andcan flip rocks if there is food thought to be under it. Just an idea, pretty green too.

Thanks Seaweed, I love the wrasses so its good to hear about yours, hope mine work it out. I am loving the room but my husband is not since every time I go to buy water I come home with something else (or two)$$ I'm sure when this one is busting at the seams I'm going to want to go bigger 😝

You found a great price on gorgs! And I can't wait to see those rock flowers!! I have my biocube cleaned up and cycling new sand and rock so I can get my flowers out from under the counter and really start appreciate them.
