The other fish are okay, my clowns have taken the brunt of the punishment.

They seem okay, but are a little worse for wear.

I started changing how I manage things to see if it works to manage the aggression in my trigger. I switched to pellets as my primary food source and have been feeding heavily twice a day. It seems to have curbed the trigger's aggression.

That's good. Just keep an eye on those phosphates.

Did some tank maintenance yesterday which included pulling out all the caulerpa I had in there since I got sick of looking at it. I think my tang might be a little sad because he doesn't have it in there to graze on all day.

I also took a couple pictures of the acropora frags I got. 2 of the 3 are doing great, while the blue cali tort didn't make it sadly. Both of these were fresh frags when I got them so it's nice to see them encrusting their plugs nicely.

Thanks! I was really wishy washy about getting the Garf purple bonsai.. but it's grown on me and I am really liking it. The green slimer has been on my most wanted list of corals since I started doing salt water.

How were you wishy washy over that bonsai? I'd kill for one.
