Thanks guys! Took a little video of feeding time this morning. I really love the new solon fairy wrasse, can't believe I don't see more of them, the colors are incredible. Ignore the algae on the back wall, I picked up a few different snails yesterday and they are starting to make a dent.

My flasher wrasse jumped last night I couldn't find him all morning in the tank and then there he was just behind the plant beside the tank. My salon fairy seems happy he is gone though.

Awe man I'm sorry to hear about the flasher! He was a pretty one. IME the flashers are the most likely to jump. Do you have coveting in the tank?

Bye, bye biocube...upgrade time!!

Quick update on the tank. A little frustrated with some algae and a few corals slowing dying but most things are looking great. I've been upping water changes and pulling the GHA every few days, I need to test Ca and Alk to see if I need to start dosing. Anyway, some pics...

FTS


I added a pair of clowns, I'd like to get an RBTA for them soon


Also added this little Cardinal


There's a 20 minute window in the evening when the sun comes through and lights this gorg up and it looks like it might burst into flames, sooo pretty!



Zoas are one thing doing really well in this tank


And not proud of this but it's funny, my snail with a GHA wig.

I've been so focused on the RFA tank that I thought my reef tank needed some attention. I ordered a red zoanthid sponge with my RFA order and they sent me two 😄 one has white zoanthids and the other has yellow.





Also picked up my first RBTA, hope my clowns find it and host it eventually. I think it's a little too small for them right now though.




And got some dragons breath, hoping It takes away from the GHA I'm still battling.

My clowns are stupid. They'll go in my rbta but then go back to their stupid torch coral!
