I am addicted to partial water changes

I did my first water change a little over a week ago and already there is increased coraline growth and my leather coral and moon coral are opening up more. One more thing, is it normal for a flame angel and coral beauty to play together. At first the coral picked on the flame but now they swim together

With adequate territory, I have seen all kinds of fish behave around each other without problems that would be expected normally. Just be aware that if they are "playing" today they may decide to be at war tomorrow.

Can't think of a better addiction to have

What made you place both a flame and CB in the same tank? As Hoops stated I would expect aggression between them, but maybe there's enough room for them to each have their own space. If I wasn't already fully stocked I might have tried the same thing.

Keep an eye on them and be prepared to move one out should they decide to change friendly behavior.

if you're bored, you could come over to my house and do water changes for free if you'd like. I don't have a problem with that

I first had the coral beuty, then it was between the blue naso tang and the flame angel. I read that the blue tang is susseptible to to disease so I went with the flame, I was worried about fighting but the store owner said it would be ok. I guess I was lucky

My water changes are easy. The hardest part of doing a 200 gal WC is rolling the hose back up.
