Thanks!

I was considering getting a few females to go with him. I have room in my tank for more stock and can't decide what I want.

I finally got my parameters under control. It takes 300ml of two part dosing weekly to keep it at appropriate levels.

The caulerpa prolifera is filling in nicely. It did take root in some rocks that I pulled out so I'm waiting to see if it grows from the roots. If it does then I'll remove it, however having it in there is keeping my tang happy because he grazes from it regularly. So I guess we will see how it does.



There's some aiptasia that I'm going in to take care of today, the last time I hit it with vinegar, it just seemed to grow a whole bunch more around where I treated even though the main piece died.

Very nice! I used to have one. Very colorful when they get to flashing. Hold a mirror up to the tank and see what he does!

It looks like the lack of nitrate in my tank is definitely the cause of my birdsnest browning out.

3 different times I waited 5 or 6 days between dosing my potassium nitrate in my tank. Each time my birdsnest lost all the green coloration and within 2 days of dosing it again it regained some of the color back.

Ugh, my blue throat trigger snapped and started tearing up my clowns and wrasse. It looks like I am going to have to trade him in
