I do have a mesh top. The hawk fish could jump thru a 1/4Ē opening. So I got a larger hawk fish. It waited until one of the tops was off by a 1/2Ē and jumped.

Itís been 24 hours since the introduction of the little squirrel fish and the mini hippo,.... I was worried about the mini hippo because I hadnít seen him since I been home from work but low and behold out he comes from the rocks swimming around with the big guys ,... he is sooo tiny ! Itís literally an inch long ,... the squirrel fish has been eating well and the new flame angel has been grazing along the rocks like a happy camper .... there is zero aggression now so olí Dary has breathed a sigh of relief

Glad to hear the hippo showed up I to purchased one from a local fish store about a inch long I actually got her for 10.00 due to the fact she was covered in ick and very sickly I figured 10.00 was worth a shot to try and save her .I used the tank transfer method I've used for years with 3 10 gallon qt tanks to my surprise she made it and has been a very big joy to my reef for two years now .. Hope yours gives you many years of enjoyment also ..Click image for larger version

Itís been awhile since Iíve posted because the tank underwent a bad set of affairs,..... first off ,it all started with the introduction of the coral Beauty ,..a day or so after its introduction it was covered in ick which as you all know sucks ! .... there was absolutely no way I was ever going to be able to remove him from the system due to the massive amount of rocks and caves in the aquarium ,....well., without going into too much fanfare it invested the other residents in the tank .
I treated the aquarium with a organic treatment recommended by the staff at the lfs , not too much to lose at this point .
I lost my powder blue which really pissed me off because Iíve worked so hard to keep one going .the foxface and scopace tang looked pretty hopeless for awhile but pulled thru and are back to normal again ,my new squirrel fish never was invested and seems happy.
The organic treatment caused the protein skimmer to go nuts of course and it took a few weeks of water changes to finally get it to the point of being able to fire it up again. Needless to say,a few weeks of no protein skimmer ,ick and just a lack of normal maintenance took a little wind out of my sails.
To pass the time I dedicated a lot more time to flying my drones ,( another really expensive hobby !!! ) I find that it really helped me get thru trying not to do too much to the tank while things ran its course .
All in all , everything is getting back to normal again , a large outbreak of aptasia awaits me , kinda like putting out a fire with a wet sponge ., but Iíll get thru this too.

I have a two year old i1 V2. With the X5 camera. I use my X3 camera on a Osmo. I use my Mavics (Air and Pro) most of the time as the i1 attracts a lot of attention. Love the goggles. Got my Part 107 so I do some public safety jobs now and then. Stay safe and legal. Join the AMA for the liability insurance and follow their rules. Enjoy. Fish still cost more.
